IST Institute

The Institute for Strategic Innovation and Technology Management is the competence center for innovation and strategy. Research focuses on Strategic Transformation, Corporate Entrepreneurship, Startups, Ambidextrie, Agility and Digitalization.

The Expertise of the IST Institute in various Service Formats

In view of the dynamics of globally networked markets, a good idea for a new product no longer necessarily means that a company can operate successfully on the market. If innovation in companies from the idea to the market launch is not to be random, but targeted, it must be strategically designed and secured. This strategic innovation must take place as an answer to the increasing dynamics of the markets embedded in an agile organization. 

Together with partners from industry, the IST Institute has developed expertise, best practices, methods and tools for this purpose in many years of internationally renowned research. It is our mission to bring this knowledge into the practical application of companies. Thus, we successfully support companies in strategic transition and in the implementation of innovation-oriented growth strategies.
