In a VUCA world, where technological advances are not just accelerating but also diversifying, the skill gap is widening at an alarming rate. A recent article by Economic Times highlights this unsettling trend, revealing that 69% of HR professionals acknowledge skill gaps in their organizations, a 14% increase from just last year. According to a McKinsey Global Institute report, automation alone is expected to displace 800 million jobs by 2030 but also create 950 million new ones. The biggest skill gaps identified are in cloud computing, data, and artificial intelligence (AI). This makes it imperative for professionals to be lifelong learners to stay relevant.
