Piotr Wróbel

Innovation Officer and EcoSystem Manager Nokia

Piotr started his career in telecommunications in 2006 joining Siemens having 3 years industry background. He spent his last 16 years working in the Product Structure Management, changing roles and positions from Basic Data Manager through Line Management and ending up as Digitalization and Transformation Leader. That gave him an opportunity to get to know how Nokia products are structured to be offered and sold to our customers and how Nokia’s ecosystem of tools and processes is supporting end to end process of products development until delivery and revenue recognition. Participation in many projects including SAP S/4 deployment at Nokia, gave him a chance to work with many teams and levels of expertise. Responsibility on BG level for some of those, let him develop better business view on requirements specification, tracking and results presentation. He is focused on continuous improvements according to Kaizen methodology and working hard on development of his own skills both soft and hard.

That might be the implication of active engagement into Scouts community (ZHA) – Piotr is a Club Director in Wroclaw, Program coordinator in Polish Union and Trans European Division and recently started Instructor Course: PLA (Pathfinder Leadership Award). Privately, having 3 kids, he is (yet still) convinced that homeschooling makes the difference. Teaching and inspiring youth (scouts and own children) is giving him the joy and a feeling of being capable to shape the future.

His perception of Innovations and ECOsystem Manager position at Nokia, he is holding nowadays, is fully aligned with that direction. “Through innovations we are working on future of telecommunications and not only connecting people but machines as well. And all of that is happening in Nokia Wroclaw and starts with people either having vision or enough of inefficiency.” – Piotr said. He would like to encourage everyone in TC Wroclaw to look around and question any inefficiency (if) observed. Piotr can support innovators in changing their vision into project that can be implemented in Nokia Wroclaw and beyond – Nokia worldwide or outside of Nokia organization e.g. city of Wroclaw. The future is in our hands.
