Planned Obsolescence Course

Planned Obsolescence Training Tool Kit

Introducing Ecodemy’s latest course: Planned Obsolescence

Planned obsolescence is a strategy where a company makes a product obsolete by design. Planned obsolescence was created to draw consumers to purchase a new model or version of a product from the same company. The general idea behind this is to encourage sales of new products and upgrades. Manufacturers encourage planned obsolescence by deliberately making products out of cheaper and weaker materials, restricting consumers’ ability to repair their products, having restrictive software and digital locks, and refusing to share repair manuals.

This course will outline what planned obsolescence is, the typical rate that items start to fail, a brief history, perceived obsolescence, cultural, systemic, planned obsolescence and legislation we may have around these issues.

This Material Supports United Nations Sustainable Development Goals #8, #12, #14, and #15.   Invigorating sustainability impacts with talent pool training.
