    An ecosystem approach to skilling: Insights from 85 innovative programs

    8 March 2023

    Opportunities for continuous up- and reskilling should be accessible to all workers in order to maintain the competitiveness of the workforce. However, our current systems for skill building are not ready to tackle this challenge: government, academia and employers chronically underinvest in adult learning, and do not (yet) collaborate efficiently to provide at scale, end-to-end skilling solutions. In our research at the BCG Henderson Institute, we studied early examples of "skilling ecosystems”, innovative programs that involve multiple stakeholders to deliver up/reskilling solutions to address a specific skill gap. In this session we will discuss the different types of such ecosystems, key success factors and selected best practices based on our database of 85 examples around the world.
