Abstract [en]

Purpose of the paper: Competition gets tougher with globalization. Information and knowledge are shared like never before, putting pressure on businesses and nations to provide effective and efficient means of learning. Learning could be seen as the educational process from the user perspective. How could a perfect learning process look when based on process theory and how does reality compare with this? One option is defining a perfect process as doing the right thing based on stakeholder needs, doing it in the right way by minimising resource use and by being adaptable.

Methodology: Applying the proposed educational process on Swedish HEI educational processes indicates that the model can be used.

Findings: The results from the study indicate that Sweden seems to perform well in many areas but also that there are important areas of improvement, such as lifelong learning and the integration of sustainability into education.

Research limitations: The proposed process has only been partly tested.

Research and managerial implications: The strength of the process approach.

Originality/value of paper: Basic process theory in a new context.
