Future Forum 2020: Curiosity as a driving force
Curiosity is a prerequisite for success – not merely in science and research but also in business and, indeed, in everyday life. To mark the tenth anniversary of the Future Forum in 2020, Fraunhofer IAO called on companies and organizations to welcome new digital developments and social trends with openness and curiosity. Held in Stuttgart’s Wagenhallen from January 30-31, the two-day forum offered a well-established mix of practical presentations, the latest research news and interactive discussion formats on the future of work. A focus on organizational issues raised the following questions: How do I get my team to stay inquisitive? How can I help employees remain open to experimentation and act in an agile way? What are the best management and organizational models for this purpose? Participants debated these and related questions from a scientific perspective and in the light of best practice examples from both home and abroad. The forum twittered under the hashtag #zufo20.
