“For me, innovation is a thrill and we need to have a culture of innovation and collaboration,” insists Lalit Sethi, engineering manager at ZF. His team is responsible for looking into future technologies. What is out there in 10 years? What about in 30? What is being asked for? What are our competitors developing?
“Whoever wants to be on the top needs to lead, and leadership means innovating not only to be ahead of your competitors, but also to create a safer and more environmentally conscious society through our products.”
While events like Inspiration World are an important and fun reminder about the power of collaboration and creative thinking, ZF is pushing this refreshed way of working in how people approach their jobs every day. Everyone can be more innovative and target-focused regardless of their title or place in the company and that contributes to an even bigger impact not only within the company, but within society as well.
When asked what innovation means to him, Lalit pauses, smiles and announces: “We can help humanity live a better life tomorrow, that’s what innovation means to me.”
