How the digital skills gap is killing productivity and what you can do about it!
White papers - June 26, 2014
The first wave of the digital revolution brought huge gains in productivity throughout the 1990s and the first half of the 2000s. Unfortunately, despite the promises of cloud-based and mobile technologies, the second wave has so far failed to deliver. Productivity growth rates have declined to the 1-1.5% level and businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to get more from their workforce.
This paper explains how the productivity crisis has been brought about by a growing digital skills gap as training has failed to keep pace with the rapid advance in technology, at an estimated cost of $1 trillion to the US economy. By laying out the 8 core competencies of digital skills, the paper provides a framework that can be used to develop an action plan to address the digital skills gap in your business.
