My company philosophy

The new broom
sweeps clean?

That alone scares employees and destroys important trust, which is so important for the success of digital change projects. For me, the idiom needs to be expanded: "The new broom sweeps clean, but the old one knows the corners".

That is why I follow an approach of development rather than "change", which reduces the implication of "replacement". It is important to me that even with radical innovations, there is usually an already existing basis on which to build. "Activate instead of amputate", as far as this is possible in the sense of the company and its employees.

Companies often do not have a transparent digital strategy. Terminology is often interpreted and applied differently, even at management level. This leads to uncertainties, blockades, demarcations, and ultimately to a standstill on the path to renewal. Our focus in customer projects is therefore in the "Creation of a common basis".Building on this, we implement our method "shaping IT-future together" which has been tested in practice several times. This approach clearly"remedies limiting influences" and designs an efficient, constructive and goal-oriented path for your digital transformation.

„Alles große in unserer Welt geschieht nur, wenn Jemand mehr tut, als er muss.“

Hermann Gmeiner, founder of the foundation SOS-Kinderdörfer

About me

I am fascinated by the possibilities of information technology. For over 30 years I have accompanied and helped shape the digital change in a wide variety of IT business areas.

Digitization and agile working are not „new discoveries“. In IT, these disciplines have always been the innovator and supporter of all business areas. Therefore, the first driving force must not be „exchange“ but „change“. Even with radical innovations, it is important to use an already existing basis that can be built upon. In addition, the human factor is always at the center of successful digital transformation.

I am also convinced that digital transformation can support the necessary sustainability issues and the path to an economically viable circular economy.

In this sense, building a close relationship with employees and taking a holistic, realistic view of customer requirements is our top priority. A coordinated integration of processes and technology is, in our opinion, the key to success.
