Most companies have a suggestion box. But it shouldn’t stop there. What are the experiences with topics like bootcamps, co-creation, challenge-driven innovation, etc.? What are the different approaches to take depending on your context?
Alcatel-Lucent Belgium is celebrating this year it’s 130th anniversary of its foundation in 1882 as “Bell Telephone Manufacturing Company”.
Rudi is in charge of a business plan competition for Alcatel-Lucent employees in EMEA, the so-called “Entrepreneurial Boot Camp”. Next to that, he coaches teams during the incubation phase, and he also does the marketing and communication for Bell Labs Belgium. Prior to his current role, Rudi worked between 2004 and 2009 as Triple Play marketing manager for Alcatel where he focused on IPTV, advertising & entertainment applications. Between 2002 and 2004, he worked in the DSL consultancy team of Alcatel's Fixed Communications Group where he worked with operators in Central and Eastern Europe. Between 2000 and 2002, he was product manager in an internal venture on the Alcatel 5742 Personalised Service Selector (PSS), an innovative software platform which enables applications over DSL networks.
Rudi will discuss the lessons learned after over 6 years of Alcatel-Lucent bootcamps.
