Adaptive Learning vs Adaptive Training

Differentiating between adaptive learning and training, often confused concepts, can help to better understand the possibilities of applying new technologies to our training reality, says MBN expert contributor, Tecnatom’s Knowledge Management Manager Francisco Ruiz. 


Investing in Employee Well-Being Should Not be Novel but the Norm

Since 2020 work, personal and family dynamics have changed completely and even coexist in the same space. Given all these changes, it is no surprise that mental health and wellness have become increasingly important, both at home and in the workplace.

Asia Views Mexico as the New China

Countries in Asia are choosing to build their companies in Mexico over the US given the latter’s lack of specialized engineers and technicians, says Manuel Montoya, President of the Network of Clusters in the Automotive Industry and Director of the Automotive Cluster of Nuevo Leon. As more manufacturing comes to Mexico, the country will need to make decisive investment in supporting infrastructure.
