From McKinsey: The CEO of Guardian Life on talent in an age of digital disruption

“By rethinking its approach to talent management and introducing agile working practices, the company aims to stay a step ahead of disruptive competitors.”

From thoughtLEADERS: How important is it that training be customized for your organization?

“Beware of Customization. The vast majority of you are looking for customization of your training. While this is absolutely true of technical training related to your business processes or industry-specific skills, beware of customizing all your training.”
