There’s a multi-billion dollar opportunity to make the global supply chain more efficient, yet agile iteration can be difficult for many corporations. In this session, James adopted a strategic use case and investments perspective and shared about how corporate consortiums can help find new technologies for the maritime industry, scale them to meet their target audience’s needs, and develop meaningful solutions.
James also spoke about relooking at the way employee performance is measured, leveraging on Strategic Mindset (Forward thinking), Collaboration, Stewardship (P&L), Creativity and Mindfulness (respect, dignity, civic-mindedness). He believes that collaboration is core to innovation and leads the team in exploring potential partnerships in maritime sector.
