Traditionally, public policy has tended to focus largely on the supply of skills. SKOPE’s work balances this with an analysis of the demand for, and use of, these skills, as well as the many different routes to competitive success that organizations are following. SKOPE’s research also examines how best skills and learning can be supplied, what other factors are necessary to maximize the benefit from higher levels of skill (for example, particular forms of work organization or investment in R & D), and what policy to adopt.
