Theme: Diffusion of IS for Learning New Practices
Organizations increasingly introduce learning initiatives for continuous competence development and organisational transformation in order to stay competitive and to have competent professionals at the core of their performance. Many of the challenges for learning and competent acting are related to diffusion, adoption and implementation of various forms of IT and information systems.
Learning and change are fundamental issues to be investigated in order to keep in pace with competiveness in a way that are attractive for both the individual employee and the organization as a whole. With the theme of this conference we want to address issues related to learning new practices from the organizational and societal perspectives traditionally covered by IFIP Working Group 8.6 (Transfer and Diffusion of IS).
