Once again, the Chair of Industrial Management kicked off this year’s Innovation Insights Series with a compelling first lecture on May 8th, delivered by Dr. Andreas Volek, Head of Strategic Innovation Management at Diehl.

In his captivating one-hour speech, Dr. Volek explored Diehl’s approach to identifying megatrends and transforming them into innovative projects, utilizing tools such as the Diehl Trend Radar, Wild Cards, and Scenarios. He further reflected on the impact of Large Language Models on the way we work in the near future and discussed the impact of megatrends on the innovation ecosystem of Diehl. After his engaging presentation, our students enrolled in “Technology and Innovation Management,” “Industrielles Management,” and “Innovation” seized the opportunity to engage in a lively discussion with Dr. Volek.

Prof. Voigt, along with his team, expresses his gratefulness to Dr. Volek for his insightful contribution to the field of strategic innovation management. Dear Andreas, we are excited to have you join us again soon!
