Qualifikationsanforderungen und Berufsbildung im Postfordismus
The development of skill requirements and VET constitutes a central field of hegemonic struggles under Postfordism. This development is linked to far reaching economic changes and transformations in the labour process, which lead in part to a replacement of taylorist tendencies of deskilling and strict bureaucratic control of labour through a partial reintegration of planning and execution and an alleged rehabilitation of skilled work. The postfordist understanding of skill conceptualizes the capabilities of workers as human capital which constitutes endogenous growth factors. This understanding is accompanied by an expansion, dynarnisation and subjectivation of the socially dominant concept of skills, which leads to new forms of subordination of workers under capital.
