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.
