Exclusive Vlog Part 1: Developing future skills and mainstreaming innovation

Sarah Vaughan

We are proud to release the first of many exclusive digital learning vlogs that will be taking place each month with a specialised professional across multiple sectors, all with the intention of discussing digital learning in that space. This month we had the pleasure of speaking with Douglas Morrison, Director of Operations and Future Skills at Construction Scotland Innovation Centre. Our hosts, Spencer Holmes, Director at Totem Learning Ltd and Sarah Vaughan, Digital Learning Manager at Sysdoc. 

Mainstreaming innovation in the construction industry is easier said than done. A lot of factors come into consideration when trying to modernise an industry that has been so far resistant to change. There is a huge opportunity for digital and tech solutions to be adopted, and the industry is starting to wake up to the potential that change can bring. 

For many companies, it is not a goal to completely change a business model, but more so to upskill and modify its current offerings and services. Ultimately, that means building scalable solutions and supporting the new demand in skillsets to embrace those solutions.

A thought-provoking and challenging discussion will always branch off to include other insights and that is exactly what this conversation provided with Douglas Morrison. Part 2 and Part 3 will be released over the next few weeks and each will build a better understanding from a professionals perspective of what changes need to be made to embrace innovation, sustainably and effectively.
