“In today's knowledge-based economy, what you earn depends on what you learn.” Words of William J. Clinton. Only the memory of the 60s of last century, when the graduates, one could count a lifetime of learning. Without having to refresh it at least 20-25 years. Today knowledge are aging faster than men. The pace is such that one does not know if a man takes his diploma from the university, should be ready for further education and training. While out of the university, things have already changed.
Pilot study of BIA shows that the rapid aging knowledge (professional competencies) professionals in the information technology sector - for about 4 years. It is followed by engineers in manufacturing (electronics, automation, mechanical) - 7 years, financial specialists and accountants - 9-10 years.
Gaps in knowledge occur mostly in conjunction with the emerging new technologies every year, regulatory changes and changes in quality standards. BIA said that renting is increasingly buying knowledge rather than working hours. Innovation is becoming much more important than mass production.
