Speed and agility matter.
Businesses are being disrupted every day by digital upstarts that find ways to address new market requirements before the more established companies can respond.
Despite talented IT teams and years of head start in both architectural and development work, it is still difficult to respond to these challenges using traditional development patterns centered around monolithic software applications. It’s simply impossible to get to market quickly when applications need to be maintained, modified and scaled as a single entity by a large, heavily inter-dependent team.
From this need has arisen the microservices paradigm: a set of patterns for software architecture, development, deployment and culture that focus on speed and agility. From small, independent services and teams to automated deployment to fault tolerance and resiliency, these patterns help accelerate time to market.
The role of learning and development has never been more important to the success of small and medium businesses, especially because of the fierce competition with big business to attract and retain top talent.
We’re amidst a disruption in the way employees work and learn. Technology, skills, and workforce demographics are shifting and evolving at a rapid pace. Employees are now sitting in the driver’s seat when it comes to their career path and companies are getting strategic with how to meet this new demand.
Read our guide “The Rise of the Holistic Learning Experience” to learn how the new role of learning and development can help your company thrive.
You’ll gain insights on:
• Consumer-driven technology changing the game
• Continuous learning and staying relevant amid change
• The holistic learner experience

Manufacturing is on the move. Leading companies are relocating near supply and demand, as well as the best talent. They’re digitizing operations to automate critical processes and enable crowdsharing. Manufacturers are building innovation hubs to accelerate R&D. They’re wooing – and retaining – talent with continuous knowledge sharing and professional development opportunities. And they’re using an array of technologies to capture and leverage the insights and skills of their best thinkers: industry visionaries, emerging technology experts, and process reengineers. Manufacturers are doing this quietly and consistently. To take aim at the target of market leadership, it pays to draw closer – and then closer still. Are you ready?

Build or buy? When manufacturers have sought new leaders, they have typically done both: grooming talent in-house and paying market rates for the best thinkers and managers.
With the growing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) shortage, companies will be harder-pressed to buy – and keep – top technical talent. Emerging and established leaders will command premium prices and field continual offers, increasing the likelihood they’ll make frequent job changes, taking their industry and institutional knowledge with them. As a consequence, manufacturers will need to build their talent pipeline, empower knowledge workers with the tools and intelligence they need to succeed, and provide professional development opportunities that exceed what competitors offer.
This will be a marathon, not a sprint. What’s key to making the race for talent successful: virtual training environments that accelerate learning and innovation.
On average, one-third of employees that have been with a company less than six months are already searching for new job. To retain top talent, a robust new hire onboarding process is crucial.
