Les Hayman Keynote on SAP Forum 2008 Istanbul


I am sure this will be a suprise for Les Hayman. It was an honour hosting you for our keynote in Istanbul. I know it had been quite sometime until then but after listening to your keynote I just noticed that all of the observations and comments remain valid. Even getting more and more important. Some quotes:

Things have moved faster than we had anticipated.

50 years before technology followed business need – Today we have more technology today. The limiting factor is our imagination.

Technology as competitive weapon.

How do you drive for change?

Toyota: 400 suggestions for a change in the company. Culture in the company…

Change the go to market…

If it is not broken you should break it.

Mision and vision statement: Turn them into reality.

At given time 70% of the customers are ready to give you up.

Meeting the expectations.

Manager has one role: You have to create an enviroment……

How do you create pro managers?

Smart young people – to innovation. innovation is “Hard focused work”.

It wa fun remembering the keynote.

Best regards from Istanbul. 🙂
