In 2020, DuPont began an ambitious plan to increase digital knowledge across the company: it founded an internal training function called the Spark Digital Academy. The new program was designed not only to increase the company’s agility and effectiveness, but also to help bring digital skills to their workforce—a much-needed fix due to the persistent shortage of job seekers with both digital and disciplinary skills.
