Continuous Competence Development: MATURE @ Professional Training Facts 2009
MATURE organized a track at this year's edition of the Professional Training Facts conference, which is an "industry meets science" event targeted at "learning - competence - performance". The MATURE track was about continuous competence development, focussing on one of the main aspects of MATURE: the continuity of learning in organizations.
- Andreas Schmidt from FZI briefly introduced the notion of knowledge maturing and the general MATURE theme.
- Michael Wyrsch from Credit Suisse presented the introduction of a lessons learned process at Credit Suisse as an example for successful knowledge maturing (focussed on content artefacts) in companies.
- Uwe Riss from SAP presented the approach of bringing together task management and process management.
- Simone Braun from FZI presented the people tagging approach as a bottom-up alternative (or complement) to traditional competence management approaches.
In a subsequent experience exchange session (moderated by Christine Kunzmann from FZI), the audience and the presenters collected their experiences with barriers to knowledge maturing, which provided a very rich picture of the various motivational problems:
Furthemore, MATURE had the most colourful booth in the collocated exhibition area with many interesting discussions and demonstrations.
