#bsl2014 keynote – change is an opportunity

Marc Priestley F1 mclaren
Change is an opportunity
Being efficient rather than cutbacks
In the image. Overalls up. Cap. Watch. Brand exposure on the best team and the best driver. Small steps bring in the big companies.
Change the way you think about everything. Re-analyse everything you do. Is it as efficient as It could be?
Every person, every job.
Review everything all the time looking to make it lean. Leverage technology.
Consistent improvement affects outcomes.
Tiniest little thing had a knock on effect for everything that followed.
People only talk about things when they go wrong.

New cars and new technologies. First started 5 years ago.
Resistant to change when people are already successful in what they do. (Baby boomers)
F1 tech was a decade old. Gen X started to look at being always at the forefront. More relevant to the car industry as a whole. Filter down to forecourt products.
Big teams. Successful did not want to change. Smaller teams could not afford. The younger generation pushed harder and worked into decision positions.
Hybrid engines in F1. To stop holding back the retail sectors adoption by using F1 as the R&D sector.
A change for the future to ensure we have a future.
