According to Accenture’s Future Workforce Study, only 20 percent Indian leaders believe their workforce has the required skills to work with emerging technology. The vast majority of professionals expressed the need for training, with 93 percent saying it will be important to learn new skills if they are to work with intelligent technologies in the next three to five years.
