We have some very exciting plans for Businessballs. Very soon we will be launching a new visual identity, refreshing the design of the site and adding lots of new functionality to enhance your learning experience and the website's usefulness. Phase 2 will include badges, learning plans linked to accredited competency frameworks, wikis (for collaborative content development) and new content from international thought leaders and academics. The site will continue to follow our ethos of free work and life learning, and the redevelopment and ongoing management will be delivered by our partner Accipio. If you are interested in contributing content or your view on where we should take Businessballs next, please email ask@businessballs.com.
