Globalization is under scrutiny all over the world. To succeed in an adverse global environment, companies need to tap their full potential and uncover opportunities in increasingly digitized global markets. Digitization and globalization go hand in hand these days.
In this symposium, we would like to
• discuss views on and strategies for digital transformation with experts and company representatives from Germany and Japan.
• analyze the status quo of digitization in a global context.
• Illustrate opportunities and challenges of the digital transformation with a special focus on the transformation of labor and skill management.
