App Development @ ThyssenKrupp Technology Forum

How can ThyssenKrupp master the digitalization?

In the quest for answers to this question, ThyssenKrupp gathered its top innovation managers and digital innovators at its campus in Essen with the purpose of learning and sharing insights. Thinslices was asked to conduct an App Development Workshop for ThyssenKrupp’s top innovation managers. We held two workshop sessions with the same content but different audience members. To our delight, we had the pleasure of meeting top managers with eager interest, ideas, and a hands-on mentality.

 

When we received the request from ThyssenKrupp to hold a hands-on app-development workshop at ThyssenKrupp, we were more than curious. ThyssenKrupp has a legendary tradition and its roots can be traced back to Krupp’s founding in 1811. Krupp is also known for its company culture that made employees “Kruppianers”. The latter were asked to adhere to strong ethical principles (laid in the corporate regulative from 1872) and received numerous social benefits including health insurance and a company pension.
