Joerg Jockel, VP, Agile Organizational Coach for Mobility Solutions, Robert Bosch GmbH
Joerg Jockel has a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry. He started his career as researcher for nanomaterials and sensors at Bosch corporate research in 2002.
From there he graduated as the first of today’s more than one thousand Bosch certified project leaders. In projects, as group leader and department head, he gathered experiences within hardware development with distributed teams and got manufacturing insights on high volume series production. Joerg´s career took an unexpected turn when he got in touch with Scrum. Soon he asked himself: could Scrum also work outside of software development or even development in general? The consequence was obvious: Joerg took on a new challenge and switched from engineering to the corporate department for organizational development.
Since 2012, he is one of the agile pioneers at Bosch, driving the transformation of the company in various agile roles. 2018, he became the Agile Organizational Coach (Vice President) for the business sector Mobility Solutions that employs about 240,000 associates. In this unique role at Bosch, he reports directly to the board of management with the credo: “Driving Agility – Enable. Transform. Scale.”
