Extra-condensed knowledge

Worker training is a necessity these days, but for many technology managers and professionals, there's just of a pressing need to train upward in the ranks. 
  • Digital or technology savvy is not a top requirement for executive or board-level jobs, a recent study published in Harvard Business Review finds. 
  • The top skills needed in the C-suite include design thinking, artificial intelligence, data science, machine learning techniques, cybersecurity, and DevOps, a 2019 study from Gartner found.
  • With the rise of the digital economy, "the demand for digital savviness in the upper echelons of leadership has grown far more quickly than the supply," another recent study published in MIT Sloan Management Review confirms. 
    • The analysis of almost 2,000 large companies find only seven percent have digitally savvy executive teams. 
    • Even more surprising, only 47% of CTOs and 45% of CIOs could be considered "digitally savvy." 
    • This percentage drops to 24% for COOs and 23% of CEOs. 
    • Only 12% of CFOs were up to speed digitally.
