A Former EVP Shares How to Deliver Value from Transformation
A former KONE executive shares why planning and cultural integration are critical for transformation projects.
I have a few questions for the platform and for some of our users. So just to begin, what would be a key learning from one of the sessions or the breakout session you just attended.
I was very impressed by the session with Bart. About the alien. And, how has it successfully managed the integration between the consumer divisions of three brands into one. And I think it was, carefully planned, and, you know, one of the most difficult aspects of a transformation is the cultural integration of various companies, but it seems that they have, thought about it very wisely and that they have taken the careful steps to, make it a successful project.
And to then reflect back on your more than forty years in the industry across different industries and leading different transformations.
What would you say to companies now in terms of managing expectations in terms of getting the value realization?
I've had the privilege to work in, many businesses, first in information technology And then in the past ten years about, industrial manufacturing, I'm I'm an engineer by, education, but I'm business person by trade and by experience. And I think what is, has been learning across those, forty years is that the transformation is not about tools.
It's not just technical.
It, takes a lot to think about how the organization, need to be adjusted in order to deliver the value, the organization the processes and the people. And I I I think you need to make sure that not only is a, data the tool can deliver the right functionalities, but they are usable that, a business case has been carefully thought through. And that, you can focus well on delivering quick wins so that, you know, people feel that This is delivering results quickly, and it improved your confidence on how to continue and get to the total results.
Thank you. That's a very tangible piece of advice. Thank you so much, Pierre. Enjoy the rest of the event.
