Adaptive Facilitation of Local Technology Talent and Skills
In an era where technological competence is highly sought after and needed by various industries, young talents in Indonesia must strive to have a competitive advantage. Even though learning resources are abundant because internet access is increasingly accessible to anyone and anywhere, in reality there is still a gap between knowledge and daily work practices. This gap makes many technology talents less relevant when faced with various customer problems that need to be addressed through technology.
Sociodemographic differences, lack of digital infrastructure, and barriers for Indonesian technology talent in sharing knowledge make it difficult for them to develop their talents and skills.
