Ulrich Fries is convinced that challenges are best solved in an agile way and that small technical improvements often lead into big steps. He also thinks that communication is underestimated. He has been bringing these ideas to the University of Stuttgart since 2016. At the intersection of IT and communication, he led and directed projects as an editor and consultant at university communications. Qualifications and experience in journalism and public relations qualify the tech-savvy humanities graduate. Web programming and viewing things in an overall strategic context are his other tools.
Accordingly, his focus in the Agility Lab is on communication and digitalization.
