The digital skills gap is not only real, but it’s broader than we have thought – it goes beyond typical IT and DevOps skills into every day digital technologies.

As new technologies are adopted across all functional areas in an organization, tasks automated, and new jobs created, more and more employees must be digital literate.

Yet getting there is not always easy. New hires frequently don’t have all the skills needed for success [1], only 11% of organizations have all the digital skills needed to succeed [2], and 51% of organizations don’t have a strategy for managing and developing skills in a digital world [3].

In this webinar, Emily Wiese (LinkedIn profile) Vice President, Digital Skills Portfolio, will take an in-depth look at digital literacy today, giving you tools and strategies to help your organization along the road of digital transformation.

Discuss:

  • Trends in today’s everyday digital skills,
  • Methods for assessing your organization’s digital literacy, and
  • Approaches to helping your organization develop the skills to efficiently accomplish their everyday tasks.

Those leading a function have arguably the greatest impact on overall business performance, yet organizations continue to under-invest in developing this level of their talent pipeline.

Why is this a challenge?

With significant spans of responsibility, function leaders—such as those leading an organization unit, geographic region, product group or customer segment—offer immense competitive value.

Although company executives possess power and influence, functional executives provide the most obvious impact on company performance.

While strategic managers determine the company’s mission and direction, functional managers control expenses, manage resources, make decisions about specific projects, and drive the success or failure of many strategic priorities.

Unfortunately, most function leaders have not had any targeted leadership development for this type of role, and thus, are limited in truly elevating their performance.

Many function leaders have confided: “I was not really sure what this job should look like and how I should be spending my time. I needed to understand how I should be operating at all levels.”

In This Session Learn:

  • Why the value and influence of function leaders has never been stronger
  • The five roles most critical to function leader success
  • The development experiences that accelerate function leader performance
  • A smart business case for securing a greater development investment in those leading a function

How IBM Turned Its Online Course Dropout Problem
Into A Success Story

IBM faced a real problem with its online Big Data University.

The content was excellent, but the dropout rate was high. After implementing an Open Badge program, every metric, from new attendees to course completions to the average number of courses taken, increased well beyond expectations.

Join this session to see how IBM increased enrollments and turned dropouts into repeat customers.

You’ll get an insider’s view of the “before and after” statistics behind this wildly successful program.

Presenter: David Leaser, Senior Program Executive, Innovation and Growth Initiatives, IBM Training & Skills

Part 2:
Organizational Network Analysis for Developing & Retaining Talent

As organizations implement matrix structures, establish virtual teams, and outsource functions, they are putting greater faith in informal networks to get work done.

Unfortunately, leaders have less visibility into these informal networks.  As a result, they can make decisions with blinders on.

Organizational network analysis, ONA, provides a way to x-ray an organization, to illuminate and analyze the patterns of informal relationships that employees use to make decisions, solve problems and share information.

Steve will introduce you to ONA and discuss how it can be used to identify emerging leaders, improve collaboration and innovation, develop talent, and increase retention.

Presenter: Stephen Garcia, (LinkedIn profile) Managing Director, Contemporary Leadership Advisors

The term “test automation” is misleading. The testing process includes defining test objectives, creating test cases, writing test scripts, setting up test environments, scheduling test runs, reviewing test results, and providing feedback to development.

If you think about it, we really only automate a single—yet critical—part of that process: test execution.

The impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics on testing will fundamentally transform testing into a revenue-generating profit center that increases customer conversion and retention.

But how do we get there?

Join this web seminar to learn how AI and analytics will change the way teams test software.

Also Learn:

  • What an AI and analytics solution looks like and how it will transform testing
  • How you can apply AI and analytics in testing, with a focus on the user experience
  • The seven key steps required to achieve true test automation
