"Ich kenne Professor Reitzig seit über 15 Jahren und schätze ihn als innovativen Denker und klaren Redner, dessen Grundlagenforschung für unsere Praxis der Innovationsorganisation große Bedeutung gehabt hat. Seine Analysen unserer Ideengenerierungs- und bewertungsprozesse haben uns in vieler Hinsicht völlige neue Perspektiven eröffnet. Als Gastredner in vielen seiner Veranstaltungen habe ich immer wieder erlebt, wie er gestandene Manager für sein Fach begeistern kann."

Prof. Dr. Thomas Müller-Kirschbaum
Corp. Senior Vice President, Innovation & Sustainability, Henkel KGaA, Düsseldorf

„At ITC, we worked with Prof Markus Reitzig on two important projects over two to three years: "Future Capability Building" and "Enhancing Organizational Innovation Capability". His contributions have proved invaluable in getting the organization prepared to be "Future Ready".
I experienced Markus, as a teacher, to draw his material from a range of subjects and present an array of logical and coherent viewpoints and options to consider. He enthuses others to pursue an interesting voyage of intellectual discovery.
Markus is grounded in the proven, but very open to the new and eager to innovate. He is an expert in many subjects and his passion to to learn keeps him contemporaneous. He combines enthusiasm, humour and mental horsepower seamlessly.
Markus and I are good friends and I continue to seek his guidance to forward me into the future.“

"The digital world and certainly the Covid world is characterized by disruptions and innovations in business models.  The ability to innovate fast has to be embedded in your organization fabric, culture and strategy, to not only survive the present but to thrive in the future. I have worked with Marcus over the years on issues of corporate strategy, organization design that supports innovation and creativity and building an innovation culture.  I found Markus to be a great facilitator in converting theory to practice; and very easy to work with."

“For over two years, Markus was a key scientific advisor to me in my role as Director of Strategy and Development at the Danish Patent and Trademark Office. Through his various initiatives, Markus was instrumental in creating an ecosystem between science, government, and practise in the domain of intellectual property in the Nordic Region. Drawing on his wide academic and corporate network, his creativity and energy really allowed him to  make a difference to the community. Markus started as a valuable advisor, and today I am proud to be able to call him my friend."

"Markus Reitzig und ich trafen uns das erste Mal 2012 im Rahmen des Schickler Strategieforums, bei dem er eine der Keynote Präsentationen gab. Was mich als Berater und Geschäftsführer sofort überzeugte, war die prägnante Vermittlung praxisrelevanten Wissens aus der Forschung für Zuhörer aus der Wirtschaft. Die Art, in der Markus sein breites Wissen zu Unternehmensstrategien und disruptiven Geschäftsmodellen mit Praktikern teilt, schafft einen echten Mehrwert für seine Zuhörer. Ich empfehle Markus Reitzig nachhaltig als corporate speaker!"

"Professor Markus Reitzig was our mentor and advisor when shaping the Business Plan for HelpLegal, a venture in the international airline sector. His contributions were essential in the development and proved invaluable for the deployment of our worldwide digital arm. The work we did with him over several months during the critical stage of scaling the business realistically prepared us for the future.
Our experience with Prof. Markus was transformative, given the variety of subjects he masters, and the logics and precise vision he brought to the project. His opinion and advice draw on his immense professional experience; he balances technological, regulatory, and business considerations in a way that optimally meets the practical needs. To me personally, he is one of the most convincing strategy specialists that have I met during my long career. His passion for learning and helping to develop innovative projects endow him with a vision that clearly makes him be in advance of his time. Our system has now been patented in the United States, and in good part we owe this success story to his professional support in the early days”.

"Ich habe Professor Reitzig als Gastredner bei einer internationalen Management Konferenz kennen gelernt.

Er kann ein internationales Publikum durch seine klare Sprache in seinen Bann ziehen und regt an, über neue Sichtweisen und Perspektiven nachzudenken."

"Professor Reitzig is a master communicator who brings a blend of contemporary theory, deep practical experience and strong data analytics to business problems. The main insight I took from his Strategic Innovation class was that unless a business is anticipating and adapting to change, then it is in decline – even if it doesn’t yet know it.
Markus’s teaching uses primary research, case studies and proven analytical techniques to help businesses identify and adapt to disruption. While I took Markus’s class in 2011, I still use many of the concepts and tools today."

"Whenever I think about developing a new strategy in my businesses today, I ask myself one question: What would Madonna do?  

Early in my career, I thought I understood organizational strategy, but it wasn't until Professor Reitzig's Strategy lectures that I realized I was only focused on a very small component of a company's strategy. What I learned most was to take a larger view of the organisation and to think critically about the future of the company and its environment.

"Markus is a strong presenter and has an extremely critical thought process, two characteristics that are invaluable in analysing and teaching some the most complex subjects in business. Coupled with Markus's real-world examples of corporations and people (like Madonna), I know I can rely on his teachings from a decade ago to still have an impact on my career in the decades to come."

"What can I say about Professor Markus?

My MBA experience at LBS was exemplified by my Strategy course with Professor Markus. Being the Group Managing Director of a diversified conglomerate spanning several continents with an extensive focus in challenging markets of West Africa, I thought I had seen it all at the young of 33. However having signed up then for my MBA and especially having attended his course, this put a completely different spin on things. He put a professional perspective and offered valuable solutions to the real life problems I was facing at the time which proved to be a a positive contribution to my MBA experience. The takeaways from the course enabled me to directly deal with all sorts of practical problems methodically and scientifically.

In recent years my Group has been privileged to have Professor Markus visit us in Nigeria and hold a training program for our Senior Management throughout West Africa. This was truly an enlightening and invaluable experience for all who attended and are hopeful to be able to attend further courses with Professor Markus in the hopefully not too distant future".

"I have had the pleasure to participate in several of Professor Reitzig's master student courses. With his broad background in both research and practice he is able to apply scientific theories to current real-life business issues, thereby creating a holistic learning experience. His highly interactive teaching style guides students to have their own breakthroughs for sustainable knowledge acquisition."
