Newsletter 2020|02


Dear reader,

A lot has happened since our last newsletter and a lot keeps happening, welcome to be a part of it.

Have fun reading and if you have some colleagues, who aren’t receiving the IBCS news feed, why don’t you invite them, so you can discuss IBCS on the next coffee break.

Jürgen Faisst and Rolf Hichert


Review of a successful premiere

More than 350 registered participants – this exceeded the expectations for our first virtual conference. The virtual formula was a mix of short lectures, open discussions and an exciting design contest for IBCS Certified Consultants.

Watch the short video and feel impressions…

Traditionally, Jürgen Faisst opened the event with news from the IBCS community. With the topic It’s “double” time Jürgen emphasized how much IBCS concept is developing in the world.

Bernie Smith inspired the audience with his keynote lecture on Selecting your KPIs, the logical way.

Many thanks to all speakers, participants and partners for a very successful event. Save the date for IBCS Conference 2021 on July 2nd both virtually and in Berlin.

The course is corresponding to the book with the same title Solid, outlined, hatched. You will be able to study IBCS notation and its application step by step with the help of learning videos, online assessments and practical exercises.


“What we learn with pleasure we never forget. And this was one of such learning. A wonderful online-course by Jürgen Faisst – do check it out!”
