Industry 4.0 will require organizations to be adaptable and resource-efficient which can no longer be controlled centrally and from the top down. Tobias Möller-Hahlbrock assists well-known companies with personnel and executive development. He reveals how management must change and how the change of corporate culture is to succeed.

Swift access to information and sharing in networks characterize the thought patterns of Generation whY. A management rethink is required to harness this potential for innovation. Christopher Mars, an expert in change management, shows why speed and flat hierarchies—not size—will determine a firm's sustainability.


It is not size, but speed and flat hierarchies that determine sustainability. The increasing autonomy of employees forms a broad basis for innovation and is becoming a key driver of growth strategy.

In this offer, the participants deal with the management instruments that shape the new corporate culture and discuss leadership behavior in flat hierarchical organizational structures. The approaches are human-centric and enable structures in which employees are actively promoted in order to realize their ideas in a value-adding way. The contents provide answers to the questions of how to make entrepreneurial decisions in the context of Generation whY, digitalization, industry 4.0, and demographic change as well as how to implement the necessary changes in a company.

The management tools you will acquire in the workshop are those already applied in top firms: Don Limón, Google, HCL Technologies, Morning Star, Pixar Animations , W.L. Gore & Associates, Semco. You too can benefit from these in the future!

Target group: Executives and junior managers


Nicola Hemshorn
Systemic Coach, Communication Psychological Consultant, Trainer and Moderator

Digitalization wants to take us further, bring the world closer together, and simplify processes. While we can be in constant contact with people at the other end of the world, we often lose contact with ourselves and our colleagues at the next desk.

Instead of freedom and flexibility, digitization brings constant availability and increasing pressure, information overload instead of efficiency, blurred boundaries between private and working life, and distraction instead of focus.
The promised simplification, proximity, and constructive exchange, is it at first not so easy to find!

Yet nobody can imagine a return to the analogue age. Nobody wants to! Weekends in nature, yoga retreats, and temporary digital detox create breaks, but no permanent change. The offer will provide background information, insights, and thought-provoking impulses for an inner cultural change and a conscious approach to digitalization.

Founder and managing director of n3w-path GmbH, Hamburg.

In the offer "Company-Startup-Cooperations" you will learn which activities companies can promote in cooperation with startups. We will also discuss the instruments and factors that  make such cooperation exciting for both sides. With this input, you will develop an initial sketch of your ideas.


  • Which event formats (e.g. hackathon, innovation camp) will grant me access to startups? Can I learn how startups work, and how to apply them correctly to promote cultural change in my own company?
  • Which support services do start-ups need and how can such support services (startup programs) be designed by companies?
  • What is the added value of coworking spaces? What is the point of setting up a coworking space or enabling employees to work in innovation hubs?
  • What are the goals of accelerator programs or corporate venture capital?
  • In the discussion of the topics and questions listed above, critical success factors, such as the intensity of commitment, costs, strategy and risk classification, are explicitly addressed.

Target group:
This offer is aimed at project managers, team leaders, and managers from companies who would like to network more closely with start-ups to better understand how start-ups work, to find suitable cooperation/joint-ventures with start-ups, or to participate in start-ups.

The participants initially get an overview of all relevant Corporate Startup Engagement activities with concrete examples and a subsequent round of questions. In the next step, an activity is selected and a first idea sketch for their own company is drawn up. The ideas are then presented and discussed in the group. At the end of the workshop, each participant has worked out a concrete idea which he can present, refine, and implement in the company.

Thorsten Ramus is founder and managing director of n3w-path GmbH in Hamburg. He accompanies companies in the development of digital business models, corporate start-up engagement programs and holistic digitization projects.
