About Hans-Jürgen

I am Chief Scientist of Kugler Maag Cie GmbH, an independent, international consulting company, specialising in the improvement of business and product development processes – from analysis, consultancy, and operative implementation to training and coaching. Most customers work in the context of emerging critical systems, such as automotive and transport. These require leading edge techniques to be deployed and organizational readiness for future challenges to be established. I have 35 years of experience in the software determined systems sector. As adjunct Professor, University of Limerick, I was Industry Director of Lero, the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre, which I helped to establish. Previously I was a lecturer at Trinity College Dublin, a director of software product and services companies, and Technical Director of the European Software Institute. I was involved in the design of means for industry-wide competence development in the automotive sector, and I conducted the first independent organizational software development capability assessment in the automotive industry in Germany. In my opinion the key competitive factor of the future will be a personal and organisational ability to embrace rapid change of the ecosystem and to proactively and continuously implement sustainable change. I have an M.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Dortmund and an M.A. of Trinity College Dublin. In 1986 I was awarded the IFIP Silver Core.

    Hallo. Blogs sind ein vielseitiges Instrument, mit dem man eine Menge spannende Sachen machen kann. Daher habe ich mich auch a priori gefreut auf der “Open Change” am 3.5.2010 von diesem Blog zu lesen.

    Bislang finde ich allerdings dass dieser Blog noch weit unter seinen Möglichkeiten bleibt. Denn wenn ich Hans-Jürgen Kugler richtig verstanden habe soll er auch die Funktion einer Plattform für die Community haben.

    In diesem Sinne hätte ich es z.B. sehr gut gefunden wenn die Kernthesen der Referenten als Blog-Beiträge hier stehen würde, vielleicht noch ergänzt um die offiziellen Folien – sofern freigegeben. Das würde Transparenz schaffen, Öffentlichkeit schaffen, und die Öffentlichkeit zu Kommentar und Diskussion der Vorträge einladen.
