Abstract

The turbulence caused by digitisation and focus on sustainability issues changed PSM personnel requirements. Machines are taking over processes and humans' contribution in the new era. Machines may act like humans but can only support humans in their ‘creativity’ and ‘strategic thinking’ but cannot replace humans’ soft skills in this role. Learning objectives in PSM courses in higher education are evaluated for not covering soft skills. This study presents an educational soft skills experiment that provides evidence that soft skills learning can successfully involve existing courses.
