Inga Wiele, Master of Business Administration Founder, Strategy Consultant and former member of the Supervisory Board of SAP AG

Inga Wiele is founder and managing director of the company gezeitenraum gbr. gezeitenraum (engl. room of the tides) advises companies that want to actively shape the digital and social change we are currently facing.

She loves working with people and encouraging them to engage in new ways. She manages to identify and promote the different views of the parties within teams. Design Thinking thereby yields the standard for cooperation, giving structure for companies in complex innovation processes and helping them to tap into the hidden potentials of their employees. By doing so she ignites the spark that drives companies themselves to become active, to anchor new behaviour within the corporate processes and to establish new ways of thinking. She studied business administration at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University in Stuttgart. 25 years’ experience as a software consultant, as product manager at SAP and establishing her own company have taught her to understand contexts quickly and allow her to drive customer-oriented product innovation.

2011 Inga was educated as Design Thinking Coach at the of the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. She has 5 years of active project and implementation experience with the Design Thinking approach - 2 years as a product manager at SAP and for 3 years as an independent entrepreneur working with companies of different sizes and industries.
