Die digitale Transformation der Geschäftswelt führt zu einem radikalen Umbruch und erhöht vor dem Hintergrund der Konkurrenzfähigkeit den Innovationsdruck nicht nur, aber gerade auch in der Versicherungswirtschaft. Versicherungsunternehmen stehen vor der Herausforderung, ihre Innovationsleistung durch gezielte Massnahmen zu steigern.

Vor diesem Hintergrund ist es für Versicherungsunternehmen wichtig zu wissen, wie sie ihre Innovationsfähigkeit ausbauen können.
