We at Workspace are on our way in harnessing interaction to serve learning. As learning is the only sustainable source of competitive advantage for organizations and organizations learn through interaction, we find shaping the interaction very critical. In addition to improving learning, interactional culture is the key for improving cognitive performance and problem solving in human dependent systems.
One of our recent developments in this area is our research project of building a capability for measuring human interaction and quantifying any organizations’ interactional culture. The research project is carried out in co-operation with Jyväskylä University. The aim is to create a deep level understanding on how organizational interaction can be enhanced.
This new service uses personal sociometric sensoring technology based on MIT’s (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) study on communication and organizational behavior. In addition, the system will use data from a variety of sources such as environmental sensors, virtual communication tools, questionnaires (self-reported productivity, creativity, sense of stress, satisfaction) and biometric sensors (measured stress levels).
Hardware and algorithm for the system will be ready by January 2020 followed by a three-month testing period. Testing will be done with the help of 40 people from two different organizations. Analysing the test results and finalizing the algorithm will be done by summer. The new service will be ready by August 2020. We are now looking for first pilot customers.
We are looking forward to exploring your interaction together with you!
