Key Takeaways "People - Systems - Processes - Culture: Digitization rocks!"

  • LV 1871 is very strongly focused: one line of business (life insurance) - one country (Germany) - one distribution channel (independent agents)
  • Digital change has several dimensions.
    • Digital Enabling: Optimization of the current business model (e.g.
      through process automation, AI, Big Data, Cloud etc.)
    • Digital expansion: expansion of business areas and distribution channels (e.g. through livv.at - digitalization enables online distribution and market entry in Austria)
    • Digital Innovation: development of new business models (e.g. by founding 71circles GmbH, which is to develop new customer accesses - such as Ferienfuchs or Moments for me)
  • The company mission "Preservation of quality of life" sets the framework. In addition, the systems, processes, employees and corporate culture must also have the right skills.
    • Systems: The infrastructure must be able to keep up with the mindset, e.g. through continuous, continuous further development that creates flexibility. A current topic for the LV 1871 is Cloud Readiness.
    • Processes: The processes must be able to contribute to the further development of the company. Therefore, agile methods were introduced in many divisions of LV 1871.
    • Employees: The skills of the employees are to be further developed, e.g. through coding dojos or architecture workshops.
    • Culture: Employees should be proud of their own abilities. They act as personal brands and corporate influencers. In addition, the LV 1871 establishes a culture of openness. The coding dojos, for example, are public. In addition, Meetups are organized and cooperation with start-ups is sought.
