In today’s rapidly changing job market, employees must continuously adapt to new expertise needs, both within their specific roles and across organizational boundaries. Traditional research has often failed to capture the true nature of this constant adaptation, focusing instead on linear development and isolated adaptive responses. Our webinar explores how a Systems Dynamics perspective can reveal the intricate interplay of intra-individual and social adaptation processes that sustain employability throughout a career. Lonneke Frie and Hubert Korzilius will share findings from an extensive literature review and practical insights from HR/D professionals, leaders, and career counselors, aiming to develop a comprehensive dynamic process model of adaptive expertise, or “flexpertise”.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the limitations of traditional linear approaches to expertise development and the importance of a dynamic systems perspective.
  • Explore how intra-individual and social adaptation processes are interconnected, influence the work environment, and vice versa.
  • Learn to apply the concept of “flexpertise” to personal career development and organizational Human Capital challenges. 

Target Audience:

This webinar is designed for HR professionals, organizational leaders, career counselors, change managers, and researchers interested in employee development, career adaptability, and Systems Dynamics. It is also suitable for anyone looking to enhance their understanding of how you can renew your own expertise in a rapidly changing work environment.
