    Abstract

    The purpose of my study is to evaluate projects with employee participation and to analyze the conditions for employee participation and the way in which it can be rooted in a factory. My hypothesis is that communicative actions have to be developed and supported as a precondition for the establishment of employee participation. This will propably lead to a more innovative practice, a learning organization. In this way the discussion about conditions for the establishment of participation turn in to a discussion about how to use participation to develope an innovative practice, realized in a learning organization.
