My story
The digital transformation - personally
About me

I worked as a graduate teacher and IT'ler since 1993 with the learning and working with digital media. Here I developed and was responsible for various national and European Research Projects in the field of e-learning, teleworking / Tele-cooperation and the development of learning organizations.

Customer service of T-Online / T-Com and German Telekom GmbH Customer I implemented e-learning, established both learning evaluation and competency management and built the Department of Training Evaluation on as head.

since the beginning 2009 I develop digital educational products and business models as a developer, Founder and Managing Director. I advise and accompany companies in the use of digital media in human resource development and the digital transformation towards education 4.0.

Media and people

From my earliest youth I was interested in both the adventure computer and to work with people. As one of the first generations of computer kids playing and programming the computer for me were two variants, to have fun with the new medium. At the same time I inspired me as a team leader or coach to work with people in different clubs.

I continued my interest in working with people continuing in the study of occupational adult education. Parallel I worked as an independent IT and communications trainer as well as IT'ler for various departments, to evaluate data and prepare. 1991 I discovered the Internet and the opportunities. Already 1993 Both worlds were real to me for the first time together. As a freelancer of AUDI CBT Learning Center I met Computer Based Training. This type of digital training would not let me go. I started working as a writer and began to work intensively with computer-based learning and learning on the Internet. In my thesis 1995 I designed the basic structure of a learning management system, as it is often still used today. After graduation I had the opportunity, as a freelancer in various research projects around digital training, to develop teleworking and learning organization concepts and 100 to advise SMEs.

This showed, that many small and pragmatic solutions to digitization - useful implements - are worth more, as large and comprehensive projects, which are planned at the desk. This principle I follow today. 2001 I switched to T-Online / Telekom, to establish customer service as managers and supervisors eLearning, introduce, train the trainers and operate the offer and evaluate with modern training methods of analysis. In intensive field operation with up to 30.000 Users per year results in very fast, what methods and techniques to prove themselves in practice and what works in test environments. The results of my work are available in a variety of scientific and practical articles and lectures.

With these experiences and insights I make myself 2009 as a consultant and business developer independently and began, to support larger companies in the most diverse challenges of the digital training while building a cloud-based marketplace for e-learning content. This eLearning cloud has now been sold.

since the end 2015 I develop further, new, Educational products and accompany companies digitize their training and development.

Here, too, it turns out again, that we are not at the end of a series of innovations, but that the real innovation is only just emerging. With all the technological possibilities and the changing culture of the employees completely new personnel development concepts are possible and necessary. This has to be developed and tested, the sustainability of companies and employees in the field of human resource development to ensure sustainable.
