What’s coming down the line?

The global pandemic has had far-reaching consequences on the business of training and development and the effects can be seen in Don’s Global Sentiment Survey.

So which learning technologies are being adopted and opportunities exist in the world of talent development for you to exploit? Good question.

There are some surprises in terms of learning analytics and some even bigger surprises in terms of the views of upskilling and reskilling.

If you are a training vendor or an independent learning consultant and you can help your clients to make sense of learning data, I think that’s a rich opportunity

As Don admits: It’s not the case that everything respondents to the GSS survey believe to be hot and interesting will in fact be adopted later on.

But, it is the case that every learning trend and technology that has now been adopted has at one point predicted by the kinds of people who complete this survey! That’s the point!

By asking learning and development stakeholders, I get a sense of what's coming down the line in learning 3-4 years from now… TWEET THIS! AI (Artificial Intelligence) isn't a single thing by itself, it's more like a component of other things that we are doing in learning technology … TWEET THIS!
