Project outline:

The study will investigate innovation and best practice in skills development in the workplace in Scotland, drawing comparisons with the rest of the UK and other countries. It aims to explore how employee-led workforce learning can be encouraged to deliver innovation that leads to competitive advantage, employment growth, and increased productivity. 

The research will further give insight into how existing knowledge is shared, used, stored, and created within organisations and aims to identify factors that underpin and contribute to successful workplace learning and innovation, determining how skills innovation within the workplace is facilitated by organisational culture and strategy. It aims to research and demonstrate how a skills agency can support innovation in the workplace as well as create recommendations, that are practical and also workable, to policy makers concerned with the skills agenda in Scotland.
