The FAST Logistics Group, one of the Philippines’ largest and widest-reaching logistics firms, has partnered with the Embiggen Group to build its foundation in corporate innovation.
In the first part of the engagement, Embiggen trained 100 of the logistics firm’s executives, innovation project leaders, managers, and team members in the fundamentals of corporate innovation.
The participants were also introduced to the various models of corporate innovation and examined successful corporate innovation case studies.
They were trained by Embiggen’s Founding CEO & Managing Partner Rolan Marco Garcia. Embiggen Innovation Institute Managing Director and Global Innovation Management Institute Innovation Master Masaki Mitsuhashi also trained the participants.
Building a foundation in corporate innovation is the first step in developing a company’s capability to innovate. A company cannot successfully execute innovation projects without first having a team with a holistic understanding of innovation.
FAST Logistics Group’s commitment to innovation paves the way to a bright and exciting future in the crucial logistics industry in the Philippines.
