The digital revolution is increasing the frequency and intensity with which employees have to undergo further training and acquire new skills. Both employees and managers see this as an opportunity. To date, however, there have been no suitable training formats for this need, since traditional forms of training (such as standardized seminars, courses, and continuing education or degree programs) do not match individual competence requirements precisely enough and also react too slowly to the dynamics of change in companies.
The innovative, media-supported qualification model of the Agile learning meets this need with an action competence-oriented, media-supported learning in the work process. The model is based on insights gained in the course of research and development projects in professional practice. On this basis, an agile learning model for work process-integrated competence development was designed, which makes use of the experiences of agile project management. Its elements were further developed for in-service learning in the digital transformation. The learning form thus follows the work form and is characterized by the following principles:
- Alternating phases of learning, applying and adapting
- Common competence goals and self-organized cooperation in the team
- Iterativesprints with reflection and adjustment of learning objectives
- Learning projects from real work processes with direct application orientation
