Are you the enthusiastic, talented intern we’re looking for?
Have you ever felt that the developers of a product you bought did not include the best possible combination of product features? It is likely that they had to make value / cost trade-offs that resulted in the product you bought. Now, you have the chance to directly contribute to the optimization of customer value and costs across the range of Philips products, services and solutions!
Design for eXcellence (DfX) is a Philips wide program that aims to reach an optimal customer value by making data-driven value and cost trade-offs based on market and customer input in a multidisciplinary cross functional setting. In this setting, important function like Marketing, Development, Quality, Operations and Procurement collaborate and challenge each other to reach clever and valuable design solutions at the best possible direct costs and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Within Philips, a range of sourcing initiatives have been earmarked as candidates for a DfX focused convention to redesign products, services and solutions with a fresh look from different functions in a series of pressure cooker workshops. The outcome: improved value for our customers and lower cost for our organization. Both project management and stakeholder management are required.
· You expected to:
o Support the build-up & lead in qualifying the value optimization opportunities, in order to select those that will contribute most to Philips,
o Design and build the needed global training tools that are needed to support any DfX in any sector
o Participate in the different workshops and support the DfX Project Management Office (PMO) in creating more transparent reporting and in-depth analyzes of the different DfX value and process optimization opportunities within Philips.
o Analyze the progress of the overall DfX program and the savings resulting from the program, assuring the right level of management summaries and qualitative reviews, and additionally propose, implement and support improvements while running the planning.
o Analyze the needed communication and create content for communication for a Philips wide collaboration; including reports up to the top level within Philips.
You expected to take a leading role in this project to help build the rationale underpinning the need to change and to define what the required organizational changes and implementation timelines are.
