Abstract

The paper describes a case study that presents a situated approach for detecting, analysing, and developing managerial competence inside innovative and uncertain organizational contexts. To this aim, the paper seeks to underline the importance of local knowledge production and sharing (related to professional practices and organizational culture) for competency recognition and assessment. The research question addresses the need for a context dependent driven research in order to detect and enhance real innovate and situated competences. The paper initially describes the new and innovative organizational scenario characterized by uncertainty, precariousness, rapid evolution, and progressive pressure required of organizational subjects in terms of adaptability, performativity, and orientation toward results. The second part of the paper presents the research method adopted for the inquiry and analysis of managerial situated competence to promote organizational learning and development. The third partfocuses on the situated paths used to transfer and share the produced knowledge. The paper discusses the main results,describes the prospects for using the acquired knowledge within the considered experience, and highlighting thestrengths and limitations of the considered approach. The discussion focuses on the epistemological, methodological,and process implications related to the type of research adopted.
