SIM X Project Zero research
On a global scale, we are facing an increased rate of change, including in the workplace. The future of work is likely to be shaped by several trends and factors, including automation, artificial intelligence, remote work, and a focus on upskilling and reskilling. These drivers of change have prompted us to rethink the very nature of work, the types of jobs that will be available, and the types of skills and capabilities that will be required from workers.
Against this landscape of rapid change, we recognised a need within the education sector for more programs that deal explicitly with the obstacles people face while experiencing multifaceted career transitions. Accordingly, these concerns brought together two institutions: 1) the Singapore Institute of Management, and 2) Project Zero of the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
After several months of discussions, we agreed to create a learning experience targeted to workers within Singapore identified as PMETs (Professional, Managerial, Executive & Technical employees). Most often, PMETs are individuals who have been working for at least several years and who have held multiple middle-management roles but who may therefore be vulnerable to structural or economic changes.
