»A gorgeous speech you've delivered at the Personal Swiss. Nothing was missing: a clear message, presence and highlighted with lot of humor!«
Stefan Kälin, Head HR, Hogrefe AG
No doubt Lars Vollmer was the cream on the cake of an inspiring day. Our 100 SCM leaders experienced a sparkling and humorous performance by Lars Vollmer during the Global Logistics Automotive Managers Meeting (GLAMM) of Continental. By putting together some wisdom from his grandpa and practical examples of obvious waste in everyones daily business he could enthuse the audience to start immediate action when back home.
Dr. Wolfgang Menzel, Vice President Logistics Automotive, Continental AG
»Unlike Nena: Somehow - Somewhere - Some day, but right now I want to say thank you for your entertaining speach within the congress 'Montage 2012'.

»Again, we don't want to miss to thank you for your successful contribution on the occasion of the 23. German Assembling Congress.
The throughout positive participant's resonance also on your speech shows that we are able to look back on a successful Event. We would be pleased if we again may involve your experience and know-how in future events.«

Lars Vollmer gets to the heart of the significant difference between important and urgent management tasks. With his humorous speech he convinces experienced managers as well as students of what is most important for successful change: implementation strength and dedication. The key to becoming a successful implementation organisation is to institute implementation habits. The speech „You Know What to Do. Now Get It Done!“ is an outstanding impulse to equally convince colleagues and superiors (of what really matters).
Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Peter Nyhuis, Leibniz University Hanover
»The Hamburg discussion group would like to thank Dr. Vollmer for his Keynote »You Know What to Do. Now Get It Done!« within the 'Hamburger Gespräche 2011'. Not only that your electifying speech rounded our event it also gave the listeners useful input to think about.«
Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Wolfgang Kersten, Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg
»The excellent combination of Lean experience and Lean infotainment is the typical form of storyteller Dr. Lars Vollmer’s presentation. With his entertaining speech You Know What to Do, Now Get It Done, he calls upon all Managers to dedicate themself to implementation. Certainly, in our knowledge-society an appropriate input for continous improvement.
Dr. Lars Vollmer is following Galileo Galilei’s comprehension: ‘You cannot teach a human being; you can just help to discover theirself.’ Thanks for the enlightening expedition.«
Die exzellente Kombination von Lean-Erfahrung und Lean-Infotainment prägen die Vorträge des Storytellers Dr. Lars Vollmer.
Mit dem unterhaltsamen Beitrag „Wissen ist Gut. Aber erst Machen Macht besser!“ appelliert er an alle Führungskräfte, sich stärker der Umsetzung zu widmen. In unserer Wissensgesellschaft sicherlich ein trefflich akzentuierter Beitrag zur stetigen Verbesserung.
Damit folgt Dr. Vollmer der Einsicht des Galileo Galilei: „Man kann einen Menschen nichts lehren, man kann ihm nur helfen, es in sich selbst zu entdecken.“ Ich danke für diese aufschlussreiche Entdeckungsreise.
Michael Kasteleiner, Technical Manager, hülsta-Werke Hüls GmbH & Co. KG
»In his presentation You Know What to Do, Now Get It Done, Mr. Vollmer conveys his passion for Lean not only with expertise but also very humorously and to the point.
So even after a tough seminar day, Lean makes for a truly entertaining, enjoyable evening program.«
Klemens Kalverkamp, CEO, Grimme Landmaschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG
»Slides are a no-go in Dr. Vollmer’s presentations. He always relates his points in a vivid manner to practical everyday issues by comparing well-known problems of business life with those of our personal lives. He doesn’t prescribe definitive solutions but always inspires me to think.
In the end, I take many implementable ideas and inspirations back with me to my company.«
Michael Braetz, CEO, Sema Systemtechnik GmbH
»Always front and center in the world of Lean — that’s Dr. Vollmer. At the 2010 VDMA Practice Day, he thrilled the audience with his presentation You Know What to Do, Now Get It Done.
We all know: Objectives and their definitions are very important. But implementation is key. Our businesses must make a habit of implementation work. Dr. Vollmer is right to see a lot of potential here.«
Heinz Schwendner, Assembly Manager, BÖWE SYSTEC AG
»Finally a PhD who impresses with practice orientation rather than theorizing. Who doesn’t make you feel like you’re sitting through a lecture but is all about the nuts and bolts of getting things done.
Thanks for the lively input that showed the KAAPKE crew which proven industrial methods can also work in a development environment such as our brand agency for smaller businesses. We got the message — now it’s up to us to leverage it.«
Timo Kaapke, geschäftsführender Gesellschafter, KAAPKE GmbH"Endlich ein Doktor, der besticht durch Praxisorientierung statt Vertheoretisierung. Einer, bei dem man nicht das Gefühl hat in einer Vorlesung zu hocken, sondern volle Kante in der Praxis unterwegs ist.
Danke für den lebendigen Input, der der KAAPKE Crew gezeigt hat, welche Erfahrungen aus der Industrie auch für eine Entwicklungsumgebung wie unsere Markenagentur für den Mittelstand funktionieren können. Der Funke ist übergesprungen. – Jetzt liegt es an uns selber: Feuer frei!"
Timo Kaapke, geschäftsführender Gesellschafter, KAAPKE GmbH
Timo Kaapke, Managing Partner, KAAPKE GmbH
»He’s right: 'We don’t have a knowledge problem; we have an implementation problem.' This presentation is exciting, but it also strikes a nerve. Employees in many organizations are confused by too many non-synchronized initiatives that lack clear priorities and, most importantly, are not geared toward implementation. This presentation should be required listening for all executives!
With his refreshing and original presentational style, Dr. Vollmer hits the nail on the head.«
Eberhard Weiss, Vice President, Robert Bosch GmbH
»Dr. Vollmer ignites enthusiasm for Lean Management. He shows us where we have to apply the lever to lift an organization out of its torpor. Simple, transparent and efficient.«
Dr.-Ing. Hans-Wilhelm Leyendecker, VDMA
»Fantastic — very engaging, and lots of food for thought.«
Konrad König, Desch Antriebstechnik
