There he showed the state of the art of the business model management software of the cooperation between KIT and KPMG.

As a practical case, the task for the students was to model a business model transformation of the company Hilti. Therefore, the students were divided into four groups. After an introduction from , the students developed a business model canvas for the single states and tried to figure out solutions for an adequate representation of the business model transformation case. Each of the groups was supposed to represent their business model and got directly feedback from Christian Liebler and Dominik Augenstein. As a summary assessment, all of the groups did an excellent job and achieved incredible results.
