Course Overview

Organisations and individuals are facing significant change brought about by world events, climate change and pandemics. Technology such as digitalization, artificial intelligence and automation bring forth many opportunities as well as challenges. In response, organisations are adopting new business models and strategies so as to stay relevant, survive and grow. This in turn requires workers to take on new jobs and roles such as those needed to deploy technology, drive sustainability agenda and build business continuity. This demands new skills and knowledge, and the mindset that learning needs to be agile.


Learning agility enables organisations to stay nimble operating in an environment of rapid change. It allows organisations to seek new solutions to evolving challenges involving various stakeholders including customers, employees and the community. At the individual level, learning agility enables workers to develop new skills and knowledge quickly so that they can contribute effectively and stay employed. It also enhances the ability to learn and helps workers to be resilient as they undergo transitions in their careers.
