* December 28th, 1944. † July 9th, 2017.
Prof. Dr. Dres. h.c. Arnold Picot was one of the founding fathers of the CDTM who supported its vision and organisation from the beginning to his unexpected death on July 9, 2017. From 1988-2013 Prof. Picot has been holding the chair of the Institute for Information, Organization and Management at the Munich School of Management at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany. With him, we lost a visionary with many research, professional and personal interests who always stood up for the CDTM and it’s bottom-up culture.
In 2021 Dr. Ippen, publisher of the Munich Merkur donated four CDTM scholarships in the name of Prof. Arnold Picot.
