Synopsis

Technology is no longer just a business enabler. Increasingly, it is the business. This unprecedented technology transformation is evolving new roles and demanding new skillsets. Continual learning has moved from ‘nice-to-have’ to provable competitive differentiator.

To acquire and retain talent, organizations need to provide access to an abundance of multimodal resources for technology professionals, in hard and soft skills (crucial for developing effective leaders and communicators in this tech-everywhere world).

Which means the big question is: do you know where your organization is going and what your workforce needs to get there?

Join Skillsoft and select group of tech, security and operations leaders for this unique, interactive, peer-to-peer conversation based on learning consumption data patterns across a user base of nearly 12 million technology professionals, representing thousands of world-leading organizations, including 65 percent of the Fortune 500.

Based on over 25 million hours of interactions, we’ll be challenging lazy – and all too common – thinking on what is happening in the technology market in general and providing some vital insight. Exploring how technology professionals are using continuous learning to cope with today’s fast-changing environment. Showing what is hot, what is not, and pointing out some compelling patterns that will help you learn better and skill up in all the right places.
