Best Practice

Our best practice posts contain examples for well-implemented business models, a professional approach to problems, or intelligently packaged marketing campaigns. Both the procedure and the implementation of certain, less well-known, strategies are introduced with concrete examples. This allows companies to become familiar with the use of new methods and means, so that their own campaigns or implementation in the area of marketing or e-commerce will be just as successful.

Anyone who wants to stand out as a retailer or brand from what the rest of the competition has to offer more than just a large selection of products for customers.

But before it gets too political, let’s try today to translate a very specific recipe for success that we know from digital business into a vision of the future, »Better Schools Through Digitisation«: Personalisation.

»Made in Germany« doesn’t have the ring it used to a few years back. Manipulated cars, strange data protection laws, and a lack of innovation in federal departments and companies brought the German IT industry behind. But the perceived superiority of China and America is not inviolable. Together with Europe, we’ve got to rely on our strengths and make the »Made in Europe« label attractive. And above all that requires one thing: new confidence.
