Technology, Media & Telecommunications

“Many industries are affected by digital transformation – but only a few are digital transformation itself. This applies, in particular, to information technology, telecommunications and media.”

There is an essential difference as to whether a person reacts to a profound disruption or forms the core of this disruption itself. Every aspect of digital transformation is primarily driven by fundamental innovations in high-tech industries. Whether cloud computing and the Internet of Things, online platforms and streaming services, artificial intelligence and blockchain, 5G and smart home: it is the TMT industries that ensure that our world continues to change dramatically. Companies in these markets, therefore, have very special requirements for success.

“How do you build a stable culture within permanent disruption?”

They must act very quickly and flexibly, have an extremely large capacity for innovation and strength of implementation, an affinity for high risks and a tolerance of uncertainty and be able to effectively retain a large number of particularly talented experts. Traditional, linear and hierarchical organisational forms cannot meet this requirement. Neither can leadership philosophies and management techniques from the pre-digital era.

“Our horizon is where technology, performance and creativity meet.”

This starting position makes the task of finding a powerful team of managers and experts to offer long-term success for companies from the TMT industries particularly complex. The LAB TMT practice does not only lend its support to companies when it comes to finding the right candidates. In an industry that is the driver of disruptive developments, we help to answer the challenging question of which personalities are needed to successfully survey previously uncharted territory.
