Three years ago, auto supplier Brose was facing a potentially grim reality. The company’s pace no longer met the ever-increasing demands of an evolving automotive industry. Change was needed. Leadership looked back on what had made the 100-year-old company successful and zeroed in on entrepreneurship. But how would they empower 25,000 employees across 65 locations to make decisions that would drive long-term success at all levels of the organization? Lisa Basila, Brose North America’s vice president of human resources, will share Brose’s journey to “intrepreneurship”—creating a culture within a large organization that encourages employees to take risks, think outside the box and innovate rapidly. Basila will discuss how leadership addressed the initial denial and resistance that comes with any change process, and present details about approaches that have successfully fostered a more dynamic innovation culture.
