Ideatón: Leading the path of the future for the industry
This past February 17 we had an extraordinary brainstorming session with more than 80 members of our personnel from different areas of the company who helped in the creation of new ideas and to build the “nonexistent” industry, the industry of the future, stated Rodrigo Tona, at the beginning of the event.
The brainstorming, named Ideatón, was implemented thanks to Innbox, a company dedicated to provide business coaching and transferring innovation capabilities; and coach Nestor Guerra, a Spanish advisor specialized in agile innovation methods.
Multidisciplinary teams were organized. Each team was composed of personnel from different administrative areas: sales, continuous improvement, planning, information technology, quality management, among others; and together they developed solutions for various real-life challenges proposed for that exercise.
For all the participants of Ideatón, the event meant an important effort to incorporate innovation in the company’s DNA, that will lead the course of El Salvador’s industry 4.0.
They also highlighted the value of harnessing the potential of each one of the personnel to contribute ideas that will become solutions for the challenges facing the industrial sector.
By “thinking outside the box” and adding diverse professional views from personnel in different positions, in order to experience innovation in all our processes and operations…this is how we will build a better world!
