The talk reflects the paradigm shift which we all are witnessing right now. The shift from a more linear analogue way to think and act with a focus on competition and hierarchy towards a much more efficient nonlinear digital mode with the focus on collaboration and connectivity. The famous German encyclopedia "Brockhaus“ is a perfect example and visual metaphor for this transition. 200 years of history are just right now fading off the bookshelf - the publisher discontinued the print version in 2014 - replaced by the networked version of organizing the access to knowledge, like Wikipedia and Google. We see similar things happening in organizational structures and processes. The competitive "IQ-mode", measuring single people performance, will be replaced by the new "WeQ–mode“ focusing on We-Qualities encouraging a “team of teams” habit with new incentive models in education and business. Prof. Ulrich Weinberg will share some of his insights while supporting large organizations and explores why digital transformation processes always need to be accompanied by cultural change.
