About the session

We are conscious that the corporate DNA is heavily rooted in engineering rigour, where imperfection and uncertainty lead to catastrophe. Product failure is unacceptable and inexcusable in our industry. Our products, by their very nature, are complex, often require colossal investment,have a lifecycle spanning decades and operate in a heavily regulated industry. As an organisation, we are risk-averse. Our own complexity slows us down. Building new business from the ground is something we already do - but it is not our core strength.
