FernFH CEO Axel Jungwirth visited Porsche Digital GmbH together with FernFH programme director Andrea Grimm. They were received by Uwe Gross, co-initiator and Senior Manager of Smart Mobility Innovation at Porsche Digital GmbH. As a mighty driver of innovation and a flexible innovative spirit, Gross appreciates new concepts such as design thinking and is currently working on a highly innovative project in the field of smart mobility. But of course the details are top secret.
At the meeting, FernFH was discussed and the participants had intensive conversations about new approaches to innovations. It became clear that Gross is setting a high pace with his own innovation projects. He believes that important success factors include integrating customers into innovation projects at a very early stage (keyword user experience), establishing partnerships with start-ups and creating an innovation network for each project. This “think fast and big” mentality has also lead him down the path of conducting workshops for executive boards and management or planning an innovation office in Tel Aviv.
It was an exciting visit which made a lasting impression on Axel Jungwirth and Andrea Grimm and gave them plenty of ideas for taking back to FernFH. FernFH would like to say “thank you” for inviting us!
