The assessment of the degree of digitization in companies from the Gabrovo region has begun
The Digital Coach project, in which the Gabrovo Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a partner, provides for the training of so-called digital coaches and an assessment of the degree of digitization in five companies from the region.
The pilot company in which such an assessment was first made is “AMK drive and control equipment” EOOD Gabrovo. The trained digital trainers – the company’s employees and external ones from the Technical University in Gabrovo, got to know in detail the processes chosen by the company and the way of their implementation. They evaluated the degree of digitization of processes according to the criteria of the ADAPTION method, developed by the Institute for Labor and Legal Sciences at the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, which is also the lead partner on the project. Experts from Germany were also involved in the work of the team – Kristina Burova-Kessler, who is also the project coordinator, as well as a digital coach from Germany who has experience with the application of the method in German enterprises.
Prior to the work of the field experts, a large percentage of workers made their assessment according to the same criteria by completing a survey. In this way, they were actively involved in the preparation of the overall final assessment.
The next stage is ahead – selection of measures to increase the degree of digitalization.
