Our projects cover a range of themes; from choosing and implementing cloud tools, to security advisory on your digital collaboration IT infrastructure, to workshops on future workplace design. We promise a hands-on approach and ensure workable results and implementation power if required.
We helped advise on the decision between tools such as Office 365 and G Suite from a leadership, admin and user perspective. Additionally we led the deployment and change management phase for 800+ employees and 50 locations.
With more than 400 employees, thjnk is one of the most successful agencies in Germany. We helped to identify and roll out highly collaborative tools for their project work and supported the IT department to bring 'new work' to traditional admin setups.

OUr weekly 'new Work' Podcast
The 'On the Way to New Work' podcast is a weekly interview series by Blackboat founder and CEO Christoph Magnussen and thjnk group chairman Michael Trautmann. It focusses on the people behind the digital transformation and focusses on how work is changing through tools and new work methods.
It started during a trip to New York where the entrepreneurs had the idea for a shared book project and began to document their interveiws for the book in the form of a podcast. The larger part of the interviews are in German and their participants range from top level executives like Axel Springer, CEO Mathias Döpfner or Volkswagen CDO Johann 'JJ' Jungwirth, to founders like Christian Häfner, who works entirely remotely, and even including 15 year-old students who run their own agency in the afternoon.
