Research

In her research Andrea Kindermann focuses on the digital transformation of established companies:

Where are the limits of the transformability of specific organisations as complex systems and "non-trivial machines"? Which transformational opportunities and limits can be identified to develop promising digitisation strategies? The aim is to develop a system of analysis and strategy tools that enable managers to assess the individual transformation capacity of their company and to identify and evaluate the activity areas on offer.

Digitised marketing will include not only the automation of standard processes, but also of complete assignments. What does this automation of marketing activities and interaction mean for the marketing management and the job profile of employees?  With which organisational models can marketing managers meet the requirements for profitability, speed and quality?
