"I have taken steps with my company that I should have taken 5 years ago"
Background. There is a big need to increase the digital competencies of companies in mid-regions of Sweden. These companies face major challenges in the future. Enormous changes await with digitalisation and new technologies that will impact many sectors. The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic have shown that digitalisation is a necessity in working life, regardless of sector. We see a significant increase in the demand for digital knowledge and literacy in the work force, and the responsibility for the company’s digital transformation is a joint question for both management and employees. As a counter to this, Future Position X tasked Technigo to be the learning provider, to co-ordinate, design and teach companies in mid-regions of Sweden digital competencies that will help them future-proof their businesses - packaged in a program called Bli mer digital. The education is split into two core-competence tracks that the companies choose themselves: digital product development and digital marketing. Regardless of which tracks these companies choose to deep dive into, they all had a digital project plan with basis in their new learnings to begin working with after the program. Bli mer digital was funded by the European Social Fund.

8 000 + total study hours
109 people from 80 different companies signed up to be part of the education Bli mer digital from April 2021 to June 2022. This resulted in 80 companies across the mid-region of Sweden identifying their biggest bottlenecks in terms of digitalising their products and/or services, and getting started with digitalisation projects with the help of consultants during this time frame. Example of results:
To solve the identified problem discussed above, the program Digitalisering i Praktiken/Bli mer digital was started by ESF and Future Position X. The program is divided in three phases:
Technigo was tasked with designing and executing the first two phases of this program which included:
“I’ve got a new found interest in this area. I now understand and can keep up with conversation. I have gone from being a passive bystander to joining in on discussions”
Small and middle sized businesses and their leaders are the back bone of the Swedish economy – and they all have a very busy schedule. Therefore, we designed a remote education program that would work for their calendars. A digital blended learning course á 6 hours weekly with live lectures but also the possibility to follow the course as a complete self-study online course. The participants learned from over 10 knowledgeable experts, researchers and thought-leaders within their respective fields.
