From our MediaRoad project, the EBU and BBC present a podcast about the transformation of the media technology environment and what it means in terms of professional journeys: jobs, skills, recruitment and training. Experts answer the question of what skills do technology professionals need to keep their media organizations relevant and competitive in the global market? These may be “hard skills” in IT-related technologies, “soft skills” like agility or transversality, as well as project-, change-, innovation- and people-management skills.
