Career Exploration through Specialization with Concentrations in Business Plus Focus on Knowledge Management (KM) and Implications for Education: Secondary-Postsecondary Levels, 2001-2002.
Groff, Warren H.
Career development services from exploration to specialization in a school-based context can be enhanced greatly through a partial or intensive technological delivery system. Specialization contains both awareness and exploration, as well as concentration within it. Awareness and exploration for specialization with concentration refines career choices to pursue. Early specialization could consist of concentrations of developmentally appropriate learning units within career cluster ranges. Advanced specialization could consist of concentrations in roles within a career cluster range. It should include analysis of competencies and skills required by companies for domestic and international commerce in electronic formats. Knowledge management at the postsecondary education level and articulation with secondary specializations are the next steps. Creating a conceptual framework for organizing knowledge management content requires collaborative strategic thinking. The content could be organized into knowledge management core competencies and requirements; economy sector "learning units"; and specializations with concentrations.
