Building on strengths instead of emphasizing the discovery of weaknesses. With this in mind, we decided to focus on our strengths using the CliftonStrengths Test from Gallup. Why did we choose this assessment? What advantages are there and how to implement them in our work? These and more questions are discussed with Dr. Christina Weigert from her perspective as a strengths trainer at Gallup
Building strengths to achieve excellent, satisfying performances. Managing weaknesses to avoid stumbling in everyday life. That's the CliftonStrenghts approach. This year, we set the goal of using it to master our tasks according to our strength profiles. Which advantages result from the orientation towards strengths? How do we deal with our weaknesses and what perspectives do they open up?
A few months ago, they joined the Transformation Engineering Team: our Tranformation Consultants Fynn and Antonia. At the beginning, our onboarding process is a central and extremely important step for this at WARGITSCH Transformation Engineers. We talked with Fynn and Antonia about their particular onboarding process and asked what exactly made it easier for them to get started.
"Never change a running system? Organization in transition." We devoted our second Transformation Talk 2023 to this exciting topic. We were moved by questions such as: Which parameters in relation to the dimension of organization must be taken into account in change processes? What is the significance of values and principles? How much self-organization can I expect from a system? And what role do collaboration, communication and transparency play?
Playing LEGO in a professional workshop? Yes, of course! Using the playful component in a strategically meaningful way results in great added value during workshops and the like. That's why five of our WARGITSCH Transformation Engineers have completed a training as LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitators in Regensburg. They can now use the visualization and creativity technique, during everyday work as well as in customer projects.
Last year, we talked about the megatrend security during one of our Transformation Talks. A complex topic with many facets, which we illustrated during our event. One interesting aspect of the megatrend security is risk perception and the psychological components behind it. In this article, we would like to dive a little deeper into the topics.
This year we are celebrating our 15th anniversary. For many years now, Alexandra Wiebe-Kaaden, Creative Director and Chapter Lead Communication Design, has been a WARGITSCH Transformation Engineer. But she didn't start in her current leadership position, of course, but as a working student. In this interview, Alex talks about her journey with WARGITSCH.
To obtain the most holistic possible approach during transformation processes in complex systems, the WARGITSCH Transformation Engineers examine the dimensions "people", "organization" and "technology". We addressed the first of these dimensions in our first Transformation Talk 2023: "The Power of People. On cultural and psychological aspects in change processes".
Even in 2023, Germany's top management continues to be male dominated: According to a 2022 study by the Allbright Foundation, there are more men named "Christian" in leadership circles of German companies than there are women in general. But how can this be changed? What are the arguments in favor of gender-diverse corporate leadership? And how do male and female leadership differ?
What should designers look out for this year in the areas of UI (User Interface) and UX (User Experience)? Creating an attractive user interface on a website or app is a core requirement for users to interact with content in the first place. Our Communication Design Chapter took a closer look at this year's UI-/UX- trends and prepared a short summary.
Since its birth, the term megatrends has been closely associated with the term transformation. This is why the WARGITSCH Transformation Engineers, together with experts from various specialist areas, highlighted important megatrends of our time as part of the Transformation Talks in 2022. In this article, we provide an overview of the topic of megatrends.
Reconciling family and job? That's possible! The WARGITSCH Transformation Engineers enable, for example, the best possible re-entry into professional life after parental leave.

In our fourth Transformation Talk with Dr. Christoph Wargitsch (CEO, host, physicist and systems theorist), Dr. Constanze Kurz (cybersecurity expert) and Peter Heilmeier (strategic consultant in the defense industry), we jointly made the perception of risk and security, the development of the megatrend and digital threats the subjects of discussion.
The digital world is in a constant state of change. Innovations and changes are part of everyday life - and graphic design is no exception. Many design elements that were fashionable just a short time ago no longer generate attention today. Our Communication Design Chapter has taken a closer look at the trends in graphic design for 2023 and prepared a short summary.
"Share your knowledge" is an important part of our corporate philosophy and therefore also part of the PRINCIPLES of WARGITSCH Transformation Engineers. In October, our Transformation Consultant, Alberto Vera Ramirez, therefore held an internal workshop on Mind Mapping and shared his knowledge based on his “ThinkBuzan”-certification with his colleagues.

We are surrounded by digital applications - in our private lives, at work, and in social contexts. But what are the consequences of these developments? And how can we use digitization to our advantage and not to our disadvantage? Starting at the end of the year, we will shed light on this topic in a blog about digital ethics as part of our think tank.
As it is often the case in life, the following guiding principle applies to colors: Less is more! Colors can emphasize, and carry meaning, as well as show structures better and increase comprehensibility. If they are used in a targeted manner, they can direct the audience's attention to the essentials. For ensuring the best possible use of color, we've collected some tips below
In which direction is the world evolving? Which effects have current developments for us and our own transformation? In the Transformation Talks, we seek answers to these questions. On February 4th, we started our Transformation Talks with a hybrid launch event. We were pleased to welcome trend researcher Tristan Horx from the Zukunftsinstitut as our speaker.
