Again Smart Technologies, CCC, Lucia Revolution discussed on CCC Talks
It's cold the experience deficit I mean it's the term that's behaviorally recognized as as again as it is a downside of bringing so much technology as it turns out as humans for us to process something we do need time we do need reflection. We do need Social Interaction if certain changes need to occur in by Creating shortcuts through immediate delivery through technology which seems to be more efficient on the size of speed and acceleration where actually creating deficits on the behavioral side and psychologically which of the downsides of which we do not yet exactly now but we already seen it in education significantly one we're bringing students in who are digital natives people coming in who've been educated in already digital age and there are some significant again deficits in what we would consider the full human experience so. I think we are learning to be living with technology because it's not an option anymore. And but we're learning also the downsides and we need to be more proactively addressing these types of deficits in understanding the impact. That technology will have long term nauseous short-term efficiencies that the business might be looking at. I think that's very important for listeners. Think about human deficit. It grows mortgage technology to try and solve their stop. Deficit probably grows because you've unequal balance now too much technology not enough of the human the human element and a common theme that relates to this. That we've out on a lot of these These sessions he's talks is no recognition that we've gone from highly manufacturing industries into service industries which are now being or moving into the knowledge industry. That seems to be where we are in a completely different thing to say may moving from manufacturing to services required people to do differently act differently be differently and be educated differently and have different technologies. I think that's happening from the services in the street into this knowledge industry and it's not a direct shift that you immediately stop one on. Start the other one of those questions. I have for you while businesses might be recognizing vest with the work. Say That you do and and what you're teaching is. Do you think the individuals the humans themselves individuals in jobs. You think they recognize any of this. How significant this might be on them or are they unaware of it. I mean it depends you know humans a different right So it really depends. Most most of us are reactive to these types of changes. That's what creates it's creating a lot of stress because people are unprepared. It happens to them only. Then to your point they become aware I think what we need to be doing in this is where I think. A lot of focus in a mine field right. Now is trying to be predictive That area that's growing really fast. And we'll also teach on in. Our Program is workforce planning understanding of the rate of obsolescence of skills in the jobs level. We're not talking about jobs with talking. Where breaking down jobs into skills because every job can there's no I mean the category of jobs is going your way We need to understand what's involved. People a much bigger than jobs right watson all kinds of skills both soft and hard skills are needed in an we in. What's interesting about what's happening now? It's not all skills at once. Go Away we only notice how we talk about. It's kind of mechanically. They were jobs now their jobs but it's much more subtle. These in these changes that occur. Not only at the job level again. That's too that's too big. An happens overnight in nets edits reactive. But it's a gradual transition. Parts of jobs are being automated and so their environment we're going to be living in Is GonNA BE AMENDED? You know? Every job is going to be melted with technology so pretty much no one is going to be immune to these types of transitions and so where we are now because again I like to. I like my role of being on the solution side of these types of issues that are so central to the future of our society is to figure out how we can be more predictive about these types of changes happening And how we could be more proactive in creating educational pathways in learning pathways Have necessarily education with capital E. Win that they're learning in the flow work. Reskilling all of these types of things that it technology again is helping us be more efficient in acquiring a new skills entrance thing but the trick here to what you meet. Just ask is to go from reactive to proactive in. Where in asks where you know Again Smart Technologies I- analytics helping us to to make that shift if we're predict if we have predictive about it in prescriptive around educational pathways in put resources behind it a knowledge. I think we're going to eliminate a lot of pain in a lot of disruption that we're experiencing now because now and now it's happening because again we are kind of waiting until it happens in too late. It's always too late so is too late. You mentioned something that I think He said I saw about it. And we're bigger jobs. We do when I think one of the challenges that has been found. Is that a lot of people self identify with the jobs that they do. They attach a lot of. I think self worth to that job and the job that they do a now that we're in this world of absolute change. It is happening quicker faster than change of has ever happened before I think. That's impacting these in the conversations. I've been having with organizations as well. I can see that having an impact on everybody in the organization from decision makers right down to the the the lower levels in an organization that even the people that say empower are actually struggling to get to grips with. What's changing. How's it going to affect me? Never mind the rest of the staff here. So there's a bit of Cell Survival. I think For people because of the way they attach that everybody but some people will attack sell for us to the job that they do based on the role and position that the half. I think that being challenged as well at the moments That's what we might response to. This will be He. Full are attached to work. You know people are the work. Is You know oxygen food for humans. So in that's different from jobs in for as long as we understand that and how new in create opportunities for people to be engaged socially and work. That is going to be you know. That's how we need to be a reframing the whole conversation about jobs because it's not about jobs jobs are gonNA come and go We've seen in the past. Yeah Yeah So. We are hard wired to work just VIP productive to be socially connected with people in achieve outcomes. We we are you know somewhat. You know maybe competitive At some level different degrees of competitive but a lot of the whole range of human emotion is associated with work. And we talk about the dignity he'll work in and I think what's happening is if people have been trained in such a lenient way in their associated with a job that's where the that's where the fragility of this type of concept house. That's where it breaks down. You know if I'm only thinking on myself as a coal mine you know I see. I see the shelf life of that profession as very narrow very shore. Yes so and that's what you know. The politicians obviously take advantage of it. They're gonNA save you know if I want to win this population i. I'm going to put the coal miners back into the coalmine. And that's not how these types of issues need to be resolved. What you need is to give people opportunity to work. You have to find what they would be good at how they the skills this is. Where again the Union of measures skill? What other Equivalent skills that we could be. You know Draining amend of that will be relevant to the next economy and it turns out there are quite a few A few skills out there and again if you develop the ability with helpless technology etc to identify you know the kind of the strengths of people etc in develop those skills in them create work environments for them where they can be deployed. This is why when when people lose jobs we always tell them volunteer. Don't don't just isolate yourself For that job when you volunteer you actually are continuing to develop yourself in in in your participating in the flow or can you participating in society. So that's the way we need to be thinking about it. That's fantastic. That's really good. One of the things. We did a recent survey report from the CCC the Global Digital Skills Survey one of the critical findings that we got from that survey was that today are requiring are acquiring sorry requiring people are looking for people to have the ability to acquire skills acquired him quickly unusual skills as opposed to looking for people who have degrees and other types of You know career spanning knowledge or experience that seems to be moving along this trajectory in the fourth Lucia Revolution. That one of the key things are looking for is an ability for people to learn and relearn. Quickly on reapply regardless of you. You know what they've had in the past always reminds me of this phrase walk got us here will not keep us here and I think that is so relevant. Today that you're not going to get a forty year career from the degree you had twenty years ago in today's you just won't exist because the jobs are changing skill requirement. Everything's changing so fast as you said. We see a lot on these talks. A lot of 'em automation coming. True technology automating half of. Somebody's job so you've got to be able to acquire new skills and transition on change trout your career. What you think is the scale in itself that people need to have some people say it's more difficult for the older cohorts Sunday younger. I'm not convinced out. I think it's probably a human trait. Are you able to learn and relearn as opposed to how old are you on? Should younger people learn better? I don't think that that's how it works. What am I think that's part of a what's happening on that phrase what got us here will not keep us here. I think ever is ever so relevant as part of that on it you talk about this new world of work. Which is what we're in today spoken about. I'll just quote here. What we need most is a practical guide to brave. New World of work. Talent CONNECTS A to employment wherever and whenever it finds the best fit. Can you elaborate? I think that that's a fantastic phrase. We're GONNA write about that in the blog but can you explain that in a little bit more detail where we're coming from You know I. I wanted to respond to your your first question about education in learning race Because I think it's really.
