CONTEXT

Together with our partner, Ways of Working (WoW), we have been working with Airbus in Toulouse as it seeks to “re-tool” its 8,000 engineers towards a new business model of simplicity and focus. The remarkable success of this company itself constitutes a barrier to change, yet changing market conditions and the maturity of this company’s fleet demand a leaner approach to the entire engineering function.

PROCESS

We facilitated the first of a series of large-scale design events supported by an on-site Acceleration Zone to bring our design process to higher-frequency and lower-intensity planning and design decisions.

RESULT

We are transforming this company’s ways-of-working from bureaucratic to entrepreneurial and from complex to simple.
