Antecedents of Organizational Competency Development

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


One of the most important tasks of managing further education in an organizational setting is to make sure that the employees can apply the competencies developed in the business processes they are involved in. Based on qualitative interviews and a literature research we propose a number of factors which influence knowledge transfer within an organization. The influence factors are translated in an evaluation framework that is further applied in a preliminary study to assess the eligibility of the scales we used. We discuss related work in order to highlight the importance of quantifying the results of interorganizational further education and argue that the strength of our approach lies in the integrative view of competency management which takes a series of stakeholders into account. Although this paper is research in progress, the first results are promising and call for further in-depth research.
