In a world where change is the only certainty, lifelong learning is the key megatrend. The question is how can organizations support lifelong learning? Conversations move toward the importance of learning how to learn, supporting employees in the flow of work, going back to the fundamentals through social learning, or looking past traditional degrees and to microcredentials.

Trends: microlearning, on-demand learning, cohort-based learning, learning in the flow of work, learning paths, social learning, microcredentials, self leadership, learning how to learn.

Trends: automation, digital skills focus, cross-cultural competence, remote & hybrid workplace models, artificial intelligence, power skills focus, virtual reality, augmented reality, metaverse.

As we're facing changing environments, the need for organizations to clearly identify the competencies they need, the ones they already hold through their employees, and to become more flexible and fluent in how they use them is increasing. Although now we're seeing more frequent conversations about transparent career paths and the talent marketplace, the trend of rapid teaming will also catch us as things progress.

Trends: gig economy, transparent career paths, talent marketplace, rapid teaming

We don't have the time. That's something we hear in L&D quite frequently. The solution to this problem is not more content, is not more programs, but rather a more careful personalization of what learners receive on their plate. While we have started employing methods such as coaching and content curation, these methods need to be made more scalable through the use of technology, and this is where the future is going.

Trends: coaching, content curation, adaptive learning, coaching bots
