The new duo head Sebastian Bayer and Christine Hanusch-Linzer rely on “generational talent”. There was a lot of organizing and networking at the New Year's cocktail.
According to its own statements, the IAA has focused more on supporting industry topics such as employer trade, new work and a fair pitch culture over the past two years. For the next period, IAA Presidents Sebastian Bayer and Christine Hanusch-Linzer have now presented a comprehensive “Future of Architecture” which aims to provide members with a useful orienting compass for the transformation of the marcom industry.
The beginning of the new year
At the start of the new year, a framework for “high performance workplaces” was presented, which the advertising and marcom industries could use as a guide to “position themselves together and be seen as an attractive industry of the future”. Seven work areas are addressed around key transformational drivers – such as generational change, AI and organizational culture – with which the IAA offering will focus on:
- New leadership
- Smart Automation
- Future-motivated skills
- Personal development
- Fair performance
- High performance workplaces.
“Questions That Concern Everyone”
“We asked the questions that are on everyone's mind right now: What do we need to do to combine the knowledge transfer of the experienced generation and the dynamics of the younger employees, so that we can really do what defines us, namely high-quality creative performance “If we want to develop the full potential of our employees, it is confidence, self-determination and We hope to combine that with a greater degree of flexibility,” says President Sebastian Bayer.
“High-performance workplaces are primarily characterized by new quality KPIs that are measured by results and less by resources. This is a very effective and economical lever, but initially requires a focus on leadership and culture that connects generations and cultures,” added co-chair Christine Hanusch-Linzer. Says: “That's why we as the IAA want to set a precedent with a modern leadership concept and now transform ourselves into a shared leadership presidium.”
