Integrated Perspective on Innovation: Bridging the gap between innovation management and communication management at both strategic and operational levels!
Managers deal with innovation dynamics and new ways to engage and interact with individuals within and across organizations:
Nicole is specialized in innovation communication as a dynamic capability from a strategic management view. You can read more in latest articles, ebooks and Springer publications.
What’s next? Beyond design thinking, lean & protoyping,…
Nicole had the opportunity to dive deeper into Engineering, prototyping & IT, while she was working with a research team in robotics and automation at BIBA at the University of Bremen—an applied-oriented research lab with a demonstration area—more precisely, the team developed a new hybrid, high-tech robotic system to autonomously unload containers and swap bodies using software code from EADS Space Transportation / Astrium. As for her work, that included to understand material handling, information process design and how the tech-human connection works including intelligence of systems and robots in processes in order to write up and present the business plan, coordinate internal and external communications throughout the open innovation process with involved parties, and develop real business cases for Deutsche Post, DHL and WALMART US, Exel, Metro,...
It is time to balance systems and shift from open to dynamic innovation. Nicole also did her Ph.D. (scholarship from Deutsche Post, DHL) in the international graduate school for Dynamics in Logistics and conducted several workshops with international Ph.D. students from France and other countries to discuss and learn more about dynamics in systems from a multidisciplinary perspective. It gave her the great opportunity to take on a wider view on innovation and how to balance systems beyond design thinking, engineering, and IT. Nicole developed a new organization design approach, new value chain, and focus her work on leadership communication & strategy to better create and co-create, innovate and collaborate, seize and transform, and align and re-align resources and ordinary capabilities with strategy to achieve greater impact in the world.
The way Dr. Nicole Pfeffermann approaches the topics and guide through the workshop is professional, competent and the same time really enthusiastic.
The coach did an excellent job. The workshop was really well structured. Her competence in this field as well as in other fields, her tips and insights were really valuable.
An 'open' but structured approach... I highly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in rethinking where his/her professional career, business or project is going.
