Future of SMPs: Building Digital Competency
Thursday, 15 October, 14:00 CET
Key topic is the importance of digitalization for SMPs, all the more vital as a result of the pandemic, and how EFAA’s Digital Competency Maturity Model (DCMM) can be used to help SMPs raise their digital competency. The webinar shares initial results, as reported in this recent report on the use of the DCMM, and goes on to discuss what we can learn from these results. The audience is invited to contribute ideas on how best to further promote and develop the DCMM.
