IS NOT WHAT
It’s about thinking ahead. Step by step. We don’t need creative genius to create. We need evolving ideas.
RESPOND TO CHANGE.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Instead of proactively looking for the purpose of our innovation efforts, we too often act like reactive trend hunters.
PEOPLE WHO FIT IN.
PEOPLE WHO STAND OUT.
We naturally focus too often on people with standard CVs. We need more weird ones. More of the extraordinary.
It’s not about finding the solution. It’s not about providing the smartest answers. It’s all about the question.
CHANGE YOUR CULTURE.
We need to be an attractive employer. Our culture makes us attractive. To attract means to change our culture.
A MATTER OF TALENT.
A MATTER OF COURAGE.
You are not born to be a game changer. With courage you become one. By acting despite your fears and doubts.
