    Digital Literacy: Building expertise in critical, everyday digital activities

    The digital skills gap is not only real, but it's broader than we have thought - it goes beyond typical IT and DevOps skills into every day digital technologies. As new technologies are adopted across all functional areas in an organization, tasks automated, and new jobs created, more and more employees must be digital literate. Yet getting there is not always easy. New hires frequently don't have all the skills needed for success, only 11% of organizations have all the digital skills needed to succeed, and 51% of organizations don't have a strategy for managing and developing skills in a digital world.
