As part of the IT-Forum Oberfranken, I hosted a panel on the future of work in the digital age. Together with four experts from both academia and practice, I discussed about our perspectives on the new work life as well as resulting chances and challenges. A video of the panel discussion can be accessed here.
In the recent episode of the kryptohelden podcast, I was interviewed by Hung Tieu on the foundations, benefits and challenges as well as use cases of the blockchain technology. The podcast can be accessed here.
In December, I gave a talk about the opportunities and challenges of the blockchain technology at the conference day of it-economics in Munich. Here you find a clip with some impressions of my talk and those of others
I have been appointed as member of the Editorial Board of MIS Quarterly Executive (MISQE). The mission of MISQE is to encourage practice-based research in information systems and to disseminate the results of that research in a manner that makes its relevance and utility readily apparent. Following the removal of the Application section of MISQ, practice-based research did not have a clear home, until Jack Rockart and a team of leading academics established the MIS Quarterly Executive journal in 2002. An official sister publication of MIS Quarterly, MISQE has been led by several editors-in-chief who are well known in our discipline as scholars dedicated to industry-relevant research—Jack Rockart, Jeanne Ross, Carol Brown, and current editor-in-chief Dorothy Leidner. MIS Quarterly Executive is published quarterly in March, June, September, and December.

Last week, I participated in the GERMAN CIO BOARD, an event organized by the consulting firm mindeight for CIOs and IT managers. In this context, I gave two talks. The first one was about my perspective on the IT organization of the future. The second one addressed the design options and archetypes of agile IT setups.
