Once again, the Chair of Industrial Management had the pleasure to welcome Dr. Daniel Kiel, Innovation Manager at Schaeffler and Alumini of the Chair of Prof. Voigt, for a guest lecture on the topic of innovation management at Schaeffler. Schaeffler, founded in 1982 in Herzogenaurach is an important manufacturer of rolling element bearings for automotive, aerospace, and industrial uses.

Dr. Kiel shared exciting insights in Schaeffler’s current innovation management practices such as Schaeffler’s open innovation approach, their innovation strategy, and how they use different creativity techniques to foster innovation.
