For the 14th consecutive year, DENSO was at the North American International Auto Show in January, and this year, our technology, company leaders and recruiting events all focused on the same thing: how we adapt to the changing automotive industry.
DENSO’s Bill Foy, senior vice president of Engineering, spoke with Automotive News about the future of DENSO and transportation:
“We are retooling our whole strategic vision as a company,” Foy said. “Hardware remains very important for a vehicle, but we’re also moving to services [that enhance mobility], which is a whole different mindset for us as a company. Second, we used to be a company that did everything internally. Now, we are looking for partners beyond what we can do today. So, we can begin to create value for the future. And we used to be very Japan-centric. Now we are very global.
Beyond DENSO’s products, Foy said, the company is working on changing the mindset of employees. “How do we get the passion out of people, the maximum value and having them working on things that excite them?”Tags: Leadership Perspectives
