    Head of Organisation Development and Group Transformation


The megatrends sustainability and digitalisation have led to the greatest, fastest and deepest transformation of the automotive industry, disrupting and reshaping the business.

From the birth of the iconic Beetle to the evolution into a multi-brand group, Volkswagen has always been in the driver’s seat when it came to shaping the future of mobility.

Now, Volkswagen is reinventing its business once again: from a car manufacturer to a provider of sustainable mobility for generations to come. It’s no longer just about cars. It’s about an amazing experience that is intuitive, personalised, and emission-free.

Yvonne Bettkober, head of organisational development and transformation, will share how technology has become the driving force behind Volkswagen’s progress, from smarter vehicles to smarter shop floors.

They key to success of this massive transformation is not the technology alone though. It’s the people. People with a growth mindset, strong values, and passion.
