Learning for Life

Learning for Life is an inclusive learning, education, and development initiative from SAP. Our goal is to ensure that all customers, partners, developers, and employees have the right skills to thrive with meaningful work in a digital world.  

 

The art of lifelong learning

Did you know the half-life of skills is now only 18 months? Here is a practitioner’s view on how life-long learning is replacing life-long employment.

Leading with agility, resilience, and a growth mindset

Business continuity may depend on the ability to reskill and upskill a workforce. But as companies focus on the upskilling and reskilling of their employees, it is more important than ever to include the human skills of resilience and stress management in the upskilling. A learning mindset and culture helps build an agile and resilient organization.
