SPOC, MOOR, And The Walking Dead; MOOC odyssey continues into uncharted waters.

Tom Hood's insight:

The speed of learning evolution continues to accelerate as MOOCs (massively open on-line courses) spawn SPOCs (small, private on-line courses) and MOORs (massively open on-line research). Add in social learning, tin can, AICC, and SCORM, we see us quickly moving to just-in-time learning to support the idea of the right talent at the right time with the right skills.

 

I think we are clearly entering the age of learning as a competitive advantage (for us as individuals and our organizations). in an age of rapid ans accelerating change and complexity, the winners will be those who can keep their L>C, their rate of learning must be greater than the rate of change and greater than their competition.

When Technoduet first published its list of MOOC Providers about six months back, there were just 26 names.  Now it has 40 and growing.

 

Not only number of MOOC providers has multiplied, MOOC themselves have diversified.  We now have SPOC, MOOR  and even a MOOC based on a popular TV series.  The maturity, diversification and popularity of MOOC are all going up.

Pipeline of Future Finance Leaders Running Dry: Global Survey - Deloitte CFO - WSJ

Tom Hood's insight:

This is a major trend and pattern we are seeing in all parts of the CPA Profession. The demand for CPAs/FInance/Accouting Professionals to add value and insight to businesses of all sizes.

 

As the Deloitte talent study says, "Talent has a big role to play in making the transition to a new model. After all, skills in areas like partnering, market value creation, project management, transformation, analytics and communications are not traditional strengths in finance and accounting. Talent may likely have to bridge the gap."

 

It confirms research quoated by Sage VP Jennifer Warawa that the # 1 reason CPAs/CFOs fail is a lcak of communication skills.

 

Add to that the recent IBM Global CEO study that says the #1 skill needed by global companies is collaboration. 

 

Our research (Business Learning Institute http://www.blionline.org) shows the Top Five Competiencies needed by Accounting/Finance Professionals for the future (out to 2025) are: 1) Leadership; 2) Communications; 3) Strategic Thinking; 4) Collaboration & Synthesis; 5) Technologically Savvy.

 

We have integrated these competencies into a career path model we call a 5 x 5 matrix - five (5) competencies by firve (5) career steps. This gives a systematic and strategic approach to your talent development. We even put it in a model we call theBounce http://cpa.tc/2qh.
