The new global economy poses more complex challenges to workers, requiring higher levels of education, computer literacy, critical thinking, information analysis, and synthesizing skills. However, educational deficiencies have brought the world to the edge of a widening knowledge gap.
The chasm between the higher demands of a knowledge economy and the educational status of the workforce is deep and must be addressed if the organisations are to remain competitive internationally.
“Social, technological, and economic drivers are transforming education around the world. As globalization encompasses local economies like never before, the development of a skilled workforce becomes a genuinely international concern. And as human capital becomes the chief source of economic value, education and training become lifelong endeavors for the vast majority of workers.”
Peter J. Stokes, Eduventures.com, 1999
Technological changes increase complexity and velocity of work environment
Technology has changed the way we live, work, think, and learn. Today’s workforce has to process more information in a shorter amount of time. New products and services are emerging with accelerating speed. As production cycles and life spans of products continue to shorten, information and training quickly become obsolete.
Training managers feel the urgency to deliver knowledge and skills more rapidly and efficiently whenever and wherever needed. In the age of just-in-time production, just-in-time training becomes a critical element to organisational success.
