The purpose of this study was to describe on-the job learning and to find out if 'flexible craftsmanship' is a useful measure of output for on-the-job learning. The results indicated that flexible craftsmanship is no neutral measure of output, because it takes into account only the employer's view of 'ideal employees'. A certain form of on-the-job learning (namely critical reflection) may itself serve as a more neutral measure of output for further research.
