Die Meetings haben uns aufgezeigt, wie wichtig es ist, sich aus dem oft stressigen Alltag herauszunehmen, etablierte Prozesse zu hinterfragen und mit Kollegen abteilungsübergreifend im Zuge eines gemeinsamen, wertfreien Brainstormings Raum für neue Ideen und Ansätze zu schaffen. Besonders wertvoll empfanden wir den Impuls zum Aufbau und der Implementierung eines internen Ideenmanagements.

Vermutlich das größte Netzwerk was ich mir vorstellen kann - egal welchen Kontakt / Lieferant o.ä. man benötigt - EEN kann Intros machen, in jedem Land der Welt, maritim und nicht maritim.
