As organizations seek to help their people adapt, learn and succeed for the new world of work, it has become clear that traditional career management and learning and development approaches need to evolve. Misconceptions abound: microlearning is a delivery method, not a panacea; placing content into a video-library like content engine won’t solve for content that doesn’t meet learner needs. So it isn’t surprising organizations are confused about how the various elements of learning, talent, and work technologies fit together, and therefore what to buy. BersinTM has been publishing research to explain the leading practices high performing organizations are using to embed learning in the flow of work, and we see an opportunity to apply this lens to the learning technology market.

What strikes me as I listen to these questions is that it’s not so much that we have a new puzzle to solve, it’s that the puzzle pieces we’ve had for a while are finally clicking into place.
How L&D is getting a handle on this organizational responsibility
Curation has been a buzzword in the Learning & Development (L&D) space for a few years now. With the proliferation of information, it’s getting harder and harder for employees to find valid, up-to-date, engaging content to meet their needs. Bersin by Deloitte data from its High-Impact Learning Organization study tells us that the biggest challenge employees face when they’re trying to learn isn’t the lack of content—it’s finding the right content.

The world of HR technology is about to go through one of its most disruptive times in decades. As I detail in the report “HR Technology Disruptions for 2017,” we are seeing a tremendous shift from a focus on core HR systems toward new systems that focus on “making work life better.”
