Why this training

Digitalization has reached numerous areas of daily life – likewise in the industrial environment. No matter whether one is supporter or opponent of this trend, it would be a tremendous risk to ignore current developments. If implemented and applied in a smart way, Digitalization provides significant potentials: working more efficiently, launching innovative data-based products and services that sustainably differentiate you from your competitors and allow developing entirely new business models. The minimum requirement of each and every company is to at least carefully investigate and evaluate opportunities offered by Digitalization – because your competitors surely will.   This workshop is designed for medium-sized companies as well as large organizations aiming to take action on Digitalization. The goal is to support participants in grasping the concepts of Digitalization and identifying suitable fields of action.
