Why do I need to learn more about technology? I already use Excel and email and I can open PDF documents and navigate them with ease. What more is there to learn?
Well, the short answer is there is plenty more to learn, and it’s changing by the day. And that is why technology focused learning is a business necessity today to remain competitive.
The Ever-Changing Technology Landscape and It's Impact on Learning Plans
Of course, RPA is but one of many examples of emerging technologies that are on the precipice of changing how we work. Unfortunately, those who remain unaware of RPA and similar emerging technologies will not experience the benefits as soon as they could or perhaps should. Again, this only reinforces the need for technology education.

TRADITIONAL LEARNING OPTIONS
Another option is to engage one of the content providers discussed in the preceding paragraph to bring the training directly into your organization. The major benefits associated with this approach include: 1) the ability to customize the content to meet specific needs, 2) potentially reduced costs, and 3) the convenience of scheduling the training at a time and place that is convenient for participants.
Additionally, major technology vendors often sponsor their own conferences, which usually include substantial learning options. These options can be particularly useful if you have a specific training need that centers around a technology sold and supported by the sponsor of the conference.
SOME ALTERNATIVE LEARNING OPTIONS
Finally, don’t forget all the on-line resources that are available to you today, including something as simple as YouTube. You may be pleasantly surprised to see how much useful content is available on YouTube and similar platforms.
