Julia Duwe is an expert in digital leadership, ecosystem management and organizational ambidexterity. As an author (e.g. "Beidhändige Führung", Springer Gabler 2018) and blogger (www.ambidextrie.de), she deals with the question of how companies can advance their existing core business and at the same time successfully enter new digital business fields in the platform economy.
Julia Duwe studied communication studies, business administration and American studies at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz and the University of Bergen in Norway. From 2013 to 2016 she completed her doctorate at the European Business School (EBS) in Oestrich-Winkel on the role of management communication in ambidextrous technology companies.
Since January 2018 she is Head of R&D Production Platforms and Chief Agile Manager at TRUMPF Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH + Co. KG in Ditzingen. In her department, interdisciplinary development teams work on the introduction of digitally networked manufacturing solutions for the Smart Factory. These networked production solutions for Industry 4.0 require networked, cross-functional work. Therefore, the development activities are accompanied by continuous organizational development and the establishment of an agile organization.
Until 2017, Julia Duwe was Head of Future Motion Solutions Management in the Pneumatic Automation business unit at Festo in Esslingen, where she managed a digitization project for the market launch of digital pneumatics in industrial automation.
