Prof. Dr. Katharina Janus is the president and CEO of ENJOY STRATEGY – formerly the Center for Healthcare Management – a global healthcare market expertise firm that provides privileged insights, market access, and implementation advice, consistently engaging key opinion leaders. Services range from due diligence, creating collaborations, to post-merger integration, repositioning, and value shaping. Over the last twenty years she has held multiple positions as an entrepreneurial executive, tenured full professor in Germany and several professorial appointments at Columbia University, New York.

As a German-born global citizen she has chosen France as her home and base camp for her world-wide undertakings.


Making complex markets & stakeholder relationships transparent, understandable and ready for far-reaching positioning, investment and realignment decisions. I use my background in business management and organizational behavior in combination with financial facts and cultural competency to generate realistic and pragmatic insights about healthcare markets and design ecosystems at both the macro and micro-economic levels.
“Talk to people” – sounds very simple, but it is ever more so important. Evidence shows that secondary data does not provide a sound basis for high-impact business decisions. Only if you get out on the shopfloor, put gowns, goggles and protective equipment on, you find the real drivers, blockers, outliers, champions and “emotions“ of organizations that will decide about a strategy’s success in practice.
I love what I do. And I see myself as a connector between people, knowledge, markets, and happenings – the big picture is my drawing. First become humanist, then specialist. I aspire to follow in the footsteps of my great-great-grandaunt Juliane Janus who was a hospital founder in the 19th century. Humbleness for the cause and respect for every human being are the starting point for strategy shaping and thoughtful execution.


Have you ever thought about how you came to know what you know? Have you wondered why many political decisions seem irrational and neglect existing knowledge? In the age of fake and fantastical news Katharina Janus unpacks knowledge creation – participating parties, phenomena, and contextual interaction that determine how knowledge is made and how it influences decision-making from the personal to the political level. She reveals the essential ingredients, their impact and failure when pure facts become “known” and flavored by people, explaining why not always the “right” decisions are made despite the wealth of existing knowledge available and how you can turn knowledge into targeted action for your own success.
