From a vision to the initiation of your digital transformation

Digitalization. A megatrend that no company can ignore! At the same time, however, its nature is not immediately apparent to many corporate executives. Opportunities and challenges often remain diffuse, yet. Buzzwords dominate communication. Specific first steps do not seem to be worthwhile. The classical characteristics of the value added "turnover, cost structure, flexibility" are too dominant and long established practices to achieve company goals are too deeply embedded in the culture. Digitalization is revolutionizing the value added to entire industries, changing the way companies work together, creating new sales channels, and opening great efficiency potentials throughout the company. Pioneers are already achieving considerable success.

What you can expect

Lectures and interactive workshop elements will show practice-oriented approaches to transfer the abstract topic of "digitization" into your own value creation system. How does a Smart Factory work to produce faster, more flexibly and more cost-effectively? What possibilities does digitization create to redesign the interface to my customers and to make the innovation process more effective? And how can sales be increased through intelligent products and new business models? Get answers! Selected BestPractice examples illustrate possible starting points and the necessary prerequisites to pave the way for your own digital strategy.

Dates for our free introductory webinars "Smart Factory Kick-off" can be found here.
The webinar will be in German language.

Subject focus

  • Future scenarios – how digitalization changes our economic structure
  • The Smart Factory – what digitalization means to your own value added
  • Acceleration of innovation – optimization of customer journey by new customer interfaces
  • Smart products – increase sales through intelligent products and corresponding services
