Terms shape our thinking and are the basis for communication. Agreement on basic concepts is a central prerequisite for any constructive dialogue.
Particularly in the context of innovation and transformation, it is important to form precise definitions for new phenomena at an early stage in order to enable an effective communication about the changes, their implications and possible strategic responses.
In his publications, Dr. Dr. Jörn Lengsfeld therefore consistently proposes well-founded approaches to the definition of important terms. With the Digital Era Framework he presented a comprehensive contribution to the development of a coherent terminology to describe the phenomena of digitization, digital change and digital transformation.
The following glossary presents more than 450 terms from the fields of management, economics and communication with a focus on digitization and digital transformation.
The definitions and explanations presented here are taken from various from various of Dr. Dr. Jörn Lengsfeld's publications. If you wish to cite a definition, please refer in your bibliography to the original publication specified on the respective page.
The glossary is also available in German: Lengsfeld Lexikon.
