Picking Up Speed

“Fast and effective decision-making processes help a lot. Face-to-face meetings with a lot of preparation time often used to slow us down. Thanks to video conferencing, we have picked up speed in many areas – and we aim to keep it that way. What matters is the right mix of face-to-face and digital elements.”
