Are too many long-standing companies applying the brakes on innovation? How can managers open up more space to their employees for creativity? These are two of the topics in the 18th issue of the Porsche Consulting Magazine. Its feature stories from industry and business focus on clever solutions for major tasks.

The last passengers have hardly disembarked before nightly maintenance work on the fleet of ICE trains begins. A precise timetable is important here too, as shown by a visit to Deutsche Bahn’s newest maintenance depot.
