This qualitative case study described the development of adaptive competence in older workers using a Model of Adaptability and Adaptation developed by Dr. Douglas T. Hall (2002). Few studies have focused on the development of adaptability in workers when faced with change and no studies have focused on the development of adaptability in older workers. The focus of the study was on Hall's three constructs of adaptive competence; identity exploration, response capacity and integrative potential. (Contains 4 figures.)
