The automotive industry is in a markedly dynamic phase at present. Digitalisation, autonomous driving and new propulsion technologies are defining competition and are changing the vehicle market. In addition customers’ behaviour is in a state of flux and regulation is being heightened. The success of mobility companies in this process of transformation is determined by their capacity for forward thinking. When the appropriate strategy has been determined, there is a need for people who are able to implement this strategy and to push it forward.
Giving shape to generation change
In the near future many experienced colleagues will be retiring. When they leave, know-how acquired over many years and a great wealth of experience will leave the automotive industry with them. Companies must prepare themselves for this transition in structure and personnel and they must work proactively to shape it. Of course, at the same time this situation offers opportunities for highly qualified candidates to advance their careers.
New players, new business models
Data and digital services are preparing the way for groundbreaking offers in the automotive industry. They are becoming a factor for unique selling points and characteristics and are essential expediters in the context of an outstanding experience for customers.

As a result more complex value-added chains are emerging, and likewise new business models and strategic partnerships.
