A Pinterest for learning from Accenture

Mumbai, November 14, 2017:Accenture  has launched the Accenture Future Talent Platform, an interactive learning platform that includes talent transformation services to help clients develop their IT workforces in critical areas such as digital, cloud, security and artificial intelligence.
The global professional services leader has already used the platform internally to train more than 180,000 of its people globally in the latest digital technologies – or New IT – in just over 20 months. Now, through its technology consulting and talent and organization practices, Accenture is bringing these learning capabilities to clients to help them run agile, intelligent businesses.
“With technology accelerating at a breathtaking pace, companies need to upskill their people at greater speed and scale to avoid being disrupted by competitors,” said Bhaskar Ghosh, group chief executive of Accenture Technology Services, “Accomplishing this requires creating a culture of continuous learning that empowers people to build new skills. The Accenture Future Talent Platform helps companies do exactly that through a unique, interactive experience and rich curriculum.”
The Platform integrates learning services and curriculum on as-a-service and mobile platforms to help workforces move away from traditional training and foster a culture of continuous learning. Accenture took inspiration from social collaboration trends to develop modern platforms and approaches that help clients reimagine the learning experience and their overall workforce transformation strategy—from operating models to culture to upskilling.
“The Accenture Future Talent Platform is like Pinterest for learning,” said Sanjeev Vohra, group technology officer of Accenture Technology, “Subject matter experts can create or curate learning boards using the vast amount of excellent content that already exists in the open market for a better, faster learning experience, and users can interact with each other by following, commenting and contributing to their favorite boards.”
