Sartorius is one of the fastest growing bio-med companies in the World. Whilst we worked with them, they achieved their € 1Bn revenue target two years earlier than planned and had around 10.000 employees, working all over the World
With so many teams, it’s hard to say what impressed us most. Here are a few highlights:
The vibe at Sartorius’ campus is electric, because the company invested in the right tech and facilities and their employees were so dedicated to challenge every boundary.Working in their own on-site Conference Centre was only topped by the atmosphere in their canteen.
This was such a great project to showcase how OKR helps different kinds of teams in so many different ways. The diversification of teams and departments was also compounded by the international aspects. We all needed to pull together in order to keep the local initiatives in head quarters relevant and aligned with each region’s initiatives
As ever, management buy-in was a key factor. At Sartorius, we also were supported by a first-rate set of internal change-agents, who did a stellar job to help overcome every challenge, large or small.
As ever, senior management buy-in was a key factor. We also worked with some awesome internal project coordinators and change-agents. Sartorius also has a growth culture, and you could feel the ambition to go further and achieve more in each and every meeting we had their.
