Speaker's bio
As part of the People & Culture management team at Axel Springer SE, Johannes Burr played a key role in the restructuring and realignment of the Group's central HR department, where he set the course for agile and modern HR work. Since mid-2013, he has been shaping, driving and shaping - initially as Head of Change Management and later in other HR management positions - the rapid transformation process from the formerly traditional publishing house to Europe's "leading digital media and technology company" in a management role. Certified as an Agile HR Manager and Scrum Master, his conviction to "be the change you want to see in others" motivates him to exemplify modern ways of working (such as agile working, social collaboration, self-organization and OKR) together with his teams and thus to set impulses for the further development towards a digital and agile company every day.
