The nature of business and the workplace is changing rapidly as a result of the revolution in digital technology. This creates new opportunities for UK businesses, consumers, charities and public bodies, but also requires a significant reconfiguration of the UK skills base. This extends from the way in which we educate young people through professional development of the workforce to the way we operate our organisations. Young people need to be able to engage with technology, not as passive consumers but able to harness it solve business and societal challenges. Developments such as cloud computing require a reconfiguration of the skills of the IT workforce, while business unit leaders need to be able to embrace new ways of working to deliver better quality services at lower cost.
