Show Notes

In this insightful podcast, Amit Garg speaks with Maria Leggett, Director of Education, Talent Development and Credentialing at MHI on AI and the up-skilling imperative for L&D.

  • Data Interpretation challenges for L&Ds from the AI perspective.
  • Need for a universal skill taxonomy for learning development.
