The international work group, consisting of 16 controllers and consultants, all members of the ICV meets every year to work for a “target company”. The tendering this year won a company from Zielona Góra, Poland: LUG, producing light systems and exporting these really very innovative products all over the world.
On June 2nd all work group members arrived from Slovenia, Croatia, Russia, Germany and Poland to the hotel: a very warmhearted reunion!
Next morning three buses from LUG brought us to the family owned company. A group of 11 managers including three family members welcomed the ICV work group and guided us into the show room as well as to the production hall. We also visited the new factory some kilometers away where the R&D-department develops new light products.
In the afternoon both groups, the LUG-managers as well as the ICV members started to work on four subjects:
- Integration of customers’ needs
- Market design for 2020
- Motivational system for the employees
- New organisation with better information structure/ controlling
This interesting day ended with a guided walk in the city of Zielona Góra and a great dinner in the cellars of the town-hall.
The next day the four teams continued working on their subjects and in the afternoon they presented the first results. With lots of sun in our hearts and in the sky we left Zielona Góra. The next work group meeting will be in September in Berlin.
Thanks to the LUG-Management for this interesting days.
