Competencies as abstractions of work-relevant human behaviour have
emerged as a promising concept for making human skills, knowledge
and abilities manageable and addressable. On the organizational
level, competence management uses competencies for integrating the
goal-oriented shaping of human assets into management practice.
On the operational and technical level, technologyenhanced workplace
learning uses competencies for fostering learning activities of
individual employees. It should be obvious that these two perspectives
belong together, but in practice, a common conceptualization of
the domain is needed. In this paper, we want to present such a reference
ontology that builds on existing approaches and experiences from
two case studies.
