About the event
Former Bombardier VP Edwin van Vlierberghe argued that the COVID-19 crisis offers companies a unique opportunity to renew their relationships with customers, suppliers and employees alike – and to stimulate innovative thinking about their products, services and processes that will place them ahead of the field in the post-lockdown world.
Everything we know from decades of research evidence and practical experience about what makes a productive, innovative and healthy organisation cannot be put on hold until the end of the crisis. On the contrary, it is now more important than ever.
Comparing like with like, companies adopting workplace innovation practices systematically achieve 20-60% gains in productivity, innovation and employee well-being.
Edwin has faced many challenging situations in his varied career. Until recently, Edwin led Bombardier’s Global Procurement and Supply Chain and was responsible for some 15,000 people. Previously he was CEO of the Belgian division (a plant in Bruges with 900 persons). He managed to transform this whole traditional tram producing plant into the most productive site in the Bombardier family. In his most recent role, he was asked to lead the cultural transformation of global procurement and the company’s supply chain to create a “shining island” of good practice.
