The evolution of skills in the age of robotics and AI: Today, Mumi takes a look at the future of skills management.

In the age of robotics and artificial intelligence, it is both tempting and obvious to believe that the importance of the human being is diminishing. However, people remain undeniably at the heart of business success. In particular, skills management plays a critical role, as today's skills must be prepared for tomorrow's and the day after tomorrow's needs. These future skills must be aligned with the market needs of the future.

Future skills: An enormous effort

Without dynamic skills management, the manual effort required to identify future skills is enormous. Looking into a crystal ball is far too error-prone and leads to inaccurate results. This is especially true when considering all employees and their individual roles in the organization.

The crowning glory: context-based skills management

The crowning glory of skills management is looking at an employee's role in the context of his or her environment and industry. For example, an IT security expert at an automotive manufacturer has different requirements in different contexts. Different skills are needed on the factory floor than in application management or in the home office.

The dynamics of the role

Let's take a closer look at the IT security professional. Today, they may be focused on the security needs of production. But in the future, those needs could change dramatically. The evolution of technology, new attack vectors, and the growing importance of home offices require constant adaptation of skills and competencies.

The importance of context

The same skills and competencies required for production may not be sufficient for application management or home office. Skills management must be contextual. It must ensure that employees are prepared not only for their current role, but also for the future.

People continue to be the key to business success

While automation and AI continue to advance, people remain the key to succeeding. Dynamic and contextual skills management is essential to ensure that employees develop the right skills for their roles in the organization. The future requires not only adapting to technology. It also requires adapting to the different contexts in which technology is used.
