Building a More Agile Workforce With AI Powered Learning

Technology is driving change across industries. 

Technology can be used to automate and transform the learning landscape. However, in order to achieve true transformation, organizations must improve their employees’ digital literacy, which will increase the use of intelligent technologies, increase employee productivity and improve the experiential journey.

In today’s knowledge-driven environment, clear outcome-based learning programmes must be implemented quickly and with agility. The pandemic has demonstrated that this is feasible, with most businesses upgrading their processes and providing opportunities for employee upskilling.

Most industries are undergoing transformations, and organizations are adopting technology at an unprecedented rate prior to the pandemic. There is also a need to provide all employees with a consistent workplace experience.

Significance of an Agile Workforce

Yes, an organization is only as agile as its workforce. Employees at all levels of the hierarchy, not just leaders and top managers, must be agile. And this is only possible if people feel empowered, develop multiple skill sets, are willing to take risks, and are able to experiment and innovate. In a nutshell, they must be adaptable. 

According to experts, putting the right people in the right places at the right time is not enough, especially in today’s volatile business environment. This is due to the fact that skills become obsolete in just two years. In fact, they must hire people with DNA, flexibility, and an agile mindset.

Business agility is no longer reserved for the daring few. Rapid technological change, shifting demographics, competitive markets, and other trends have necessitated the creation of new types of business structures that are designed to be adaptable. This is supported by a critical but often overlooked component: Agile Workforce Planning. 

Let’s look at some attributes of an Agile Workforce:

  1. Goal-driven 

Organizations that successfully implement agile working practices are clear about why they are doing so. It is critical to prioritize business priorities and to have clear, shared visions and goals. This assists in delivering results that are meaningful to all of your stakeholders. 

  1. Accepts new technology 

Let’s face it, few of us enjoy tedious, routine tasks. Automating labor-intensive, time-consuming operations frees your employees from these demoralizing tasks. And agile working aims to achieve just that.

  1. Flexible 

When your employees request to work flexibly, they frequently mean starting and ending earlier or later, working from home, or working a four-day week. However, in an agile culture, the term “flexible working” refers to a more radical shift in work practices. This includes making the most of the liberties afforded by new technologies in order to maximize efficiency. 

  1. Trust and learning culture 

Creating a culture of trust is critical on the path to becoming agile. Agile working relies on collaboration and trust among team members – and even external partners, some of whom may be customers – and each plays an important role.

  1. Creative

Agile businesses are innovative in their use of new solutions. Many of your clients will be transforming and reinventing themselves on a daily basis; you should do the same, encouraging radical thinking but in a structured manner, testing new ideas and concepts, implementing or discarding, and then moving on to the next. 

  1. Performance-driven 

Agile workers have a lot of freedom in terms of when and where they work; the priority is to get the best results for your company, not to work set hours in a specific location. As a result, you may need to reconsider how performance is measured.

  1. Accept change with open arms

When transitioning to agile working, you must create a culture that supports it and welcomes new ways of doing things. Most people will need to undergo a significant transformation to become agile. In order to remain responsive to customer needs, agility also provides a framework for encouraging ongoing organizational change rather than resisting it. 

  1. Data protection regulations are met 

In an agile working model, you must consider who should have access to secure data and how. Data privacy policies and guidance for anyone accessing information over a network are critical; your customers must be confident that their information is secure.

Impact of AI Powered Learning to Create an Agile Workforce

AI & ML (Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning) are terms that can have a variety of meanings. The near future indicates that this technology that has been developing for decades and has finally reached a tipping point will continue to grow. Fueled by Moore’s Law, which states that the capacity of computer chips doubles every year while the costs are cut in half, as well as new innovations such as quantum computing emerge, the continued exploration and integration of AI & ML in many workplaces is assured.

Successful businesses use technology to boost both organizational and employee performance. The business requires that new technologies be integrated more quickly. Most organizations face a risk of focusing too much on technologies and not enough on their application and integration into business processes. When processes are improved, amplified, or scaled because technology supports the business need, the organization gains real benefits. The emphasis should be on the business solution rather than the technologies.

Because of the lack of social security systems, the integration of new technologies has far-reaching implications in developing countries such as Thailand, China, and India. Jobs requiring only a high school diploma or less will almost certainly be replaced or eliminated. Although approximately 47% of US workers are at risk, approximately 70 percent of workers in Thailand and India are at risk. Human labor is more expensive than robot labor, so replacing humans with robots makes for an efficient economic strategy.

Agile Workforce x AI Powered Learning

There is no doubt that dramatic change is coming to the workplace as a result of AI integration. AI will significantly increase productivity, free people from tedious repetitive work, and improve their quality of life. The idea that AI will replace entire occupations is probably exaggerated. Certain occupation-related activities may be automated, resulting in a transformation of the entire business process. This equates to roughly two trillion dollars in annual wages in the United States. Parts of the jobs of professionals such as physicians, financial managers, CFOs, CEOs, and senior executives can be automated. According to research, nearly 45 percent of workplace activities can be automated.

Companies will be leaner and have fewer layers of management because every person between decision makers and decisions costs money. Companies will concentrate on core competencies and outsource other aspects of their operations. 

Data analysis will remain a thriving industry, fueled by “Big Data” and data science. Traditional specialists and support personnel may be contracted out. Companies will prioritize professional connections and an external support structure as the foundation for success in the digital work environment. 

“The Internet of Things” will provide direct connections between customers and suppliers. There will undoubtedly be more autonomy for the worker and this will require more training and ongoing skill development.

What the Future May Bring 

  • AI, machine learning, and augmented/virtual reality (XR) will improve education by making it more adaptive, faster at disseminating knowledge through visualization, and more entertaining for future generations of learners. 
  • Voice technology will evolve to be highly adaptive in terms of recognising various languages, dialects, and speech patterns. AI can access massive amounts of data to better understand what is being asked and combine it with individual information gathered from the device to determine who they are addressing. 
  • AI has the potential to significantly improve our current processes in terms of data integrity. As automation moves information input into the hands of those most directly involved with the transaction, AI can help to reduce or even eliminate problems.
  • AI will be at the heart of global communities, generating game-changing ideas in business, economics, and life. It may enable humanity to be more holistic in its approaches to global problems and provide a stronger approach to the overall survival of the human race.


The impact of AI in the workplace has enormous implications, with the potential to be one of the most significant technological advances in decades, and it is still far from being fully felt in our lives. However, if the business environment does not understand AI, if it is not invested in through the acquisition and implementation of technologies, and if it is not monitored and measured in terms of financial and productive gains versus the cost in the human aspects of the workforce, AI may well cause more chaos than advancement.

Being cross-functional, self-sufficient, innovative, and proactively improving are the three stages of agile teams with practical tips.

  1. What is ‘sprint’ in an agile workforce?

Scrum is an agile workflow process based on a repetitive approach. Scrum emphasizes continuous improvement in order to ensure customer satisfaction. The workflow of Scrum consists of ‘Product Backlog’, ‘Planning Sprint’, ‘Sprint Backlog’, ‘Sprint’, ‘Routine Scrum Meetings’, ‘Sprint Reviewal’ and ‘Internal Scrum Meetings’.

  1. How is AI changing the workforce?
