It is always exciting to start something new. This week in Thailand, we launched an Innovation Program to drive Operational Excellence for the production site here.
Inception of a new way of thinking: accelerating results with focus and structure. We defined six opportunity areas which we will work on over the next 12 months.
What I have learned? Build on existing activities and explain based on examples - keep this in mind.
This week, I spend one and a half days with the diverse BPO team in Singapore. We discussed how to lead with positivity, define meaningful and actionable objectives and tried ourselves in creative solution finding.
What did I learn? Yes, people like crazy ideas and they are important as inspiration to start things in a new way.
“If we keep doing the same thing,
we keep getting the same results.
In order to grow, we all need to start
doing things differently!”
Last week we have reflected on the innovation program for our R&D team in China.
a) a structure to regularly interact, be creative and execute these ideas is leading to success
b) we need to focus on two type of innovation: one driven by market needs; another driven by cutting-edge technology
c) we need to cross more silos; engaging with more people in other functions, other regions, etc.
Thank you very much for your continued support!
