My contribution to the supervisory board:
Digitalization is a high-impact topic of fundamental importance. The competitiveness and future security of companies increasingly depends on how well boards of directors, management and supervisory boards assume their responsibility for the sustainable economic use of digital technologies.
Digital developments and results that are suitable for the company can only be achieved through targeted leadership and strategy, controlled by the top management level, monitored and supported by control committees.” Through my experience, I can provide both the necessary “digital understanding of AR” and the right questions for the company Board and also develop suitable concepts for digital business.
