Lecture by Olena Verenych (KNUCA):.

“Hiring in Distributed Teams and/or Psychological types” The world has recently become broader than we thought. Up to 50% of vacancies are related to remote work. The pandemic and the war have demonstrated that working remotely is possible. However, how do you hire an employee if you never see or won’t see them in person for an interview in the office? How can a distributed team be assembled that will work together effectively, achieve results, and be united by nothing but the invisible lines of the Internet? What are the new requirements for candidates, and how can you avoid making a mistake in choosing a team member? If you’re interested in learning about the new trends in hiring employees for distributed teams, and if you’re eager to join the discussion and collectively identify specific trends through discourse, then this is the session for you. I look forward to the lecture and hope you will enjoy it.

Lecture by Sergiy Bushuyev (KNUCA):

The existing Integrated Intelligence Model for managing innovative projects and programs have been explored by dynamic elements. New architecture includes 2 elements – fluid intelligence and crystallized intelligence. The competency-based approach is considered the basis for the creation of a Dynamic Integration Intelligence Model (DIIM) for managing innovative projects. The model is based on the extension of the system of five groups of interrelated competencies: emotional, social, cognitive, business and technical by fluid intelligence, crystallized intelligence. Fluid intelligence using like the engine in the application of DIIM. Crystallized intelligence is used as an umbrella for emotional, social, cognitive business and technical intelligence. For each group of intelligence defined key functions and competencies. The architecture Dynamic Integrated Intelligence Model is defined. For the assessment of the competencies of the innovation project management team, the IPMA Delta model was used.
