Organizational Data Literacy

“Today, the responsibility has shifted from academic institutions to employers, where skills development programs are flourishing.”

Harvard business review

From an early age, we are taught the importance of education to our future success. We begin learning from an early age and spend our formative years immersed in the process. Then, we enter the workforce, participate, and maybe one day become successful.

As technology evolved, so has the teaching process. Over the past couple of decades, there have been many discussions on whether education is outdated and if degrees are the best way to assess skills or learning? Regardless of what the right answer is, we see many organizations adopting skills development programs. In Data Literacy, we have seen the emergence of multiple new companies to help fill this demand.

The World Economic Forum posted in their 2020 Future of Jobs Report that Active Learning and Learning Strategies will be a top skill by 2025, second only to Analytical Thinking and Innovation.

What does this mean? It means that we need more education advocates than ever, and not everyone has a degree in education.
