Competitive advantage, it is something that all companies strive to achieve. In times past, competitive advantage was static and sustainable when a company achieved a good strategy. However, the world is different now and competitive advantage is a moving target. There are risks, uncertainties, and disruptions that have made competitive advantage transient.
A company desiring a competitive advantage these days must have a strategy that evolves based on changing trends and exploits opportunities much more quickly than ever before. Competitive advantage is linked to how well your human capital adapts and learns within this changing environment.
This new strategic arena can put great pressure on learning and development within an organization to keep leaders and managers abreast of key skills and opportunities to drive innovation amongst the workforce. Because of that, if you are in the L&D arena, you should be asking yourself:
- “Does our learning & development strategy keep our organization competitive?”
- “Do we have the right information to even make that determination?”
Even if you think you have all the right answers, turning to new strategic tools helps identify areas you may not have considered and keeps you staying sharp.
