The world is changing faster than we can.
Not only are people changing jobs more frequently, people are changing careers multiple times over the course of their working life. Estimates are that the average worker in the US changes their job at least 12 times. And they change their career 4 to 7 times along the way. That’s a lot of change!
It’s not uncommon to hear people talk about working in a field that didn’t even exist just a few years ago. From nanotechnology to AI, crypto, and seamless intergalactic hodgepodge - there’s always something new to learn. Some job changes are planned and welcomed. Others are far more disruptive. What can you do to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of knowledge and skills needed in the workplace?
The Scrum Alliance and the Business Agility Institute have teamed up to investigate the question -
Which skills are most in demand today?
After surveying the agile community and the world of work, we've analyzed the data, discovered the trends and assembled a report on agile skills in the modern workplace. Where do “agile” skills fit in? What are the top skills required by hiring managers today? What’s in your personal backlog for professional development?
And the results are clear: now more than ever, agile skills are in high demand in the workplace. For individuals, this means there is an increased demand to develop agile skills alongside technical skills. For organizations, it means there are more opportunities to have agility become an integral part of the entire business - beyond the agile roles.
Download the report now to get insights into the top skills employers look for when hiring, the rise of "pi-shaped" competencies, current skill gaps in the workforce, and how future-proofing your career may hinge on building both technical proficiency and excellent agile skills.
