Published in June of this year, a study by Technical University of Munich (TUM) “Skills for Digital Transformation” reveals that awareness of the importance of digital skills is greater than ever. However, a systematic approach to close the skills gap remains an exception at many companies. In fact, digital talent is threatening to become the major bottleneck of digitization in the industry. The deficit in digital skills is still among the top barriers to digital transformation. In collaboration with the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS), SAP has defined best practices as part of a maturity model for how companies can develop the skills for digital transformation. Key is a systematic skill development plan to up-skill existing roles and train for new job roles based on a learning needs analysis. It also includes activities to change the learning culture within companies towards self-directed, collaborative, and continuous learning enabled by an integrated learning management system.
