The fourth, and the most important, is supporting an environment of “learning to learn.” We have inherited a workplace and a culture where, for too long, learning in education systems force feed knowledge, rather than teaching how to learn. As a result, we have workplaces where changes occur at a pace too fast for most to keep up with.
You will hear terms like “upskilling” and “reskilling”, but these are down to your ability to adapt and learn. It’s crucial to put the emphasis on the “learning” aspect, as this has been missing. How do we allow our people to learn? How do we allow that process of making mistakes, being able to learn from those mistakes and then acquiring that knowledge and methodology to be able to move on and embed that new piece of information into our workflow? I am seeing a clear focus on that.
Those would be the four main trends of focus for 2022. Then, of course, there is the technological aspect where we will see a lot more AR and VR driven concepts.
