How does the division of labour affect skill development?

 

It can also limit skill development in certain areas because workers only perform a narrow range of tasks, and may not be exposed to the full scope of the process. For example, if a worker only performs one specific task in a manufacturing process, they may not have the opportunity to develop broader problem-solving skills or to gain a deep understanding of the entire production process. Over time, this can limit their overall skill development and make it more difficult for them to adapt to new or changing job requirements.
