After studying Applied Mathematics in Germany and in the USA, Frank collected more than 15 years of experience in managing projects and innovation. He worked for specialized medium-sized national consulting companies as well as for The Boston Consulting Group. Additionally he was working at C-level for a greenfield startup, an IT firm and a Professional Services firm.

DR. RALPH-CHRISTIAN OHR

‘Modern Open and Digital innovation requires a Dual Innovation approach. We help you to design and implement it.’

Dr. Ralph-Christian Ohr is an experienced and well-versed corporate innovation and development consultant. He held senior management positions at international companies across industries such as Thin Film/Semiconductor, Energy and Transportation.

In 2012, Ralph co-wrote with Frank a well-received article series on ‘Balancing Innovation via Organizational Ambidexterity’ with Frank. Therefore, the two can be considered pioneers in translating the previously in large part academic concept of Organizational Ambidexterity into practical relevance for companies.
