Digitalization creates new opportunities for companies to rethink their internal processes, in production and administration, and subsequently make them more efficient and transparent.
In our third event organized in cooperation with “Maschinenraum”, a shared innovation ecosystem for SMEs by SMEs, we will look at how companies should approach this topic, which technologies can help them and how this change in processes will affect an organization as a whole.

For this event, guests Stefan Jörgens, Director R&D at Albrecht JUNG GmbH & Co.KG, and Prof. Dr Claudia Lehmann, Chair of Digital Innovation in the Service Industries at HHL, will join Dana Prahl (HHL) as interviewees.

The event language is German.

Join us and enjoy an inspirational exchange.

Digitalization: Practical Advice for SMEs
An innovative series of discussions on one of the most important challenges of the next decades: “Every company is a digital company”.

HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management sheds light on why digitalization is an imperative and how hands-on implementation can look like, especially in SMEs. In six interactive events, HHL professors together with experts from SME companies will discuss various aspects of digitalization. They will focus on the original expectations and then accumulated everyday experiences of the guest’s company and will form the basis for an open exchange with the audience. The format opens up the opportunity for conversations, questions and suggestions, and is thus intended to help advance the topic of “digital transformation and innovation” in one’s own company.
