2nd Partners’ Meeting in Enschede, Netherlands
In July 2023, the second partner meeting took place at our partners at Saxion University of Applied Sciences in Enschede. We worked in different workshops on July 3rd and 4th, 2023.
In Enschede we worked intensively on our methodology “Roundabouts for digital transformation”. Like in a traffic circle, different stakeholders can gradually join the consultation process for the promotion of digital skills.
These are the results of the Enschede workshop:
- We wrote a precise description of the worker persona targeted by the counselling methodology.
- We have determined which building blocks our methodology should comprise.
- We have defined how our “Roundabouts Method” relates to other counselling theories.
- We have defined the different phases of our methodology.
