Future Readiness

When Sandra Hauser took over the management of the Transformation and Technology division at Zurich Switzerland, she found a „working factory“ with outdated systems, dysfunctional processes and sluggish, hierarchical structures. In collaboration with her team, she launched the „Future Readiness“ initiative to develop the area from „Service Provider“ to „Transformation Driver“. With the introduction of flatter hierarchies, the use of modern, agile working methods such as co-creation, consulting processes and a team-based bonus system, the realignment of the division is taking shape. Jointly defined „New Way of Working“ principles help to drive change in the area as well as in „Dancing with the System“, cooperation with other classically hierarchically organized areas and structures, in order to influence and convince them of more agile forms of cooperation in the grass roots approach.
