A key question that many Learning and Development professionals need to ask in this era of risks, disruptions and uncertainties is ‘if the human capital is adapting and learning in this constantly changing environment’. Competitive edge is something all companies drive towards. Earlier competitive advantage was more static and sustainable, but today the organizations need to exploit opportunities, predict trends, and evolve strategies based on these changing trends as the competitive edge has become a moving target. The new environment has put pressure on the L&D pitch to not only align the needs and strategies of individual growth but to peg them to the organizational strategy and thereby its growth. Newer methods, tools and techniques have been in the forefront to help L&D professionals align the needs of the organizations and fill in the gaps.
