Finally, it highlights emerging skill clusters that you and your team require to address these challenges and stay relevant. A must for L&D professionals wanting to boost their value by adopting emerging, in-demand skills, the session will highlight practical strategies to upskill and experiment in these domains. Topics include approaches to effectively contextualize, combine, and develop capability in design thinking, data literacy, marketing, systems design, and performance consulting.
