A quarter of respondents said their current workforce has sufficient knowledge and expertise to execute their organisation’s digital strategy – up from 16% since spring 2018. The research is based on responses from 158 digital leaders at FTSE-listed companies, large private companies and large UK public sector organisations with a combined market value of £1.38tn.
