Background: At Pahwa Group, innovation both in technology as well as business processes has been the driver behind its growth.
The management thinks that to maintain the leadership position. "innovation" cannot not be the exclusive responsibility of the top management. For the company to have a Durable Competitive Advantage, the innovation DNA has to run throughout the organisation.
The initiative to institutionalize innovation was taken in 2012 and all employees, from the top of the pyramid to the bottom of the pyramid, were sensitized and trained on "Innovation" through workshops, brainstorming sessions and interactions to encourage and motivate "innovative thinking".
The objective of Institutionalizing Innovation is to make Pahwa Group a genuinely innovative company, which means that every single member of Pahwa Group “thinks and acts innovatively” every day.
A robust process of collecting all “ideas”, reviewing and implementing is in place supported by a strong Reward and Recognition program to honour the “Innovatotors”.
All ideas which satisfy the Pahwa Group’s Innovation Vision Statement are reviewed, accepted for implementation, implemented and rewarded. The ideas may be related to technology, products , manufacturing, business processes, customer reach/delivery/retention and people management.
