xpd global, soon-to-be an exponential organization

Did you know that at xpd global we have a team dedicated to innovation? We are working hard to become an exponential organization!

Learn more about this initiative from Fabián Noyola, New Ventures & Bizz Models Director at xpd global.

The Innovation Team

1. Hello, Fabian! In a post on our LinkedIn, we introduced the Innovation team to the public and talked about your goal: supporting the personal and professional development of xpd global’s talents, giving them the necessary tools to execute projects that can improve their processes in a creative way, boosting their productivity.

At xpd global, we don’t have any employees – we’re all leaders and talents

Tell us more details, please. Since when does xpd global have a team dedicated to Innovation? Can you tell us a little bit about the beginning of it all? How did the idea of having an Innovation team come about?

The innovation project is approximately five to six years old, since we were epGroup.

It started with Ana García, a talent from our Knowledge & Training team, as a response to the organization’s need to gradually position ourselves as one of the most innovative logistics organizations in the market.

It had the name “Innovartners”, looking for talents to be the innovative colleagues/partners of the organization.

Within this initiative, several activities were carried out, such as ideation challenges and other projects and workshops focused on activating the creative DNA of talents, in order to create ideas of value for the organization and for them to feel heard.

Subsequently, I was hired with the mission of creating new business models and evolving the way we were implementing different – and new – methodologies to nurture our business model and product offering.

Naturally, these same activities led me to be part of the innovation team and to evolve, together, the way we were working, until we created what we know today as the Innovation Academy.

The “Exponential Organizations” initiative

2. And about the “exponential organizations” initiative… What is the idea and where do we want to go with this project?

This project begins with a curiosity of the directors to explore this methodology.

I had the opportunity to take a course to learn it and also learn how to implement it within the organization.

The main challenge was to be able to understand what the characteristics of an exponential organization were and how we could adopt them to nurture our current business model.

From making a diagnosis and analyzing our offer in depth, we identified different actions that we were implementing little by little – from defining a purpose as an organization to focusing on new technology developments and how we are building our community.

What we are looking for is constant evolution.

To be an exponential organization is to be able to be 10 times faster and more efficient than our competitors.

The innovation team uses many of these features to develop our challenges, activities, and workshops. We want to give the organization the tools xpd global needs to keep evolving and avoid becoming obsolete.

Get to know our Innovation Academy

3. What are the other findings and achievements of the Innovation Academy over time?

Undoubtedly, the community of innovators has been growing at xpd global. With the passage of time, it has matured through the different initiatives that have been executed.

The innovation team has also been growing in talents, skills and experience.

I would like to point out some great milestones in these years:

  • We have made global initiatives and recognized creative effort.
  • We have worked with the creative mindset (softskills) to awaken the innovative DNA in talents and create ideas, accepting that failure is part of the process.
  • We have created and positioned different communication channels that have allowed us to be in contact with internal and external customers to strengthen capacity (podcasts, masterclasses, innovation wiki).
  • We have designed and replicated courses and workshops that have provided innovation tools and methodologies to talents in their daily activities (change agents, innovation leaders).
  • We are launching the Innovation Cup as a cornerstone, in which we intend to position
    the importance of developing and executing valuable ideas in the organization.
  • We are implementing innovative market methodologies and practices in the organization and deriving added value from them (for example, we already have many talents participating in a series of talks and workshops on artificial intelligence!).

Why going for a master class?

4. After organizing courses, a podcast and internal challenges, why did you choose the Master Class format for the “exponential organizations” project?

The “master class” format allows us to summarize a topic or a very useful tool in a quick and concise activity that is quite attractive for our organization.

We are looking for our talents to seek this space and actively contribute to their personal and professional development with the support of experts.

Each step of the project

5. What will the project look like, step-by-step?

The goal is to ensure a constant evolution of the organization.

The first challenge is to identify what areas of opportunity we have to truly be an exponential organization.

Then, develop objective actions to put them into practice, from any of the armed teams to get closer to that dream:

| To be a truly exponential company, growing at the same pace as technology grows.

Meet the team
