“The automotive industry has gone through big changes since it started. Electric mobility, autonomous driving and the digitalisation of vehicles are changing whole organisations and are generating completely new qualification profiles. How are companies dealing with these changes? How do you find leaders, who actively influence this change and help you to be creative as an entrepreneur?”

In the light of technological changes taking place in full swing, the automotive industry needs new talents on every level and at all the important interfaces of automotive value networks. Electrification and digitalisation change not only the vehicle itself, but also have lasting effects on production, logistics, supplier networks, and automotive utilisation concepts.

„As a manager in the automotive industry, do I have to know Chinese?”

Especially at the higher management levels, interdisciplinary competence in engineering, electrical engineering and information technology is continuing to increase in importance. However, the competency of leaders, as well as team ability and the ability to communicate are most important during this time of change. With their different interests, clients, employees, and shareholders want to be both convinced and inspired.

The LAB Automotive Practice knows the challenges facing the automotive industry and can find the right managers, who are convincing with up-to-date leadership skills and intrinsic motivation.
