Magazine June 2020

New ideas and new perspectives

"Standing still is going backwards” that is also, or perhaps even especially, true for the business world. In order to succeed in the highly competitive markets and to come out on top against competitors, you have to set yourself apart. It is often not enough to do one thing really well. It is important to evolve and not to rely on the familiar and established approaches. The articles in this newsletter all focus on this topic in one way or another.

Sometimes, all it takes is to look at a familiar situation from a different perspective, like a Groz-Beckert colleague discovered while working from home. If you take a closer look at familiar surroundings, you’ll be surprised what we overlook in everyday life because we just take it for granted. When it comes to innovations or extensive changes, on the other hand, we sometimes need a little more support and input from outside. So it is great when you find the right working environment for this. And if a company has ventured into new areas, the important thing is to use and expand potential.

On this note: In this case, it’s June that makes everything new.

Prepare to be inspired. We hope you enjoy reading.
