THE Aboitiz Group believes having a culture of innovation will play an important role in the conglomerate’s continued growth and expansion, both in the domestic and international arenas.
Amid the company’s group-wide digital transformation, over 100 Aboitiz team leaders converged at the Aboitiz Leaders Conference (LeadCon) 2019 with the theme “Future-Proof Aboitiz: Driving a Culture of Innovation.” It was held last Jan. 17 at Bonifacio Global City in Metro Manila.
Annually, Aboitiz leaders undergo executive leadership development programs designed to impart knowledge and sharpen competencies in the six Aboitiz leadership dimensions: mentoring and developing, fostering teamwork, courageous authenticity, achieving results, sustainable growth, and integrity.
“How can Aboitiz remain evergreen and continue to be competitive in a volatile world of disruptive trends of globalization, technological advancement, changing models, and data explosion?” Erramon I. Aboitiz, Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc. (AEV) president and chief executive officer challenged the company’s leaders. “To my mind, it is by driving a culture of innovation,” Aboitiz stressed.
This year, the Aboitiz LeadCon featured academic Gregory La Blanc, chair of the Berkeley-Haas Professional Faculty at the University of California, Berkeley-Haas School of Business. La Blanc discussed the innovation process--origination, evaluation, and execution. (PR)
