新年快乐 , Happy New Year, Frohes Neues Jahr

All the best wishes for Chinese New Year 2019. We wish you a year full of health, success and happiness. May all your wishes come true!

2019 is the Year of the Pig

Today, our chinese clients are celebrating the Chinese New Year of the Pig. You maybe know, there are 12 Chinese zodiac animals – they represent different years. 2019 is the year of the Pig. Zodiac signs play an important part in Chinese culture and can be used to determine the personal fortune for the year, like business success, marriage compatability, baby planning and much more.

The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. Pigs are realistic, think logically and are good in fixing problems.  They are not good communicators and can lose their temper easily. But, they work hard, are reliable and are always enthusiastic.

How to manage change in times of digitalisation

Digitalisation influences the working world today more than ever before. New company structures and services emerge, processes need to be re-thought. Change management plays a decisive role in shaping processes of change.

Implementing change processes in this digital age is especially dependant on the following two factors:

  • A functioning company culture that enables an agile approach on constantly variable change.
  • A strong management level, that lives and drives the concepts of transformation as an example.

Especially management needs to recognise, communicate and set tangible focus on the challenges that occur due to digitalisation. Companies need to become aware that digitalisation is now a normality in company strategy, organisation and culture. Without cultural change there is no digital transformation. And only people, who are concerned with their own thinking patterns and culture, can facilitate others in their behavioural- and thinking patterns, in order to promote successful transformation.
