LEO Learning offers a look at how automotive industry training is perhaps facing more disruption than any other sector, at a time when customer expectations are being revolutionised.
If established manufacturers focus solely on their cars, they will be left behind by apps such as Uber.
If you haven’t heard the news, massive technological innovations are taking place in the automotive sector. According to a report by Capgemini , half of customers are now interested in buying a car from a technology company such as Apple or Google, with the number rising to two-thirds among young customers.
So what’s behind the shifting behaviours of automotive customers? What is the future of automotive industry training?
The automotive sector is facing rapid change and disruption
Rapid change provides immense growth opportunities for companies that embrace new ways of working and learning. The time to plan the future of automotive learning programmes is now. Key disruptors such as electric vehicles, changing consumer mindsets and autonomous cars means that it’s imperative that businesses keep up with change.
The ways in which companies position themselves to take advantage of this disruption will have a critical impact on their future.
In a new LEO Learning ebook, ‘Thriving in times of uncertainty: driving automotive industry learning forward’, we look at why organisations that make the most of digital will be more agile and have more adaptable skills – qualities that are essential to businesses during times of rapid change.
Only a third of automotive executives say their organisation has the adaptability to face digital challenges with confidence, which might sound scary. But, on the other hand, all this technological disruption in the automotive sector is a great moment for organisations to embrace the possibilities of digital technology and thrive in a volatile market.
LEO Learning’s ebook explains how organisations can future-proof themselves by giving staff the essential knowledge they need to understand what’s important to both the business and customers.
Driving change in the automotive industry
This age of transition means that everyone in the automotive industry needs to continuously learn new information at an increasingly fast pace. Yet most business executives in this sector feel the pace of change in their organisation is too sluggish. Although it’s human to be resistant to change, preparing your people to embrace it is crucial.
With electric cars, increasing reliance on technology, more and more legislation throughout Europe restricting petrol consumption, setting a strategy for how the GDPR ruling will affect EU countries.
There’s little doubt that change in the automotive sector is upon us. The best way to prepare your workers is by establishing a learning curriculum, with a growing knowledge base to support individual and organisational success through transition. With that foundation, executives will be in a stronger position to build a strategy that is adaptive and embraces the future.
