Closing the digital skill gap: How personalized learning journeys help to build the right skills for your digital future

For every digital transformation to succeed, skills and capabilities are fundamental to execution. This includes not just experts in topics like AI, Cloud, Data Analytics – but also a huge number of “Translator” roles: people who are able to build the bridges between different functions and innovative digital solutions. Yet, often you won’t find all these people on the hiring market, but need to build them internally.

In this panel discussion, we will discuss the pressing topics for teams and entire companies in the context of these upskilling projects, including (but not limited to):

  • How to build an end-to-end digital skills strategy
  • How to tailor the skill-building offerings to the different learning goals, different prior knowledge, and different learning styles of individual employees
  • How to engage people with a combination of blended self-learning and collaborative learning journeys
