Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Leading Innovation, Influencing, Managing Constant Change - these are hard skills to train - particularly in a business world that’s changing faster and faster. Workforce development has become the No.1 people challenge for businesses globally. Technology transformation, globalisation and shifting supply chains make professionalisation of entire workforces and management a critical need.
