As industries transform, organizations are preparing for a future of work that looks completely different from the current landscape. L&D finds itself at the epicenter of this transformation and must outpace change to lead the way.
However, most L&D functions are not prepared to manage the enormity of this change and must radically improve effectiveness and efficiency to create a strategic roadmap for the future.
