Ingenium By Celsa Group: 9000 People Pushing for Change

Ingenium is a corporate of 9000 people. And they know their talent is in-house. Yet their bureaucracy and procedures were starting to prevent them from positioning ourselves where they wanted to be.

As a response they launched Ingenium: a talent support program that includes open innovation and intrapreneurship. In Ingenium for intrapreneurs they train and foster the potential of our employees. In Ingenium Open innovation they support intrapreneurs with technology and speed coming from external companies.

In this talk, Nuria will share what they’ve done and what they’ve learned so far, as well as the reasons why Ingenium has become the channel to turn innovation into a cultural change in Celsa Group.

A good specialized crazy team is great, but 9000 people pushing for change are unbeatable!
