The first thing I learned when I entered Bosch was the House of Orientation. It is the manifesto of what we live for, why we do what we do, and how we should do it. I have heard it millions of times, but have not felt it so strong as today.
At lunch, I talked to a colleague in our department about the current quality problem of the part we are manufacturing. The problem has many possible solutions, and despite the vast possibilities, we still haven’t found one that completely solves the problem. I couldn’t help asking, “What does our competitor do?” “They use a different chemical,” the colleague ist a chemist in charge of the issue. “So this chemical our competitor uses doesn’t lead to the problem we have?” “No, rarely. And it is of half the price as the one we are using.” Ahha, why don’t we use that??? “Because the chemical is carcinogenic and is against Bosch Values.” No Values came as sound and loud as a fact. I had a smile in my face when I told my colleague that I made the right choice, for who I work for.
