Royal Philips is transforming from a conglomerate in Electronics into a focused leader in the HealthTech industry. The realisation of this ambition requires significant changes in business & product portfolio, but moreover it requires a pivotal change in how Philips works. Accelerating innovation, introducing new (digital) business models and increasing agility requires seamless integration of processes supported by state-of-the-art technology. A Philips Integrated Landscape that allows businesses around the world to team-up and work seamless together in a harmonized and standardized way.
Sounds fantastic right … but how does Philips achieve this in a complex and dynamic environment? How do they manage the long-term company transformation while businesses and markets are focused on annual functional goals/targets at the same time? And do they secure internal buy-in for the change and prevent continuous debate about priorities, resources and funding? If you recognize these challenges, be inspired by this Expert Dialogue in which Otto te Walvaart & Niels Loader will elaborate on the Philips transformation and the Integrated Landscape transformation program live from the studio at the RDM werf.
