Digitale Leute – Build Better Products


Smash IT — 6 management wishes

Product-Led-Growth Stage

CIO and CTO under pressure. IT is in trouble. Skilled labor is in short supply, and the old experts are retiring. Among the supervisory boards, there is still little understanding of digitization. So what is to be done?
In turns, each speaker expresses a concrete wish to mitigate the perils of lack of know-how, legacy IT and the missing ability to innovate. And we take turns commenting on the wishes of the others.
