Recommendation

The IT and Telecoms (ITT) sector has led the use of new learning technology by employing social media, communities of practice and virtual learning. Studies show that these learning pioneers benefited in terms of revenue and adaptability. In this report, Towards Maturity CEO Laura Overton and its head of research Genny Dixon provide well-documented insights about the business benefits of a modern learning strategy and outline concrete steps that ITT professionals can take to maximize the efficiency, flexibility and profitability of a company. Although many of the observations apply to other business sectors as well, getAbstract recommends this report especially to learning and development leaders in the ITT industry.

Summary

The environment in the IT and Telecoms (ITT) sector changes particularly fast. Employees need to adapt to new circumstances quickly, which means learning and development (L&D) professionals have to offer “flexible training solutions.” Recruiting, training and keeping people with the relevant skills are strategically important. The industry records a high number of mergers and acquisitions, and most companies have multinational workforces. L&D professionals need to “support the alignment of workplace culture and business operating models.”
