WALTER SINN: There have been a lot of exchanges, experience sharings, on digital transformation. Mature discussions, and a lot of people obviously heavily engaged in running transformations and the experience sharing centered around issues like, how can we transform the core business and have disrupting ideas on the other side? Or questions like evolving partnerships and the growing importance of partnerships, so how to organize for those. And last [but] not least, an utmost important discussion on how to make an organization quick, adaptable, agile.
