  2. 2. Professional Obsolescence <ul><li>“ During the working years of a professional . . . a critical issue is whether or not a high level of competence and creative productivity can be maintained against the eroding effects of time. A highly trained person must constantly renew his knowledge. The goal is not merely to keep knowledge already acquired during the period of formal education. Much more than this – for past knowledge may become outdated – the aim is constantly to recharge the batteries that motivate and trigger self-renewal by keeping abreast of new knowledge that is constantly being added by research and publication. ” </li></ul><ul><li>Source: Dubin, S.
