The Academic Society can once again look back on a successful year. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our corporate partners for their commitment and support of our research projects. This year, the research projects were primarily characterized by the topic of agility: changing structures and processes within a communications department to become more agile (Leipzig University), topic management in agile organizations (University of Vienna) and the cooperation with service providers and consultants (University of Münster). Another research project examined the potential of bots for corporate communications (University of Duisburg-Essen). In addition to our research projects, we are also very pleased that the Communication Benchmarking Initiative is becoming a constant. Join us on a journey through the year 2019!
