Differentiating Patterns in Work and Organizational Psychology in the Central and East European Countries
As a means of differentiation, after some words on the role of discussant, the paper presents the concept of “Civilisational competence” (Piotr Sztompka 1993; Frane Adam, 2005). As a background the paper uses four components of civilisational competence: a) work and vocational ethic; b) capacitiy and motivation for collective action and selforganisation; c) internalisation of formal-legal and bureaucratic discipline; and d) basic functional knowledge. The paper highlights furthering and detrimental aspects for Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP) from literature and experience and then looks for examples for these aspects in the presentations of this symposium before inviting the audience for discussion.
