Information about our research topic 3:

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)


ZielKom: Age-structure-appropriate competence development

The project focuses on the development of skills in mixed-age teams with the aim of supporting employees throughout their working lives and maintaining their ability to work until retirement. Each of the participating project partners stands for a particular issue and contributes its specific perspective.
