Taylor & Francis Group, one of the world’s leading academic publishing companies, partners with KNOLSKAPE to create digital awareness among its 2000-strong global workforce.
With digital technologies changing the way their audiences are consuming content, the publishing industry is undergoing a shift in the way they operate and support customer expectations. This requires publishing companies to create awareness about digital and make it relevant to the world of publishing and their business.
To support this shift, Taylor & Francis partnered with KNOLSKAPE to create awareness about digital, its trends, disruptions, and impacts on the publishing industry. The initiative, named “Destination Digital” aimed to develop a digital mindset at scale and help their employees understand digital and how it applies to their business and role.
According to Andrew Miller, Global Specialist – Organizational Coaching at Taylor & Francis, “We were clear in our requirements and we wanted a learning partner who could deliver. With KNOLSKAPE, we saw expertise in technology as well as the ability to relate to the publishing domain coming together. Their solution also included the element of gamification. It added a third layer to our need – ‘how to make learning engaging and fun’ which we didn’t find as effectively elsewhere.”
About this partnership, KNOLSKAPE Founder & CEO, Rajiv Jayaraman added, “Digital is disrupting everything and at an accelerated pace. Partnering with Taylor & Francis has allowed us to expand our portfolio of clients and extend our support to industries we’ve never worked with before. It also demonstrates the power of our digital solutions and the value it delivers to all our customers.”
The solution delivered to Taylor & Francis comprised a series of gamified quizzes focused on the digital themes of Boundaryless Organizations, Limitless Digitization, Unbounded Innovation, and Relentless Iteration.
