We have donned our boots and grabbed pickaxes on a mission to learn how to climb Everest, with a clear goal: To win an innovative challenge. Our experts aren’t necessarily climbers, although they could be..... behind the Everest metaphor is an internal workshop. Its objective: not only to set a challenge to help improve the company, but also to search for innovative solutions by developing our group creativity. Without doubt, this expedition is bringing out the best in the team, transforming Preverisk and seizing opportunities in the face of adversity.
The pandemic has taught us many things... Changes in direction have been constant; long-term goals are meaningless. The Preverisk team has become an amphibian, able to function on land, in the sea and in the air. So there has never been a better time to dedicate ourselves to this adventure. The first question which sprang to mind before we began these sessions was: How to create new team business opportunities?
Our sherpa, Xavi Olba, has led us step by step into this virtual adventure in which, divided into teams, we have been able to build great and well thought out ideas. In the first session we learned how to identify and prioritise the challenges that Preverisk could face. In the following session we creatively came up with a list of the most original ideas. However, although all of them were great, an important part of development is to choose one path and then add value to it: That is, to work exclusively in one direction, not multiple ones, so as not to get lost. In previous sessions we worked on how our idea would impact the business model, seeing if the solution to our challenge was viable and working to shape and finalise each project.
We now find ourselves in the penultimate session, about to reach Everest’s summit. Each team has developed a completely sound project, to be presented to management. Will this be the definitive working method for the creation of new business opportunities? We have always believed that the team will reach the top. Thanks to these sessions we know that each and every one of us is a vital part of this creative and innovative process. A positive attitude allowed us to embark on a difficult expedition, leaving behind the pandemic footprint and learning to climb a new mountain each day.
