„Industrial companies are facing unprecedented challenges, but also and especially opportunities, in a more and more globalized and interconnected ‘VUCA’ world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous ) that is both enabled and driven by fast-evolving new, in particular digital, technologies. I am passionate about helping companies understand these changes in the environment and build the foresight, innovation, and operational capabilities to remain or become winners. The fourth industrial revolution is in full swing – let’s shape it together!“
