The Double Edge of Competency Training: Contradictory Discourses and Lived Experience.
James, Pauline
Journal of Vocational Education & Training: The Vocational Aspect of Education, v53 n2 p301-24 2001
Interviews with 195 Australian training managers found that competency-based training is effective for workplace-relevant learning, organizational development, and standardization. However, it marginalizes cultural, conceptual, and tacit knowledge. Although it achieves some stakeholders' objectives, it privileges certain enterprises, workers, and forms of knowledge.
