This company with more than 1.300 employees in Berlin (Germany) and Szczecin (Poland) intends to strengthen thei controlling - a perfect task for our international work group.
Get-to-know meeting (may 2018)
The meeting started with a great hello to everybody, arriving the evening before. We met in the Skybar of our hotel and enjoyed the summer evening.
On Friday morning the participants met at AutoDOC warehouse Berlin. There we had a guided tour through the warehouse of AutoDOC.
Then, after lunch, we had the plenum meeting to learn to know each other and our guest-giver AutoDOC
For dinner we have been invited to a well known restaurant in the heart of Berlin at the Potsdamer Platz
During the next months the 4 teams met at least monthly via Skype, some even more (one team had a personel meeting in Budapest) to work on their topics.
In July Herwig visited Emilia in Szczecin to have a look at the new AutoDOC-warehouse
Exchange meeting in Vienna (September 2018)
The ICV-collegues met end of september in Vienna to present the actual results, to learn the results of the other teams, to give advices, hints; the four topics are very much interwoven...
It was a short, but hard working saturday without any social activities...
Results-workshop (november 2018), Berlin
The 4 teams presented discussed finally their results and generated a presentation.
Saturday morning: the four teams presented thei results in attendance of the owners of AutoDOC. Of course, we cannot report the results of our work. But we have given to the owners so many ideas, recommendations etc. that they have been really satisfied.
It was an inspiring and extremely collegial collaboration with the ICV's international work group, which resulted in numerous valuable pointers for the further development of our strategy, processes and our controlling systems.
