Abstract

There has been little attempt to situate notions of competence historically or culturally and the definition of competence has not changed much once applied to different national workforce development policies. An international group of scholars examines this topic as one of the products of HRD research and practice and notes the need to recontextualize the construct of competence within social, political and cultural practices.
