In this digital era, faced with the increasing impact of artificial intelligence on labor, human capital must remain an organization’s most important asset. Amid a constantly changing economy in which the jobs of tomorrow will not look like the jobs of today, developing agility, transmitting essential expertise, capitalizing on and deepening knowledge, and anticipating and acquiring the skills of the future are challenges just as strategic as those of organizational performance and developing local employment markets.
An evolution is taking place in corporate training and learning today. Corporate universities and talent development models must adapt to the challenges faced by companies and employees in an environment of constant transformation.
Opportunities for learning in the workplace have never been greater nor more accessible than they are today. The rapid development of virtual, mobile, on-demand, open, and customizable training solutions has revolutionized not only our traditional educational system, but also quickly advanced to its more utilitarian business counterpart—the corporate university. While organizations have eagerly appropriated innovative offerings like MOOCs, they are also beginning to see challenges arise in tandem with the opportunities these new educational methods and tools present.
