Vector Forum 2010: Better Testing

Vector Forum 2012: Change Management – Successfully Implement Change

The Vector Forum 2012 took place on 28. June 2012 at Vector in Stuttgart with the topic "Change Management – Successfully Implement Change". Around fourty executives from industry and experts from Vector Consulting Services met for a half-day sharing of experiences. Companies and entire industries are changing very fast at this time. Hardly any year has changed our lives with technological breakthroughs as strong as the last twelve months have done. In 2012 change will determine your daily business. So the need for change management is constantly growing. There is a simple rule: Only those who professionally control and communicate change processes will achieve sustainable results and succeed in the future.

Interesting presentations and practical discussions evolved around the questions: "How to sustainably and successfully implement changes of organizations, processes, technologies and products?" and "What can be learned from the experiences in other companies?"

Experts from BMW, Robert Bosch, Siemens, Thales and Vector Consulting Services highlighted with best-practice presentations the opportunities, challenges and results they faced with change projects in their companies, from organizational change to technologies and products up to processes, tools introductions and making engineers more efficient and effective. Participants discussed with successful companies what it takes to make change processes sustainable, starting with a strong vision, concrete improvement targets and a clear concept, good communication to get people on board, up to measuring and institutionalization.

Until late in the evening the participants discussed around a dinner on this highly relevant theme to share challenges and solutions from different industries and viewpoints.
