While industries have the opportunities to advance technologically and e.g. improve processes and KPIs, most changes are initially very theoretical and maybe even too abstract for management to fully grasp it. The “internet of things” and “Industry 4.0” developments certainly are.

This thesis shall thus develop a concept and training program for management and employees to better understand the improvements for their particular situation and setup. We propose 2-3 core steps:

  • Discussion of the (organizational) challenges that hinder technology adaptions today
  • Development of a concept to tackle the challenges with leadership training and „hands-on“ experience This step will include research and adaption of existing approaches, e.g. Gamification methods.
  • Elaboration on and recommendation exhaustive training program.
  • Optional: Programming of a training platform based on your recommendation


We are looking forward to your application. If you have further questions, please do e-mail us.

We are interested in supporting your career long-term and may offer you a position as Associate Consultant in our firm after successfully concluding your thesis.
