|30.01.2021 : Reskilling
The World Economic Forum points to the fact that the times of stable life-time employments are over. Due the heavy disruptions of the New Economy 04 - speeded up by the Corono Pandemic - Production, Distribution as well as the Education Sector will have to redefine their business models in the age of digitalization. For Prof.Dr.Hallier this can be seen also by the rotation of management: while he remembers in retail and industry many leaders who stayed at least for about ten years at the top of the company - now two or three years become the normal situation. "The hectic Reskilling of the Board by new company orientation is added to the necessary Life-Long Learning for the rest of employees" Hallier concludes.
"The pattern within traditional company- and HR-structures in the last century was an accumulation of know-how over the time period: at about the age of 40 years either in private companies the next generation or in other companies a new manager-generation took over : their new know-how was executed within the next 25 years. Mostly their innovative ideas where introduced within the first five years - and the rest of time was needed to penetrate the prototypes (products/ organization) to get their impacts on a larger scale. Now the shareholders become often nervous concerning a return of investment before the real roll-out of innovation has started" Hallier claims."The result are permanent take-overs (diversifications) or outsourcing (segmentation) or mergers (like also Retail Knowledge Consortia)! Reskilling/Lifelong Learning are the necessary tools for HR to survive the Darwien Revolution of permanent quick adaption on all levels" Hallier summarizes the present situation in many companies. "Those being dropped out will be the army of affluent work-force: they will create the political danger for social revolutions - and will ask for more government-involvement to subsidize ailing companies. - Education systems should be more focused on skill-training than on the transmission of learning contents. Repeated processes will be taken over by robots and AI" Hallier concludes watching innovation-cycles already for many years.
