Dr. Sebastian Schäfer
Digital Project Manager
I am a digital project manager @ Schacht One and responsible for projects with Haniel’s business unit CWS-boco. My primary responsibilities are being creative, driving projects from the early exploration phases to market-ready products and services, leading and guiding project teams, and getting things done.
Schacht One is what I call a “children’s room with broadband connection”. A creative retreat, where digital ideas and initiatives can foster and grow. Where else can you learn to generate ideas based on customer pains and develop these ideas into full fleshed products and services that actually make it to the market?
Before joining Schacht One, I worked as a research associate at RWTH Aachen University. I studied management at the University of Cologne, the Ruhr-University Bochum, and the California State University East Bay. I hold a PhD in innovation management from RWTH Aachen University and conducted research at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
