  • Gloria Baseli Babotana Botswana It is what Gagné refers to as "cognitive strategies" and what many cognitive scientists refer to as "domain-independent knowledge." The major kinds of generic skills include thinking skills (such as problem solving techniques), learning strategies (such as creating mnemonics to help you remember things), and metacognitive skills (such as monitoring and revising your problem solving techniques or mnemonic-creating techniques).

  • Wisdom Solomon United Kingdom The generic skills may be relatively more important, in that a job might not require so much formal training to acquire technical expertise, but still need, for example, good communication skills. But generic skills use and relevant training programmes are often found in “high-involvement” organisations, that is, organisations which set in train a raft of practices designed to maximise employee involvement in the objectives of the organization.
