Christian Zingg, Creative Business Hacker – How to Connect Strategy and Operations by Intrinsic Ownership

The presentation will be about:

  • Understanding the Maslow Pyramid Model for companies
  • Deep-Dive in the Challenges in the Transformation from Taylor driven Companies into Customer demand driven Companies. Typical defects and how to handle them
  • Management Change - what we need from this role and why this is the hardest part
  • Autonomy and alignment at the same time - an unrealistic wish, or how to reach that state
  • Instead of being afraid of, manage instability and use it to boost change
  • How Tools and Frameworks can help and why they are not the holy grail
  • How to develop a proper Working Culture and how to immediately destroy it
  • New Generations - how to become attractive for new employees in times of expert shortage

Christian Zingg has always had the impulse to do things different and the vision to enable people to unleash their skills and create great customer centric products, which motivated him to completely shift his job focus in 2015. As Head of Digital Innovation Lab, the X-Lab, he had the great opportunity to make sure to have ideal working conditions for his team, and besides that learn so much about the success factors and hurdles of successfully switching to an agile mindset in big companies. What proves the effectivity of the X-Lab as a Light-tower of agile working inside the VW Group is the price "Best Digital Innovation Lab 2017".

Christian is proud to be part of this and nominated as "Top 40 under 40" for the management of this team! Meanwhile the spirit and culture of the X-Lab scaled up within RIO - as Head of Agile Mastery, together with his Team they developed a competitive software development company. Tough challenge, reflecting the traditional roots of our initiative! Before his digital journey he collected 10+ years of working experience in traditional waterfall development of OEM products in different positions with deep insights and learnings how big companies operate and how it comes to decisions.

    Norbert Majerus, Business Owner and author at norbert majerus consulting – Winning Innovation – Creating a Culture of Innovation

    Creating a Lean Culture of Innovation - Success or failure with innovation is all based on culture just as it is with operational excellence.

    ​A successful innovation culture starts with the right strategy and appropriate deployment. Knowledge about the principles of innovation leads to the right processes. The values and right behaviors are based on respect for people and humble leadership, but they also include management of fear and risk. Many people think that waste elimination and standardization (which come with a lean system) can hurt creativity and they cite Toyota's delay of electric vehicles as an example. That is unfortunate because a good lean culture can actually promote innovation.

    Norbert Majerus is a highly experienced man. Beginning in 2005, Norbert implemented a principles-based lean product development process at the three Global Innovation Centers of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. For more than a decade he was Goodyear’s lean champion in research and development.

    Norbert, born and raised in Luxembourg, has a Master’s degree in Chemistry from the Universitaet des Saarlandes, Saarbruecken, Germany. He joined Goodyear in Luxembourg in 1978, transferred to Akron in 1983, and has worked most disciplines in the Goodyear innovation centers in Luxembourg and Akron.

    In 2016, Norbert published his first book, Lean-Driven Innovation (Norbert Majerus, CRC Press, 2016), which received the Shingo Research Award. Also in 2016, with Norbert’s guidance the Goodyear R&D organization applied for and received the AME Excellence Award. Norbert has spoken at many conferences in the United States and other countries. Since retiring from Goodyear in 2017, he continues to share his extensive lean expertise via norbert majerus consulting. His latest contribution is his second book Winning Innovation, just released!
