Ideas and innovation day at Klauke!


The 15 February 2017 finally came around and more than 40 participants met punctually at Klauke in Remscheid. 

Following a tool demonstration and a company tour, the guests were welcomed by Mr Stawitzki, Head of HR, and Ms Karstens, Idea Manager.

Two Klauke apprentices then presented some ideas which they had experienced and prepared with Ms Karstens.  Subsequently, Ms Sypien and Mr Hippert provided some insights into the “lean” activities at Klauke.

The invited guest speakers were next up after the lunch and networking break.

The proceedings were started by Ms Kersting and Herr Rausch, the CEOs of the German Institute for Idea and Innovation Management, with a very interesting talk about future-oriented idea management and the significance of benchmarks. Then, Ms Barkow, Idea Manager at Diehl Aircabin, and Mr Peters, Idea Manager at Diebold Nixdorf, presented their KPIs and systems. 

The day was rounded off by a speech by Mr Kondic (Idea Management Centre) who emphasised the importance of social media in idea management.  

We would like to thank all speakers and guests for this most successful exchange of experience and communication!
