The high-tech industry is becoming fully connected and digitalized, while sector traditions and disciplinary boundaries get increasingly blurred. Having led and advised many companies undergoing major changes, crises and transformations, I founded now VICOFRED to systematically address these business challenges by offering interim and transitional management solutions for companies in disruptive situations througout Europe. I love to ‘jump into cold water’ and deliver quick and sustainable results. Actually, I like it most when it’s getting ‘rough and tough’.
Being education-wise both mathematician and economist with a long-lasting theoretical focus on systems theories, modelling and simulation, it’s been always in the center of my interest to deal with dynamic complexity, co-evolution and interdisciplinarity. During my 20 years of expert and management roles alongside incredible changes and disruptions in leading high-tech industries, I have gained numerous practical proofs that clearly call for a more complexity-centered perspective in business management. I am convinced: The ‘non-linear’ causalities among increasingly connected technological, cultural, economical and societal issues can never be efficiently manageable by simplicistic-reductionist approaches and their typical disciplinary restrictions. Rather, they require a explicit complexity approach. And I mean ‘complex’, not ‘complicated’ – it’s a major difference!
Bundling all my practical experience and letting it co-evolve with my passion to learn, theorize, reflect and improve, I have just one overarching objective to reach with and for my clients:
To unveil the power of complexity!
I am a passionate cook, enjoy travelling to the very hidden spaces in Europe with my family, and try constantly to be an active political citizen … all this and more in order to assure a prosperous, liberal and exciting future for my two little sons Viktor and Frederik – the evident ‘brand essence’ of VICOFRED.
