Eighty percent of CEOs now believe the need for new skills is their biggest business challenge. Learning in the flow of work is a new idea, as it aligns with the industry standards and with people/stakeholders involved. While the curriculum will give you some interesting domain knowledge, there are other practical measures, more on the side of enhancing soft skills would also include Practice metacognition and mindfulness.”
