In the context of quick technological development, this qualitative research study focuses on training and development strategies in the digital age. Relying on secondary data analysis, it synthesises diverse sources such as literature, articles, websites, reports, and case studies. The research explores workforce readiness for digital transformation, emphasising key themes like adaptive learning, immersive technologies (virtual and augmented reality), and continuous learning. Uncovering challenges in accessibility, engagement, and resource allocation, the study offers valuable insights for organisations navigating the digital landscape. It provides a nuanced understanding of the shifts in workforce development, guiding practitioners with practical, data-driven recommendations. This research is valuable for organisations and practitioners aiming to equip their workforce with the essential skills for success in an ever-changing digital environment.
