To achieve the objectives set out in the strategic plan “La Poste 2020: Conquering the Future”, Philippe Whal, the Group’s CEO, is relying on an ambitious intrapreneurship program and on the company’s employees to invent the business lines that will make the Group successful tomorrow.
For the fourth consecutive year, the Foresight & Innovation Department is leading the intrapreneurship program “20 projects for 2020”. A five-step selection process sets the pace for the program:
Step 1 – Voting
By team, project leaders have 90 days to convince postal workers to vote for their project.
Step 2 – Expertise
To validate the strength of the proposal, the team’s potential and the relevance of the project, a telephone interview is organized with an expert in support and startup development.
Step 3 – The bootcamp
The selected projects are then challenged during 3 days of bootcamp.
Step 4 – The final jury
The teams that successfully completed the bootcamp present their project to Group executives and external experts from the French entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem.
Step 5 – The implementation of the project
Once the project is validated, the team will be seconded full-time over a period of 3 to 12 months.
