Strengthening innovation collaboration across the global R&D.
Valmet is a Finnish corporation dating back over 220 years and is the global leader in board and paper, pulp, energy, and automation. Valmet develops mill-wide technologies and industrial machines for board, paper, and pulp mills and bio-energy plants with a strong focus on sustainability across 30 countries worldwide.
In 2017 Board of Innovation was selected to design and develop a tailored Innovation program for Valmet to instill an intrapreneurial way of working across the global organization (12,000+ employees).
Valmet’s second global Innovation Pathways program nearly completed. This innovation training concept works better than I ever imagined, Valmet participants seem enthusiastic and customers more than happy. The plan is to continue full speed in the coming years!
