Dynamic Skills Management: Identifying Skills Requirements Early, Devising Tailored Solutions. Practical Guidance from acatech‘s Human Resources Working Group
Adopting a sustainable approach to skills management and deriving tailored future-oriented measures to meet their business needs – this is the challenge facing many companies. For some time now, job profiles and descriptions have been changing, in some cases to a significant extent, but what is new is the speed, dynamism and complexity of the changes occurring as a result of the digital transformation. Digitalisation is accelerating technical, economic and social developments in a way that is also fundamentally changing learning. It will be less and less possible to have a ready supply of the knowledge and skills that will be required in the future. Continuing education that is targeted and aligned with the specific corporate strategy of the company therefore requires an operational analysis and the definition of skills requirements.
This acatech DISCUSSION presents a dynamic approach to the analysis of skills that are currently required and will be required in the future, facilitating a reflective and iterative process. The publication is based primarily on discussions held by the HR Working Group on this topic. We see this practical guidance as a proposal to the various stakeholders
in the digital transformation. It should pave the way for future-oriented human resources management, maintain employability, and promote innovation and good working practice in Germany.
