NEXT:IT Episode 2 – A field report on the transformation of Audi IT
NEXT:IT is Audi IT’s response to the corporate goals that AUDI AG has set itself under the 2025 Transformation Plan. The aim is to develop and structure a future-proof Audi IT organisation that comprehensively supports both core business activities and new business models. In essence, it now places the focus on technologies instead of individual divisions. One characteristic of NEXT:IT is its agile, participative approach. For example, over 250 employees from across the Audi IT community were actively involved in structuring NEXT:IT during the design phase.
In addition to the shared values system as the basis for this transformation, a rigorous separation between structural elements and workflow-oriented processes also influences the future collaboration model.
Since the last AutomotiveIT Congress, the organizational restructuring has been completed and essential actions on the way to the Next:IT target picture have been implemented. Andrea Feuerlein and Frank Loydl share experiences that AudiIT has gained during the transformation phase and point out steps that lie ahead.
