Change Management

IMAPS 3D Printing Change Management – Strategy & Consulting

What do we offer?

A successful implementation of any new technology starts with people and ends with people. Whether 3D printing is considered to have a disruptive or complementary potential, it does not change the fact that the profitable deployment in any company can only succeed if the entire organization and all relevant stakeholders – from top management to the operationally responsible employee – share a common vision.

This requires expectation management, the development of an appropriate communication strategy, and the provision of specialist training to educate the operational staff about 3D printing to ensure professional application.
The Steinbeis Consulting Center IMAPS advises and supports you in these tasks and works with you to develop a concept to make the change process that the use of 3D printing technology entails as enriching as possible for all those involved. These approaches distinguish effective change management.
