Today, we are learning from Barbara Holzner.

Barbara is CEO of iCONDU GmbH and supports companies, municipalities, and organizations with complex challenges such as sustainability and digitalization. As a consultant, she moderates participation and strategy processes and supports her clients with innovative methods for impact-oriented project development and management. As a trainer and facilitator, she trains skills for dealing with complexity and shaping sustainable transformation. Together with her team, she develops tools such as the systems thinking software simcision and the SDG simulation game Sustain2030.

Barbara studied Digital Media at Ulm University of Applied Sciences. During her studies, she gained practical experience in the design and project management of complex applications. In her part-time Master’s degree in Educational Media at the University of Duisburg-Essen, she is working on the didactic design of digital learning applications. In addition to the development of simulation games and the design of participation formats, her focus is on the moderation of strategy and decision-making processes. Since the beginning of 2016, she has enriched iCONDU with her enthusiasm for co-creative solutions.
