As the pandemic reached global proportions and entire workforces shut down, laid off large numbers or moved to remote operations, the training world continued to spin — albeit, perhaps more slowly than normal.
Could the next significant event in the evolution of the training industry be the post-pandemic era? The answer remains to be seen, but if so, the effect of this era would be the normalizing of remote and virtual training.
It’s not that learning isn’t important. However, what many participants say they gain most from training has little to do with the content or quality of the learning itself.
If it seems like everything is changing more quickly than it used to, it’s because it is — exponentially so. Moore’s Law has major implications for every aspect of organizational strategy and operations, and training is no exception.
Needless to say, the 2020s thus far have looked dramatically different than the decade that just ended. The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in historic changes impacting nearly every aspect of our lives — economic, professional, personal.
The only way to evolve and adapt through a crisis is to learn. Training leaders must respond to this moment with solutions for individuals and organizations today and moving forward.
Change isn’t organizational alone. To ensure an organization and its employees evolve together, custom learning solutions are critical.
