    As a striker, Oliver Bierhoff embodied world class performance on the pitch. Today he continues to raise the bar in the world of football, as Manager of the German national team, by continuously developing new ways to improve not only the team but also the sport. Oliver and his team (coaches and scouts) started in 2004 and won the World Cup 10 years later. His message is: change does not come easy and you need to put the proper processes into place. Once that happens, things become more efficient and effective over time with the use of technology becoming the critical last piece of the puzzle.
