The SUGAR-Programm offers an opportunity to get an outside perspective on the HUK Coburg insurance. By successfully accompanying several projects we experienced exciting methodological input, new ways of thinking, and the development of new solutions.

SUGAR is the perfect tool to bring cross-organizational devision digitization to the company.
The refreshing, innovative and agile spirit of SUGAR is simply contagious and inspires us again and again!
The complementing workshops and meet-Ups allow a complete interested corporate community to participate in this journey into the future of our products and services and to grow together.

Mit dem Vertrauen in die Design Thinking Methodik haben wir uns aufgeschlossen durch das gesamte Projekt bewegt und sind letztendlich zu einem sehr interessanten Ergebnis gekommen. Jeder Schritt auf dem Weg war ein wichtiges Puzzleteil für das Gesamtbild.

Innovativ und kreativ zu sein ist nichts, was man erzwingen kann. Vielmehr spielt das persönliche Verständnis unter den Teammitgliedern und ein gemeinsames Mindset eine große Rolle.
