Employers are increasingly facing difficulties due to the international digital skills shortage; therefore, they need to train their own people to develop and apply emerging technologies.
The demand for digital skills continues unabated, with supply outstripping demand.
- There are three types of digital skills employers seek:
- Skills that are required to develop the technology.
- "Hybrids" that combine business and technology skills.
- Basic generic digital literacy skills.
- The most in-demand skills are hybrids; these include business and systems analysts, project managers, business development, and sales and marketing.
- People are needed for digital innovation.
- Innovation is not just about making new technologies but also about coming existing technology to do different things.
- Employers are starting to focus more on a person's actual skills than on their credentials.
- Employers need to know how to assess and develop skills.
- Approaches such as work-integrated learning and micro-credentials help people transition into digital roles.
