Today’s workforce is dealing with rapid technological changes and globalization and needs to engage in continual learning, a function that traditional educational systems are not well-equipped to serve. There is a growing need for executive education and professional development providers to fill these needs by providing relevant, engaging learning experiences.

Today's Busy Professionals

Today’s professionals are holding more jobs for a shorter period of time,–the average job tenure in the U.S. is now just 4.6 years, underlining greater turnover and a rise in “second careers” and contract work. This, along with rapid organizational changes, is leading to higher demand than ever for quality training. In a recent survey, employees reported spending 4 hours a week learning, both within and outside their organizations.

Modern Learning Needs

Modern learners, and this includes learners of all ages, have adapted to the technology ubiquitous in everyday life. They use a myriad of apps and call up knowledge easily at their fingertips. They develop and nurture social relationships with others through online channels. When it comes to learning, modern learners are not only comfortable with technology–they often prefer it, because of the flexibility it offers them to learn on their own terms.

Challenges for Education Providers

Educational institutions hold a great deal of expertise, which itself is widely acknowledged. What is sometimes questioned is whether this expertise can be conveyed in a way that is relevant for professional learners. Organizations are demanding that what is learned can be directly applied in their organizational settings. This requires and adapting to each customers needs and taking an action learning approach.

Business schools need to develop capabilities to enable the learning to occur almost any time and any place, sometimes just-in-time
