Block Seminar on Digital Collaboration by DATEV-CEO Dr. Robert Mayr

After the start of the new semester at Friedrich-Alexander University, several students got the opportunity to be part of the Seminar on Strategic Innovation Management at the Chair of Industrial Management in cooperation with DATEV e.G.. DATEV-CEO Dr. Robert Mayr warmly welcomed our students at the DATEV Lab where they participated a Design Thinking seminar, from April 8th to 12th. During that week, the students have gotten different insights into challenges of data protection in the age of digital collaboration at DATEV.

On April 26th, after an instructive week, and under the supervision of Dr. Robert Mayr, Daniela Hecht (Head of DATEV Lab) and Prof. Dr. Kai-Ingo Voigt, the students presented their results on how DATEV can improve its internal and external digital collaboration. In this context, the three student teams designed different solutions with a corresponding business model. The final pitch presentations strongly convinced the jury.

Prof. Dr. Voigt wants to thank Dr. Mayr and his entire team for this great opportunity. Moreover, we are happy that DATEV wrote an interesting article about our seminar ! You can check it out here.
