McKinsey calls talent “the holy grail of technology transformations.” It delivers the biggest business impact, but it isn’t easy to execute — and that might be why so many CIOs push it down on the priority list.
But even if you’re ready to lead with a people-first approach, you can’t build your future-ready workforce if you don’t know what it should look like.
For O&A CEO Dan Roberts’ CIO Whisperers column, Will Markow, VP of Applied Research and Talent at Emsi Burning Glass, outlined the future-ready skills that will give your organization “first-mover advantage.” He also explains how you can maximize your reskilling ROI and optimize your workforce planning roadmap around “the 4 Bs” of talent management.
With the pandemic accelerating many companies’ digital transformation efforts, technology executives now have their sights set on ambitious, strategic initiatives designed to drive the business forward and help steel it against future disruptions. But all of those plans will be at risk if you can’t attract and retain the talent you need to deliver on them.
