The Skills Obsession
It seems like everywhere we look, people are talking about skills. Upskilling. Reskilling. Skill gaps. Skills data. In short, there seems to be a skills obsession.
In this podcast season, we talked to thinkers, writers, leaders, and practitioners about the current state of thinking on why and how we are managing skills at the people and organizational level. We specifically cover topics such as:
- What are organizations’ overall purpose in focusing on skills, both now and in the future? What are they actually doing, and what is their aspiration?
- How are organizations identifying, quantifying, and communicating about skills?
- How are employees being involved in the identification, validation, and upkeep of skills? To what extent do employees “own” skills?
- What are the different roles of technology in understanding, quantifying, and maintaining skills?
