Guest: Prof. Dr. Rainer Thome, Professor for Intelligent Business Synergy at University of Würzburg and business man, expert and visionary in the field of digital transformation and progress.

Digital transformation and progress will change the way we work and learn in the future. While the speed of economic development increases and cycles get shorter, companies have to make sure that their employees do not lose contact. Learning-cycles  getting shorter. Moreover, people will have to bring - additionally to their working-space-specific knowledge - interdisciplinary competences. On the one hand we will need people who understand markets and processes, who understand computer science and technology. On the other hand, we need teachers and instructors who are up-to-date  and are able to lighten up the fire in people, promote curiosity and the understanding for each-other.

We talk about new forms of education - where content and information are available whenever people need it. Modern technology and voice control are opening up new opportunities. But still, one of the biggest challenge is to make people willing to use it – therefore it is essential to create a wonderful UX and eliminate friction.
