Navigating Upskilling in a Transforming World

March 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

In the era of AI and digital transformation, it is important for leaders of global enterprises to adopt a strategic approach to enhance the skills of their workforce, thereby advancing digital maturity.

Leadership, spanning across general management and senior roles in all functions, confronts the challenge of making informed decisions about substantial investments in Digital & Tech initiatives. As leaders, they are at the forefront of these decisions which involve assessing and prioritising digital initiatives worthy of investment.  Equally vital is the internal dissemination of this digital vision. Leaders need to be effective advocates, onboarding the entire organisation and ensuring that every member comprehends the strategic value of digital initiatives. It fosters a culture of innovation, collaboration, and adaptability, essential elements for navigating the challenges of today’s digital age.

Simultaneously, the broader workforce, including staff, and junior to middle management across all functions, are required to adapt to the transitioning role of technology such as upskilling in their respective domains and equipping them to harness new technologies, digital solutions, and AI in their daily tasks.

Furthermore, professionals within the Digital & Tech function of a corporate entity demand continuous training opportunities to stay abreast of the rapidly evolving and changing digital landscape within their expertise.

Given these challenges, corporations must adopt a holistic approach to digital upskilling across all levels and functions within their organisation. This comprehensive strategy ensures a uniform understanding and cultivates the necessary digital maturity at the senior management level, empowering them to make informed decisions, particularly regarding investments in digital initiatives.
