What does it mean to catalyze change? It means introducing new tools, processes, or approaches to inspire a fundamental transformation. It means setting the right conditions to accelerate the chemistry of people and ideas that allow an organization to innovate ahead of the necessity for change. The unprecedented global events which have accelerated social, economic, and technological change now require an effort on this scale. Maintaining viability in the present environment demands a workforce that can anticipate emerging developments and quickly adapt to new kinds of work. But new kinds of work require new skills and abilities, and these take time to build or acquire. More than two-thirds of the organizations we surveyed indicated that skills gaps in their current workforce will negatively affect their ability to meet their strategic goals.
