Thirdly, attention is given to the practical conclusions deriving from different understandings of agency. The present chapter thus elaborates how these understandings relate to work-related learning, and to the development of work practices. It further discusses the implications of the different conceptualisations of agency for future research, and for the development of agentic practices at work, with attention given also to life-long career construction.
