Why It Matters: The modern workplace is undergoing a dramatic and rapid transformation, and nowhere is this more apparent than in technology and software development. Cross-functional product teams are the rule, not the exception, the boundaries between areas of expertise are blurring, and the need for broad technical proficiency is at a premium. Maintaining proficiency requires continuous adaptability and learning of new hard skills, behavioral skills, people (aka soft) skills, and situational awareness, all while continuing to complete one’s day-to-day tasks. Thus, there is a strong need for engaging, scalable, cost-effective, and learning science-based training content designed for today’s technology professionals.
