Siemens is transforming it's own business and reiventing itself,
it's an impressive global company with internal communities and communication exchange that creates new worlds for their employees, regarding how they see different countries, different cultures and their own values. Now, for instance, Siemens has allowed the home office, globally, and while this is nothing quite new for US or Europe, it's quite breath taking for some Arabic or African countries.
In the technology side, they are also betting in quite cool innovations, they have the mindsphere, with the digital twins for industry, for instance, or mendix, a low code platform that will allow anyone to create any app they want, without coding knowledge.
I don't know, I get quite impressed with a lot of things they are doing.

“It was like being with a parent that didn’t really want us”, says CEO of GE Appliances, Kevin Nolan. He explained: “The one hope everyone had was that Haier bought us because they wanted us, and we were curious to find out what that would mean”. 4 years later, we visited to find out how GEA was doing. Getting to talk to them was harder than we thought: “Our managers and executives are currently working on the assembly lines.” They are doing what!?
