The only constant in the world is change. When TD professionals advocate preparing for the VUCA era, changes have quietly begun. Looking at the increasingly global digital process, the demand for talent development is also increasing. According to the ATD’s 2019 research report The Future of Work: Technology, Forecasting, and Talent Reserve, only 24 percent of the interviewed TD professionals expressed optimism that the employees in their organization possess the skills they need now and in the next five years. Those low-skilled jobs will be the ones most affected and those with medium-skilled and customer-oriented jobs will also be greatly affected.
The pandemic in early 2020 was a surprise test for the recent corporate talent development strategy. ATD’s new Talent Development Capability Model also clearly states that digital transformation is one of the biggest change factors that L&D professionals need to face. In follow-up work, how should the TD department combine the digital innovation methods to help enterprises develop, condense, and retain digital talent more quickly and effectively? And how does it realize its own digital transformation?
There is no way that we can talk about digitalization without personally experiencing it. Combined with the theme of the meeting, the ATD 2020 China Summit will be fully upgraded and a high-level virtual summit will be created through digital means. ATD will integrate domestic and foreign excellent learning leader resources, break regional boundaries, and enter the digital environment with you to explore the important topic of talent development in digital transformation.
