Competencies in Career Planning

Competence-balance sheets in career planning

In a number of virtual projects the medial competence of all involved people plays an important role. However, media competence is not the only crucial factor for a successful participation in a virtual team, i.e. to manage social media tools efficiently and effectively. There are a lot of more competences that people in modern working processes have to obtain.
This way Time 2 Learn has carried out career planning in some special projects in the field of competencies. In the focus of attention there was e.g., that
a team member becomes the acting leader of the respective team
a team leader becomes acquainted with the requirements of virtual team leadership
a classical work place in the office is transfered to a home office environment
staff members are prepared for the field service on the basis of Web 2.0 tools.
