Smart Learning, accelerator of transformation and the professions of the future

The world has changed and the timeline for the future is shorter. The future is today and the need to form (upskilling and reskilling) has become urgent, and cannot be postponed. The professions of the future go through digital skills combined with soft skills. For this reason, despite having a diversity of areas of knowledge and training, offering solutions and programs in all six core areas of skills for the professions of the future, at the level of smart learning – online format and b.line (blended line, face-to-face and online) – "ISQ has created core skills, accelerators of economic development, digital transformation and "green" transition, sharing with companies the knowledge for the professions of the future", explains Margarida Segard, Director of ISQ Academy. We watched in the national digital forums and on the international web sites the question of whether "the professions of the future have changed as a result of the impact of the pandemic". It is a recurring discussion, supported by some international studies, that gets more or less the same conclusive answer. The future professions identified previously in the short and medium term remain in six key areas: 1. Automation and Programming| Coding; 2. Network, people and risk management; 3. Optimization and efficiency of processes and data; 4. Management and "green" and sustainability processes; 5. Product design and distribution| service; 6. Soft Skills or "meta skills". Digital skills including Coding and leadership skills and soft skills are in pole position and are acelarators, not only by real and urgent need, but also by transversality to all functions and professions, which imply a democratized and accessible rapid learning for all workers, managers and entrepreneurs. The world, business and life have become digital. Today we have to think, create and manage digital. The leaders aren't ready yet, the operational teams aren't ready either. And we cannot postpone all urgent technological skills and accelerators of modernization, innovation and transformation. We need Rapid Learning for core skills.
