Three Trends Making Modern Learning Cultures A Business Necessity

By |

We've arrived at a new economy. Just as the Industrial Revolution fundamentally changed how business was done, the digital transformation is doing the same. But in this new era, an organization's biggest advantage is not its technology. In fact, contrary to dystopian suggestions that artificial intelligence and machine learning will leave humans out in the cold, the forces shifting today’s business landscape call for an even greater focus on human skills.
