GIST Training Unit 4: Case studies
Traditionally viewed as a sector that relies on handcrafted and manufacturing processes, the furniture industry has embraced new technologies in the last years. Thus furniture companies have to keep up with the increasing technological transformation – a challenging task for organisations and requiring personnel with skills they never had before.
Under this context, GIST strengthens those key skills and competencies through the development of a novel training e-course to achieve the basic competencies for SMEs to reach the status of bionic enterprise.
LU14: Best practice examples without videos
In LU14, six different cases are presented, either of how to support companies are implementing digitalisation or how small businesses have undergone the transformation process.
LU15: Making a bionic transition
Module LU15 puts you in the role of the BT facilitator, where you need to identify the company's stakeholders and possible challenges that need to be overcome to achieve better business results through digitalisation.
Who is it for?
To help SMEs acquire the fundamental skills required to achieve this "Bionic Status," GIST creates cutting-edge training materials. It has a special emphasis on businesses in the furniture industry, a sector where the fourth industrial revolution had not yet made a significant impact.
The project's primary target audience is SMEs in the furniture and associated sectors, as well as national and regional authorities and civil society.
