By Ann-Katrin Hardenberg

Everyone is talking about companies having to develop the skills of their employees for the future. This also means the development of digital competences. But what is behind it? Digital competencies can look differently in every company – depending on the industry and the use of systems. For all of them, however, it is true that on the one hand, cross-occupational digital competences are involved and, on the other hand, occupation-specific digital competences.

Does chaos stand for flexibility?

By Ann-Katrin Hardenberg

Again and again, one reads that institutions, their managers and employees need to be able to react flexibly to today’s rapidly changing environment in order to remain competitive. And this is actually what flexibility is all about. It’s the ability to move quickly and easily. The better you know yourself, the easier it is to be flexible.

The age of digitalization – why isn’t it happening in museums?

By themakedteam2

As a freelance “MAKER”, I travel – just as my colleagues – a lot professionally. While being in different cities, I always like to take time between different business meetings to visit local museums and their exhibitions. As it became usual in my generation, and also in my occupational group, I always have electronic devices with me, among others a small laptop. Digitalization is part of my daily work as well as part of my way of life and passion.
