Speaker at the HSG Alumni Open Innovation Days 2021

I am pleased to be able to contribute to the HSG Alumni Open Innovation Days 2021. The hybrid event will take place from 1 - 9.6.21 and is an alumni 'homage' to the new HSG Learning Center being built at the University of St. Gallen. The learning safety culture will be the theme of my workshop, with a focus on the associated challenges for leaders. During the nine days, students, student associations, professors and HSG alumnae & alumni will offer various forms of learning, teaching or working together for everyone based in the HSG ecosystem.

At the Open Innovation Days, new ideas and formats will be implemented and tested in a kind of Pre-Lab. Students, student associations, professors as well as HSG alumnae and alumni will have various forms of joint learning, teaching and working ready to be presented during these nine days. This allows to experience and feel the HSG Learning Center even before it opens its doors. The Open Innovation Days will encourage exchange between students, faculty, staff and people from the field. A fault-tolerant environment is created, which will also shape collaboration and co-creation at the HSG Learning Center.

The "Learn-Shop" moderated by me on the June 7th is aimed at leaders in complex and risky environments and anyone who wants to learn more about what organizational safety and reliability has to do with them personally as decision makers. Highly complex systems require an interdisciplinary approach to bring risks under organizational control. In addition to safety management systems and human factor aspects, safety culture plays a critical role. It is shaped top-down and places special demands on managers.
