He was a research group manager at the Computer Science Department of Technische Universität München and held visiting appointments at the University of Maryland, Columbia University, University of Queensland, University of California, Berkeley and Harvard University.

Open Communities, Co-Creation, and Healthcare “Crowdsourcing” and “Virtual Communities” are currently among the most discussed key words among Information Systems and Management researchers. The major question for both research and business is how to find and lever the enormous potential of the “collective brain” to improve real-life situations in many areas of application. Drawing from various large scale research projects that design, develop and test crowdsourcing solutions in real-world settings such as Healthcare and Education (amongst many others), the talk presents examples and evidence for factors and underlying mechanisms and design principles that determine positive outcomes of crowdsourcing activities.

Darwinians, Communitarians and Missionaries: The Role of Founder Identity in Entrepreneurship Drawing on social identity theory, Prof. Gruber explores the identities, behaviors, and actions of 49 firm founders in the sports-related equipment industry. His analysis suggests the existence of three pure types of founder identities and shows how these identities systematically shape key decisions in the creation of new firms, thereby “imprinting” the start-ups with the founders’ distinct self-concepts. Prof. Gruber will synthesize his findings in a typology that sheds light on the heterogeneous meanings that founders associate with new firm creation and that improves understanding as to why fundamental differences in firm creation processes and outcomes exist.

The face of the streets will be changed forever by Carfrogger. Carfrogger.de is the place to design, protect and revalue your car – using car wrapping technologies. More and more cars are being wrapped with colored or printed foils in order to (1) protect the car from scratches/defects affecting the paint work (e.g. leased cars), (2) to redesign the car in line with individual preferences and (3) to revalue used cars. However, these wrapping jobs are typically carried out by corner shops with little professional service, often times low quality and limited options or ideas for appealing designs. The Carfrogger business logic combines a network of certified wrap shops delivering high quality wrapping services with a powerful online community as a sales channel and as a source of ideas for individual and attractive designs. This community is the cornerstone that ensures a constant flow of highly attractive and individual car designs (via an ongoing design contest) and other leads. Revenues are generated through a mixed model of an offline wrapping business (owned or licensed wrap shops) and online utilization of the Carfrogger wrapping community. Dr. Michael Bartl was born and raised in the wonderful city of Munich. He started his academic career with a Bachelor of Science from the University of Westminster London, a Dipl.Kfm. from the University of Munich (LMU) and a Ph.D. from the Otto Beisheim Graduate School (WHU) in Vallendar on the topic of co-creation, open innovation and new media. In 2004 he started his own business as CEO together with two partners Michael Schmidt and Dr. Johann Füller. Hyve, a leading innovation agency, and Carfrogger merged the competencies of industrial design, innovation research and community software development.

PETER PRIBILLA FOUNDATION IN A NUTSHELL Innovation & Leadership

PETER PRIBILLA-STIFTUNG The Peter Pribilla Foundation is part of the property of the corporate body of the Technische Universität München (TUM). The Foundation supports science, research, and academic teaching in the fields of innovation and leadership in accordance with the spirit of its founders Peter and Hannelore Pribilla. Peter Pribilla was a member of the Siemens Managing Board and at the same time he was Honorary TUM Professor since 1997. Informed by his experience at Siemens, including his responsibilities as Head of Corporate Human Resources, Professor Pribilla initiated academic research in many different settings about action learning, knowledge management, teamwork, and other topics. His intellectual interests, based on academic study and practical experience, are directly reflected in the two topics that are the focal points of the Peter Pribilla Foundation

INNOVATION & LEADERSHIP The activities of the Foundation in his honor are based on the content and the style of Peter Pribilla’s very fruitful interactions with TUM. We are fostering personal connections among business people and academics to advance understanding about the leadership of innovation – a critical subject in today’s globalizing economy.

Peter and Hannelore Pribilla’s Vision for Practical Research “We collaborate in a worldwide network of knowledge and learning. Our corporate culture is shaped by its diversity of people, cultures, open dialogue, mutual respect, defined goals, and decisive leadership.” Peter Pribilla, 2003

Peter Pribilla was born on the 11th of June, 1941. He studied Communications Engineering at the Technische Universität München (TUM). After graduating with a Masters of Engineering degree in 1968, he joined the engineering conglomerate Siemens. After working in several different Siemens units, he became president of the subsidiary Rolm Communications in Santa Clara, California from 1993 to 1996, then a member of the management board of Siemens in 1997. Peter Pribilla was also one of TUM’s most influential corporate partners. In addition to numerous guest lectures, he taught courses on innovation and leadership for a number of years. In recognition of his many contributions in research, teaching, and administrative advice, he became an honorary TUM professor in 1997. We were just completing a joint study on corporate leadership at the time of his untimely death in August 2003. The activities of the foundation in his honor are based on the content and style of Peter Pribilla’s very fruitful interactions with TUM. We are fostering personal connections among business people and academics to advance understanding of the leadership of innovation – a critical subject in today’s globalizing economy. Hannelore Pribilla was born on the 26th of May, 1942, in Dresden. After studies in mathematics, she began to work as a member of the pioneer research and development group at the IT department in Siemens AG. From 1997 Hannelore Pribilla was a member of the research group at the Institute for Information, Organization and Management at TUM. As a member of the academic family she was interested in the research works of our doctoral students, advised doctoral theses, and supported the team in uncertain times. One of Hannelore Pribilla’s main research fields involved human relations and the computer. In this and other areas she established contacts between scientists at Siemens AG and researchers at different universities. In the 1980s she was involved in numerous projects on the “future of work in a computerized world.” In the 1990s at the TUM, Hannelore Pribilla was one of the founders of the “forum of telecooperation” together with Kathrin Möslein and Johann Schlichter. In 1992 she initiated an important research project in cooperation with her husband, Peter Pribilla, in the field of top management communications. This empirical research project focused on the “application of new media in telecommunications and their effects on the working environment of top level management.” One output of this project was the book authored by Peter Pribilla, Ralf Reichwald, and Robert Goecke: Telecommunication in Management – Strategies for a Global Competition, published by Schäffer-Poeschel in 1996. We are very pleased to follow the pioneering footsteps of two individuals who successfully contributed to both practice and academic study.
