let’s think about things

Today, technology makes it possible to implement (almost) every idea. But a company must also find out which services are in demand on the market. It is also important to think about the future business model. thingminds works with you to develop an innovative strategy that your customers will appreciate and differentiate your business from the competition.

I’m Eugen Rodel and I like to do research, write, present or tell you something about things. I would be happy to advise you. Therefore thingminds stands for Consulting, Research & Programming in the triangle of business, technology and people.

I am passionate about combining the expertise of a management consultant, the curiosity of a technology nerd and the creativity of an artist. This allows me a new perspective on everyday things. Agile, iterative techniques, design thinking and visual thinking are the basics of my work.

My expertise includes business and technology related topics such as innovation, business models, service-oriented strategies, digital transformation, Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and Artificial Intelligence.
