How to integrate skills data into your learning strategy


How to integrate skills data into your learning strategy

Thursday 4 May 2023
Seminar Theatre 2
AI, data, analytics and impact , Tools and technologies

High-demand skills are in short supply, meaning we are rapidly transitioning away from a world where you can simply “hire to grow”. As workforces age and technology rapidly shifts the scope of existing roles, how can organisations keep pace?

Wherever you are in your skills journey, there is data that can help you identify strengths and address gaps in the skills supply within your organisation. How can you leverage this data to create the reporting that helps you build a sustainable and scalable strategy?

And once you’ve mapped and understood your organisation’s skills capabilities, how do you know if your learning programs are making a difference? Can your skills and capabilities be linked to business performance?

Skills-based talent management is the hot topic on everyone’s lips in 2023. But what does it mean, and how do you turn the theory into practice? Matt Donovan, Chief Learning and Innovation Officer at GP Strategies, explores why skills have become a hot topic, sharing insights on the demands learning leaders from global organisations are seeing.

Bill Conran (Watershed) takes a look at how to turn your data into insights that can drive your skills  strategy. Bill explores how you can collect, aggregate, and sort this data in your LRS and then access the insights via your learning analytic platform. We’ll explore various perspectives on this skills data that make it easy to integrate your skills strategy into the daily business flow;  current state of play at enterprise level, skill gaps, skills alignment, and how to surface opportunities by identifying existing skill sets that may have previously gone under the radar.

In this session, you will learn:

●        Why a skills strategy matters in the rapidly evolving workplace

●        How to collate, aggregate and view your skills data

●        The types of insights a Learning Analytics platform can surface around skills analytics

●        How the business can apply these insights to drive strategy and impact business outcomes
