Challenges to Find Training • Majority of interviewees faced challenges with: – finding courses: “It is difficult to find courses also because there is no single platform to search within.” – gathering sufficiently detailed information on contents and course quality – finding tailored solutions aligned with team’s needs • Understanding one’s own status and demand (both as an individual and organisation) is an additional challenge: – “The difficulty is finding or understanding where the individual is in terms of his own skill-set and where he needs to develop, and then finding the resources to plug into those gaps.“
