Denkwerkstatt für Manager

Geschwill & Nieswandt


Basically, we are in a revolution right now.

A sentence that raises question marks. A statement that has many perspectives. Digitalization is changing the way we live and work. Is the digital revolution then actually a cultural revolution? Questioning and questioning is in the DNA of Denkwerkstatt. We do that a lot and with pleasure. We would like to share these thoughts, the questioning with our readers.

We find special company stories that are sources of inspiration. We present courageous managers who have already set out to move something new.

We think about the development in Germany from an industrial society to a knowledge society and ask ourselves how ready we are for this. How powerful is top management and why is measuring excellence and top performance a rather sensitive topic in this context?

Not because the state is pumping too little money into the system. It's because of bureaucracy, mental silos, misguided incentives, big egos and disconnection from the [...]

Story: Here's what you can learn from Jeff Bezos....

Amazon is a corporation that many criticize. Little noticed are the management principles that Jeff Bezos introduced and that shape the company's culture.
