Prof. Dr. Eberhard Nöfer

“Don’t jump to conclusions….”

Eberhard Nöfer (1965) is an expert on the role of individuals in change management processes. He supports his clients in the early identification of potential change barriers and organizational “stress factors” that can emerge if the requirements of change processes are not aligned with individuals’ capabilities, potential and needs. By developing change strategies that strive to balance individuals’ needs and corporate change ambitions and by strengthening the individuals’ resources to cope with the requirements of change, he helps his clients to unlock the organization’s full potential.

During his entire career of more than 25 years, Eberhard has held responsibility for change management projects in various industries and in different roles. As a consultant, as a senior manager in a global food company and as Managing Director with full P&L responsibility, he initiated and led transformation initiatives with manifold functional contexts – e.g. post-merger integration, customer relationship management, human resources development, supply chain management and controlling.

Eberhard is a full-time professor for Business Administration at Coburg University of applied sciences and arts, Germany. He lectures to bachelor and master students in the department of social work and health. His academic career started with his studies in Business Administration in Germany and England. Later he received his doctorate (Dr. rer. pol.) with a thesis on strategies for production management in decentralized organizations at Jena University.

A father of four, he has so far managed to balance his professional career with family needs and an enthusiasm for running and books.
