Future by Learning, framtidens komptensbehov!
När digitaliseringen slår igenom stort behövs nya talanger för att bemöta behoven. Hur ska dessa utvecklas? Med avstamp i en global utblick bjuder vi in till en workshop där vi gemensamt diskuterar vilka nya kompetenser och utbildningsbehov som finns för att vi snabbare och smidigare skall kunna ta klivet in i framtiden. Kompetensbehoven i våra bolag och organisationer förändras radikalt i takt med att digitaliseringen slår igenom i alla samhällssektorer. Det kommer påverka sättet vi når ut, kommunicerar, organiserar oss och förmedlar kunskap - på alla plan vi arbetar. Insikt om den digitala världen och dess möjligheter får därför allt större betydelse för konkurrenskraften hos företag och utvecklingen av samhället i stort. Välkommen att bidra till framtidens kompetensbehov! Denna workshop görs i sammarbete med Skåne Innovation Week: skaneinnovationweek.skane.com/program/furure-by-learning-framtidens-komptensbehov/
