What exactly is the 'digital skills gap?'
Lots of people talk about the 'digital skills gap', but that doesn't mean that everyone knows what it actually means! Justin and David start the session with a clear definition of it, and explain why it's a problem for so many organisations.
...And what is digital upskilling?
Well, it's not about hiring lots of data scientists. Effective digital upskilling covers everything related to understanding and managing technology and data, including the skill of learning new skills. Importantly, it's vital to ensure that leaders have the competencies to understand their organisation's digital journey and the communications around it.
Is it just about productivity?
The efficiencies enabled by digital skills remove some of the repetitive tasks from your people's workloads, so that they can concentrate on more stimulating projects that directly add value. As Justin Rix explains, as well as improving their productivity, it's also good for their wellbeing at work.
