en[AI]ble - Implementing AI in SMEs Preventively and Productively

Particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and their employees have difficulties, due to their specific conditions for action (e.g.: lack of personnel, financial, time resources and AI competencies), in recognizing meaningful AI applications for their value creation, evaluating them strategically, and designing and using them preventively, participatively and productively. According to their requirement profiles, the AI consultants that have existed to date act almost exclusively in a technology-oriented manner. A digital mentor can specifically enable managers and employees in SMEs and their works councils to close crucial (knowledge) gaps and enable AI use that is profitable for all sides.

The prerequisite for this is that, in addition to basic technical knowledge of AI, the digital mentor must above all possess competencies in holistic socio-technical work and organizational design and in social innovation in the design of an innovation-promoting, appreciative corporate culture. Since the digital mentor for preventive AI design for SMEs does not yet exist, a learning concept and a model for the use of a digital mentor are being developed and realized in learning and experimentation spaces AI in the joint project "Digital Mentor" (short title: en[Al]ble).

BMAS Good Host - Good Employer

BMAS Good Host - Good Employer

The project, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (BMAS), shows approaches to improving personnel management and increasing employer attractiveness in the hospitality industry. Currently, consulting and support services are being transferred on a nationwide level.

The INQA Company Check "Hospitality Industry" that has been developed can be the starting point for companies in the industry to identify strengths and weaknesses in their operations and uncover potential for improvement. Consultants are also to work with the instrument. To this end, a pool of consultants is being set up in collaboration with the SME Offensive.

In response to the pressing requirements that digitization brings for the industry, experience is to be gathered in the introduction of digital processes in experimental rooms. In addition to the development of a digitization check for the hospitality industry, an online survey was also conducted in Rhineland-Palatinate to highlight the state of digitization and identify further needs.
