What is the general idea of the pilot?

DIS (Distance soft interaction skills) tool is a self-evaluation tool for evaluating remote soft interaction skills as an individual and an organization. DIS-tool is based on theoretical and practical perspectives on valued soft skills that are evaluated in remote business and professional interaction contexts. You respond to a questionnaire where skills are categorized into 14 skill groups. The questionnaire evaluates the skills on two levels: personal and organizational. After filling in the evaluation the users get feedback that is based on the state-of-art theoretical framework. Based on the feedback given in the virtual environment, you can choose which soft interaction skills are most relevant for you in their work and gain insights, guidelines for you or for your enterprise, and links to some additional sources.

Why are we piloting it?

DIS-tool aims to develop distance soft interaction skills of individuals and distance co-creation skills of enterprises in the Baltic Sea Region -program countries. You can reflect on their skills and learn new insights as individuals and by developing these capabilities as an enterprise. The main purpose is to organize opportunities to reflect and learn about distance soft and co-creation skills as an enterprise. The skills also contribute to their human-centric innovation capabilities. The pilot users test a tool and get feedback, and the tool is further developed based on user experiences.

Why is your organisation invited to join?

DIS-tool pilot is open for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises and any business and professional organization in the Baltic Sea region. We are committed to piloting in at least three countries, Finland, Sweden, and Latvia. Firms and organizations from Norway, Lithuania, Poland, and Estonia are welcome to join the pilot. The DIS tool can be used individually. Also, learning activities to support reflection and open discussion in organizations will be available. The DIS tool and the materials are available online.
