To this end, we have a well-defined innovation strategy that is aligned with our business strategy. Our main objective is to use innovation to maximize the value of our assets, achieve competitive advantages, become more efficient and stand out.
The strategic innovation plan, developed in 2018, materializes through five fundamental pillars: anticipation and exploration, collaboration and mainstreaming, focus and impact, totality and ecosystem, and agility and speed. A series of transversal topics and related programs have been established in key innovation areas such as: management based on data, mobility, automation and sustainability. Venture Lab was created as a way to incubate new digital businesses.
The high level of maturity achieved in the innovation process — which responds to business challenges via an open innovation ecosystem and through continuous development of a culture of innovation — has allowed us to develop the skills we need for emerging technologies and to detect digital business opportunities.
