Presented by: Johan Skåntorp Vice President Global Product Planning Electrolux Floor Care and Small Appliances
Three years ago, Electrolux, the world’s leading manufacturer of household appliances, instituted a series of steps to change the organizational culture from being engineering-driven to truly customer-focused. The company now uses a series of innovation metrics to measure unmet consumer needs and how well new products meet them; how products are developed and launched; and whether the right product and marketing managers are in the right functional positions to support these larger initiatives.
In this online event, Johan Skåntorp, Vice President Global Product Planning for Electrolux’s Floor Care and Small Appliances division, will share what his organization is doing to examine the total business impact of its innovation initiatives, including how bottom-up portfolio management supports top-down business goals and the importance of evaluating the future product portfolio using direct, quantifiable measurements to determine projected growth from new products.
