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, founder of thingminds. I like to do research, write, present or tell you something about a thing. I would be happy to advise you. Therefore thingminds stands for Consulting & Research.

The goal of thingminds is to help you think about things in a new way.

I am passionate about combining the expertise of a management consultant, the curiosity of a 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 for my work.

My expertise includes innovation, business models, service-oriented strategy and digital transformation, with the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0.
