Both my Bachelor degree in Business Psychology and my Master’s programme in Business Management helped me to deepen my understanding of how critical the role of people in business is. No matter what processes and departments are involved, in the end, it is the people who are making the decisions. I therefore wholeheartedly share OMIND’s most important principle: People are the key drivers of open innovation.
In my role as a Digitalization and Change Management Consultant, I intend to connect business and psychology and provide advice on how to involve employees efficiently in transformation processes. In the course of my professional career in a wide range of industries, I have repeatedly observed that people are often forgotten during change processes, especially in the digital transformation. Instead, the focus is often on content issues such as technology. Only if all stakeholders in the digital transformation are included and only if all of them are willing to be included, can this become an opportunity. And to keep up and to be included, an open mindset is essential. That will also help us, and I am convinced of this, to move forward in all aspects of life. Furthermore, I helped to launch our ‘OpenUp2Innovate’ podcast by developing the format and providing the technical platform. Our object with the podcast is to address people directly and provide them with an opportunity to share their thoughts.
