The winds of technological disruption are creating a tectonic shift in traditional business models across the globe. The technology needs of enterprises are undergoing massive transformation thereby posing a massive challenge to the IT services organizations building solutions for them. The customer’s expectation from IT services organizations is, therefore, changing from plain project execution to “Outcome-based models” and “Product mindset”.
Today service organizations need agile teams with knowledge and skills on digital technologies, full technology stacks, user experience design, micro-services based architecture, design thinking, and product engineering. While companies adopt different approaches to addressing this huge knowledge and skills gap, there are lingering doubts about whether the efforts will result in a sustainable learning eco-system that will keep pace with the rapid changes that will continue to happen in the many technology areas that make up the digital transformation landscape.
An organization-wide talent transformation program has to holistically address the needs of fresh hires, reskilling of existing talent working in billable projects and existing people transitioning between projects. Making a deep and impactful change across the organization is a key imperative for the learning and development teams. But at the same time, the sheer size of the industry and the scale of operations of the leading organizations make this a tremendous challenge. It is abundantly clear that traditional models of training, which result in sub-optimal outcomes for a majority of the learners, are insufficient. Instead, a coherent strategy and an approach that guarantees results is the need of the hour.
