An article on making the most of your skills for a ‘World Skills’ section mentions a joint study involving Oxford University researchers which examined what distinguished world-class vocational performers from other skilled and capable people. Susan James, associate director of Skope, the National Research Centre for Skills, Knowledge and Organisational Performance (directed by Oxford University), says the purpose of the research is to see how the findings can be used to “grow excellence, and to demonstrate the positive impact of world-class performers on their work environments, peers and wider vocational and social networks.”
