Picture: IAD

Competence Field 3 examines the changing competencies of employees in the course of the increasing digitisation of the working world. The changes can be organization-driven, for example through different organizational design and change processes. But people as part of an organisation also influence the performance of a company with their competencies.

Exemplary topics are:

  • Competence consideration/recording (e.g. time management, self-organisation, communication competence)
  • Competence sensitisation (e.g. technology handling, change competence, data disclosure/data protection competence, health competence)



Das Projekt CyberTech zielt darauf, mithilfe neuer, durch KI geprägte Engineering-Prozesse das Arbeiten in der Produktentwicklung neu zu gestalten.
