Slide 10 of 11

The future of training is bright; the average job requires more knowledge and skills than in the past, because of increased automation.  Simple jobs are now done by machines and computers, leaving more complex jobs, on average, for human employees.

The workforce is changing, and the increased diversity - racial, ethnic, and gender - is something many employees have trouble with.  They need training on how to interact.

Many organizations adopt what is referred to as a continuous learning perspective.  Here, it is not assumed that an employee is ever done learning, but rather, that they will be constantly updating their knowledge and skills to stay on the cutting edge.  How to best do this is an open issue for trainers.

Related to this is the notion of adaptability and flexibility.  The skills of today are not necessarily the skills of tomorrow, so one of the things training needs to be able to do is provide skills that are malleable, that can change as the requirements of the market changes.  We need to train people to be able to roll with the punches.

Training has become a profitable market all its own, with many companies springing up to provide training design and evaluation services to businesses all over the world.
