LeadershipGarage Theme Day March 25th, 2020

With the digital transformation, managers are faced with new challenges - they have to ask themselves questions and perform tasks that did not exist in the past. Central developments are flexible forms of work, new work technologies and a growing pressure to innovate, accompanied by a growing shortage of skilled workers. In order to meet these developments, an exchange with experts and like-minded people is necessary.

During the event, experiences from the project “Digital Leadership in Medium-sized Businesses @ Digital Leadership Lab” will be shared, practical examples of digital leadership will be presented and discussed, and Vesna Maric, IBM Germany, will give an insight into the work technologies of the future.
