The MESH® ACADEMY, just like the business units MESH® INHOUSE; MESH® RESEARCH and MESH® CONSULTING, is an integral part of the MESH® INSTITUTE for Advanced Competence
In the interaction of the different business areas, the founders of the MESH® INSTITUTE have set themselves the goal of taking the much-vaunted formula of “lifelong learning” seriously. The MESH® ACADEMY benefits in its constant further development and self-checking from, among other things, the ready-to-use derivations of the analyses of current research for competence measurement and development by MESH® RESEARCH, but also from the constantly expanding network of contacts of the entire company in business and science.
At the MESH® INSTITUTE we are working on overriding questions such as:
What happens when people’s learning is no longer linked to educational tasks (“education”) like it is in school? How do we deal with the fact if learning is no longer primarily oriented towards science (“truth”), as in the university?
- What does it mean when human learning – as in companies – is oriented towards external and internal markets, efficiency and effectiveness, profit and loss, in short: profitability?
- How do we deal with the fact that learning in companies as well as learning by companies in turn takes place in environments that prove to be notoriously unstable, uncertain, entangled and ambiguous in the process of the digitalisation of society?
The MESH® INSTITUTE takes the view that learning today is synonymous with the competence to successfully adapt to different social environments and to actively participate in shaping them. In the medium term, this will only succeed completely under the most realistic conditions of a professional practice.
The focus of the orientation of the entire company is therefore to build bridges between further and continuing vocational training measures outside of companies and such services that integrate the acquisition and development of vocational skills as closely as possible to the process of professional work. In the long term, we would like to contribute to the fact that companies, authorities and associations are increasingly learning to see themselves as agencies for the development of advanced competence.
