Earlier research shows that formal training is not sufficient to help professionals find solutions to unknown problems (Eraut, 2004). The ability to navigate through uncertain times and self-regulate their work practices to ensure professional development is a key competency for finance industry practitioners. This study focuses on understanding the types of uncertainties faced by finance professionals and how uncertainty triggers learning and professional development.
