Subject Knowledge sharing as both managerial and participatory approach
Context The discussion summarised below is related to the presentations in block 3 of the symposium.
Discussion Participants: Gerald Heidegger

I am obliged to say something if Barry (see contribution) talks about the German Beruf concept. The interesting thing is that despite all what has been said about flexibilisation and portfolio persons and so on, the German Beruf has not been weakened, it has been strengthened. In quantitative terms one has to be careful about that I admit but in quantitative terms it has never been as strong as nowadays. The relative number of apprentices has risen during the last few years and has surpassed 70 per cent of the cohort. We should keep that in mind.
