Target group employees over 45 and R&D engineers
A manual documents all the project experiences.
Particularly in the case of lifelong learning for older employees, this reasoning must also be combined with a change in paradigms (ageing means a transformation of abilities, rather than their diminution!). Initiating this paradigmatic change in employees and companies is one of the critical corporate and social challenges of the next decade.
The manual compiled as a result of the project "Overcoming learning obstacles - building and transferring knowledge for R&D engineers and generally for employees over 45" would not exist without the support of the LEONARDO DA VINCI action programme and the active participation of the companies involved.
Human resource development focuses on the one target group because a longer period of employment also means learning over a longer time span. Older employees are required to learn again how to learn and how to manage knowledge. The other target group contributes significantly to acceleration of innovations within a company.
In principle, the Leonardo Project Team assumes that there is great demand for solutions concerning this issue in many companies. Sooner or later, every enterprise will have to turn its attention to its older employees. Moreover, many companies today are confronted with the necessity of shortening processes and possibly also development periods.
As a consequence, the toolbox is primarily directed to companies that wish to focus on these issues. It is also intended for companies that presently wish to promote the The dictate of practice-orientation made it necessary to orient each and all of the measures, tools and procedures contained in the manual towards specific business situations during the development and implementation phases. For this purpose, the companies involved selected target groups with an especially high need in the area of "Overcoming learning obstacles - building and transferring knowledge", namely:
· Employees over 45
· Research and development engineers.
development of other target groups, in which the need for development of knowledge management competence is especially high. The toolbox contains a sufficient number of learning modules, practical materials and tips for applications, which can be adapted to the specific situation of the respective company.
