When distributed teams work together, it is often difficult to know who is doing what, when, why and how. It’s time for a different approach.
Axel Wimmer from Systemdrei
Born into a family business - his grandfather produced the "Wimmer Motorcycles" in the 1920s - Axel Wimmer was confronted with business processes even as a child. Born in 1964, he experienced the complete transformation from analogue to digital. His father, who was also an inventor, was very interested in the latest technologies and had already created an ERP system for 80 employees in 1979. Also an IBM PC with 20 Mb hard disk and 64 k memory (10.000 German Marks!) was needed. It was completely useless. Axel Wimmer, who studied mechanical engineering, could immediately observe how the digital was acquired indiscriminately. He was able to see what was efficient and useful and what had greatly deteriorated the processes. After the successful sale of the company, Axel Wimmer started consulting and studied philosophy, politics and economics at the LMU in Munich. He is a specialist in the interaction of man and machine. He is critical of a completely exuberant digitalisation mania and against completely unreflected delivery to the machine. He advises companies on the interplay between strategy, structure and culture, including the use of IT. From this awareness, the software Systemdrei emerged, which delivers a very simple symbiosis of man and machine. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
