Welcome to my blog!

My name is Karin Maria Schertler - expert on large scale transformation in the VUCA age.

Social and organisational change is a matter close to my heart. They are of utmost importance when it comes to safeguarding Europe’s Future.

Professionally I operate between the poles of technology, organisations and the human being. (for more details see LinkedIn)

My secret of success: I‘m both the BRAIN and the HEART of large scale transformation projects. Or to put it differently: I am a Transformation Architect and a Chief Transformation Agent likewise.

I publish my observations, views and research results in the industry and commercial press as well as in this blog: Your source of inspiration for LARGE SCALE TRANSFORMATIONS.
