FLAMENCO – Shaping the Collaboration Methodology
After nearly a year since the initiation of the project, FLAMENCO Partners gathered in Graz, Austria, on November 23-24, 2023, to assess the current status of the project and outline upcoming steps. Among the key topics on the agenda was the finalization of the collaboration methodology, which had been meticulously identified and agreed upon after months of collective research and discussions. In this context, FLAMENCO Partners undertook actions and decided a new structure of Working Groups within the ASA framework.
The approved collaboration methodology is intricately designed to align with the goals of the Pact for Skills initiative and will subsequently be shared with the entire Pact for Skills ecosystem.
This new structure introduces the innovative concept of “Topic Leadership.” These leaders are tasked with identifying, prioritizing, and guiding the focus of key topics within the automotive sector. This ensures that the working groups are attuned to the industry’s most pressing issues. Additionally, the concept of a “Topic Committee” has been introduced, consisting of ASA members with expertise, interest, or a stake in a particular topic identified by the Topic Leadership.
The roles and responsibilities of the Topic Committee encompass a spectrum of activities, including Topic Exploration, Discussion & Debate, Review of Working Group Proposals, Recommendations, Initiative Planning, Collaboration, Feedback Loop, and Member Engagement. Serving as gatekeepers, the Topic Committee holds the responsibility of reviewing new working group proposals, ensuring that ASA’s efforts remain focused on the most relevant and impactful areas within the automotive sector.
The four identified Topic Committees – Technology, Education, Diversity Attractiveness, and Regional – will drive the development of upcoming activities through dedicated task forces, each led by a project member. These task forces commit to providing public visibility to all outcomes.
