A Sneak-Peek to Learning and Development Trends
- Global Knowledge Technologies

    dramatically, innovation has achieved a
    significant stature among the youth worldwide,
    where they are found to be experimenting with
    cutting-edge technologies and coming up with
    utterly innovative start-up ideas.
  • India being the third-largest startup ecosystem
    is now home to over 8,900 tech-startups with
    1,300 startups added in 2019. In this context, it
    is good to see that the growth of technologies
    has been ushering paradigm shift to the nations
    economic state as well and making room for the
    need of learning and development among the
    professionals across varied designations.

A Sneak-Peek to Learning and Development Trends
Getting Technology Adaptable
  • Becoming acquainted with emerging technologies
    takes time and adequate training for
    professionals working in the IT sector. Business
    leaders across the globe are concentrating on
    getting trained so that they can make the most
    out of the technological advancements and meet
    their business goals. Leading corporates are also
    making initiatives to organize training and
    development programs for their employees, aiming
    to enhance organizational performance. While
    there has been an impressive rise in
    the corporate training front in 2019, it is
    forecasted that 2020 will also be a year of great
    success in terms of professionals enrolling in

Learning and Development Trends 2020
  • Focusing on Agility Companies are taking the
    plunge to retain their old employees by
    encouraging them to remain agile and be a
    lifelong learner. The LD teams of companies are
    increasingly stressing upon motivating the
    employees to take up professional
    certifications and become an asset to the
  • Agility is the ability to adapt and respond to
    change agile organizations view change as an
    opportunity, not a threat.
  • Jim Highsmith, American software engineer
  • Reskilling the Talent Employee skill development
    is being included as a priority in the LD plans
    of top-notch companies now. From reskilling the
    talents by enrolling them into artificial
    intelligence courses to making them learn tableau
    and data science, companies are leaving no stone
    unturned to make sure their employees are
    equipped with new-age skills.
  • Boosting organizational cultures Taking this
    into consideration, companies are deciding upon
    taking the benefit of learning and development
    programs to heighten a culture within the
    organizations that are aligned appropriately to
    the immediate as well as future goals.

Technologies to look forward
  • From Artificial intelligence to Cloud Computing,
    technological innovations is already disrupting
    business in every industry, steering innumerable
    opportunities. However, there has been also a lot
    of debate and discussion regarding the
    technologies replacing several jobs across all
    the industries.
  • To justify that, it is been estimated that by
    2020, 46 of the workforce will be absorbed in
    entirely new jobs that do not exist today or will
    be deployed in jobs that have drastically
    revamped skill sets.
  • Contradictory to this, according to Gartner AI
    will create 2.3 Million Jobs in 2020, while
    eradicating only 1.8 Million jobs, raising the
    spirits and hope of employers.

Technologies to look forward
  • In the case of work and job ecosystem as well,
    the emergence of new technologies which stand as
    a job threat for many professionals, on the other
    hand for professionals who keep updated with the
    skills that are aligned with the technologies,
    attain a competitive edge in the job market.
  • Right skills are required to keep thriving in the
    industry, which can save several jobs, ignoring
    them can ironically put a full-stop in the paths
    of career goals. The current situation when mass
    layoffs are happening worldwide, with top
    companies showing thousands of employees the exit
    door, a number of organizations and professionals
    are considering taking IT Certifications.

Towards a Eureka Moment
  • The beginning of a new decade sustains great
    hopes for the IT professionals who indulge more
    into LD activities and develop their
    potentialities to make data-driven decisions and
    perform as per the need of the hour, meeting the
    dynamic needs of the industry. LD teams are
    expected to come together to generate productive
    results based on the skill requirements of each
    employee. It has to be kept in mind, that LD can
    only be beneficial if it is customized as per
    individual employees career goals and
    aspirations. Companies with rigid and
    one-size-fits-all LD strategies can never attain
    success with those who have set flexible and
    quality LD plans.
