Skillsoft and MIT Sloan Management Review partner to help train next generation of business leaders

Skillsoft has partnered with MIT Sloan Management Review (MIT SMR) to curate the journal’s leadership assets and deliver them to its 40 million users. This collaboration kicks off a series of content partnerships that Skillsoft says will empower its leadership and business skills learners with professional training from the industry’s experts.

Organisations and their employees can now access this catalogue of content to enhance professional development, upskill their workforce, and hone individual career paths. Presented through the Percipio platform, users will be able to access everything from MIT SMR’s general leadership articles, to Frontier articles that focus on the intersection of business management practice with technology, collaborative research reports, as well as webinars and videos. Content will be optimised for all devices and operating systems, and will be accessible via video, audio and written content for varied learner styles and needs.

Bill Donoghue, executive chairman of the Skillsoft group, said, “Our leadership content sets us apart from other corporate learning content providers. We provide the most diverse content catalogue with an array of learning modalities. More importantly and unique to Skillsoft, we craft thoughtful learning paths and courses for users to follow.

“Our partnership with MIT Sloan Management Review will supplement our own assets and underscore our commitment to building the most respected and up-to-date portfolio of Leadership training available.”

Skillsoft will embed MIT SMR content within its core business and video collections, and integrate content within its existing leadership offerings, like Skillsoft Leadership Advantage, Continuous Leadership Journey and Women-in-Action. The partnership between Skillsoft and MIT SMR will provide organisations with engaging, on-demand corporate learning content that will groom, train and inspire management teams through a consumer-like interface (think Netflix or Amazon) that is designed to engage the learner.

Paul Michelman at MIT SMR, commented, “We see a growing need for effective leadership training to address critical skill gaps in today’s organisations and help increase an organisation’s ability to develop talent from within.

“This partnership gives our content a new vehicle for delivery within those organisations that believe training their internal talent is paramount to creating a competitive edge.”
