WATCH OUT, CORPORATE LEARNING, HERE COMES DISRUPTION Josh Bersin, Forbes, 28 March 2017
“The corporate training market, which is over $130 billion in size, is about to be disrupted. Companies are starting to move away from their Learning Management Systems (LMS), buy all sorts of new tools for digital learning, and rebuild a whole new infrastructure to help employees learn. And the impact of GSuite, Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Workplace by Facebook could be enormous.”
JH: Josh Bersin shows how the traditional learning technologies are being disrupted, and a new market is emerging.

JH: This is very positive step forward, and Degreed provides a platform for individuals to manage their own learning and development
