Notes on a Wall in Maschinenraum

Maschinenraum Innovation Management Circle

In our Innovation Management Circle for the first time we bring together participants with different expertise: those responsible for innovation in the core businesses and experts in validating new ideas. The exchange aims towards establishing a connection between our members and fosters discussion on challenges as well as learning experiences.

The Challenge

Secure competitiveness

German Mittelstand stands for technology and innovation leadership worldwide. However, many medium-sized companies still lack the necessary innovation competence and posses a rather low awareness of culture that secures their long-term competitive position.

The Strategy

Central innovation units

The creation of central innovation units is intended to ensure and continuously transfer technological trends, sociological change and new business models to one's own core business. Ideas should be validated accordingly and supported in their implementation.

Innovation Management Circle

Mittelstand’s requirements for innovation management are rather individual and as diverse as their organization is. The Maschinenraum invites its members to learn together and from each other.
