Learning Strategy and Transformation

Build a modern learning strategy. Build your future.


Artificial intelligence. Bots. A fully remote workforce.

The way we work has a significant impact on the way we learn. Traditional operating models and learning strategies are failing to deliver a consumer-grade, empathetic, and data-driven experience that delivers on long-term organizational transformation goals while meeting short-term upskilling needs. To keep pace with business and workforce expectations, learning organizations are rethinking their learning strategy. Some 66 percent of HR executives cite upskilling among their top priorities for managing the impact of artificial intelligence and related technologies, yet only 5 percent say their HR function is fully prepared to accomplish this (63 percent feel at least reasonably prepared)1.

Developing a learning strategy takes more than implementing technology, filling out a form, or providing one-off learning sessions. Organizations that design a strategy grounded in skills of the future, employee preferences, and rich analytics can build a digitized and modernized program that takes into consideration the learning technology stack, upskilling and content priorities, and operational efficiencies to deliver a differentiated learning experience that provides a competitive advantage to attracting and retaining top talent.

In the world of increased automation, AI, and chatbots, KPMG can guide you toward building a sustainable and impactful learning and development organization.

Build a modern learning strategy. Build your future.
