Change has been a constant in business for decades; the COVID-19 pandemic, though, accelerated it and gave rise to unexpected changes—and with them, new challenges for business leaders. The notion of “business as usual” is a thing of the past.

To handle this rapid change, organizations are increasingly embracing an agile mindset. Agility is the key to becoming a more resilient organization; companies can remain fragile or become agile. And this means, among other things, discarding the old approach to learning and development (L&D) and embracing agile L&D.

This white paper discusses:

  • Why the hybrid workforce is here to stay and how it is driving the need for agility.
  • Why more companies are investing in building—not buying—skills.
  • Why HR, and learning and development in particular, must become more agile.
  • How agile companies are accelerating leadership development.
