The GDOR model. A new methodology for the analysis of training needs: The case of Andorra

Marc Eguiguren Huerta, Xavier Llinàs Audet, Martí Parellada Sabata


Purpose: This article investigates the status and importance of continuing training in companies in the Principality of Andorra and its impact on the economic development of the country.

Design/methodology/approach: The analysis is based on GDOR, a methodology based on the impact of training decisions on economic indicators and ratios that has been developed by the authors. By using GDOR, the authors explore and understand the current situation and the training needs of the main sectors in the Andorran economy.

Findings: The findings incorporate a different view of lifelong learning training needs in Andorra much more related to the development needs of the country.

Originality/value: With reference to best practice from different countries, particularly those in Europe, an original and new proposal to address those training needs is presented including recommendations to the country’s authorities on how to manage lifelong learning policies.
