Microcredentials and badges can undistort demand by allowing learners to assemble their own modular learning pathways rather than requiring them to rely on bundled certificates, diplomas, or degrees curated by educational institutions

Part of the struggle is communicating the vision to the rest of the organization as you get bigger and broader, whether by geographic expansion or store openings.
My view is that the role of strategist, first and foremost, is the mobilizer. People need to understand where the company is going and take autonomous decisions. The main value of a strategist is to understand the vision for three years and mobilize the organization around the vision and what people have to do to get there.
Once you know the framework, you can make decisions to reprioritize allocations at the lowest level, because you canâ€™t have the C-Suite constantly reprioritizing every dollar.
For example, trust, customer successâ€”how do we measure them? And that cascades all the way to every single employee. Itâ€™s in the system, so you can measure it in real time.
Itâ€™s a very simple, two-by-two matrix in which you have four zones: the efficiency zone, where you put all your noncore activities that you need to be really efficient; your performance zone, which is your core businessâ€”thatâ€™s 80 percent of what you do, and itâ€™s all about execution. But you need to never forget the two other quadrants: the innovation zoneâ€”thatâ€™s your lab. It should never have more than one or two things you want to try. Then you have the transformation zone, where you put one or two things that in two years will become the performance zone. Every company needs to nurture those four quadrants at the same time, not focus on just one.
