Capability Building That Works: An Automotive Company Case Study

Capability Building That Works: An Automotive Company Case Study

From product management and DevOps to cloud and API, developing in-house technical and digital capabilities is a must for modern companies. Unfortunately, many digital employee development investments have low or no ROI—they don’t achieve meaningful, sustained change in the organization.

Thankfully, a new and highly successful approach to digital talent development is emerging. Capability academies have been described as the future of corporate training and for a good reason. Typical upskilling activities are no match for the depth of learning required to thrive in a dynamic digital business landscape.

Watch this webinar to learn about the tenants of a capability academy and hear how EPAM is using the model to help clients develop technical talent and grow digital leaders at all levels. You will hear about a successful case study on developing IT senior leaders’ capabilities to lead complex digital transformation, and you will get concrete tips to implement this approach in your organization.
