Fujitsu Day och graduatemodul i München


No Comments

Hallå där!

 

Nu har det snart gått 2 månader sedan jag började på Fujitsu och jag vet inte var tiden har tagit vägen. Förra veckan var fullspäckad så här kommer en liten recap om vad jag sysslade med.

 

På tisdagen satte jag mig på tåget till Göteborg för att vara med på Fujitsu Day. I år var temat “Effektivisering och affärsutveckling – Skapa maximal nytta med digital co-creation” och det inkluderade flertalet seminarier och föreläsningar. Mässan besöktes av Fujitsuanställda från flera olika kontor samt av våra kunder som fick möjlighet att höra om och diskutera våra tjänster samt klämma på lite av den hårdvara vi erbjuder. De seminarier som jag tog del av handlade om hur robotar påverkar kvalitet och kostnader, hur vi kan omvandla medarbetares kompetens och kreativitet till kundnytta samt hur vi kan dra fram kreativiteten i oss själva med hjälp av olika verktyg. Dagen avslutades med en inspirationsföreläsning av Renata Chlumska, den professionella äventyraren som bland annat var första svenska kvinnan att bestiga Mount Everest, vilken var helt fantastisk – vilken inspirerande kvinna!

 

Direkt när Fujitsu Day var över begav jag mig till flygplatsen för att åka till München. Det var dags för vår andra modul i traineeprogrammet där vi skulle få lära oss om Sense and Respond. Om ni har hört om Lean förut så kan man säga att Sense and Respond är Fujitsus version av det där vi applicerar teorin mer praktiskt på vår egen organisation. På workshopen deltog graduates från Sverige, Finland och Tyskland. Det är alltid kul att träffa graduates från de andra länderna och höra om vad de får göra för spännande om dagarna! Vi lärde oss mycket under dagen och framför allt tar jag med mig nya verktyg för att lösa problem tillsammans som ett team. Vi fick i uppgift att lösa några problem hemma på kontoret i Kista så vi får se vad vi hittar för problem de kommande veckorna!

Nästa vecka bär det av till München igen, denna gång för Fujitsu Forum. Mer om det får ni höra i nästa inlägg!

Livet som graduate på Fujitsu


No Comments

Hallå där!

Då var det äntligen dags för oss nya graduates på Fujitsu att introducera oss. I år är vi 3 personer som börjat på programmet; Amanda Enocksson, Malin Åberg och Eduardo Do Amaral. Vi har alla olika bakgrunder då Amanda pluggat till civilingenjör inom design och produktframtagning med en master i innovation på KTH, Malin har läst ekonomi och innovation på Handelshögskolan i Göteborg och slutligen har vi Eduardo som läste Service Management kandidaten i Köpenhamn men som sedan hamnade i Uppsala för att ta en master i International Business.

Vi har nu jobbat på Fujitsu i en månad och har redan fått vara med om både äventyr och hårt jobb! I två dagar under vår första vecka åkte vi iväg till London för att träffa andra graduates i Europa – utöver oss från Sverige var där folk från Spanien, UK, Irland, Finland och Frankrike. Under vistelsen blev vi introducerade för företaget och fick lära oss allt om Fujitsus strategi, vad vi strävar mot och hur vi ser på framtiden. Vi fick såklart även mingla massor med de andra graduatsen och påbörjade även den första modulen i vårt traineeprogram. Den modulen kommer att fortsätta redan i slutet av oktober då vi återigen får resa iväg till andra delar av Europa!

Hittills trivs vi alla väldigt bra här på Fujitsu. Att bli inkastad i en roll där man knappt kan någonting från början är läskigt, men som en del av traineeprogrammet får vi ett otroligt stöd från både chefer och kollegor. Här finns möjlighet till både interna och externa utbildningar och så länge du visar framfötterna och är tydlig med att du vill utvecklas så ges alla möjligheter du kan tänka dig!

Vi återkommer snart igen med mer spännande information om våra olika roller och vad vi faktiskt gör och kommer att få göra här om dagarna. Vi ser fram emot de kommande två åren som graduates och vi ska försöka dela med oss så mycket som möjligt av våra äventyr!

/Amanda, Malin och Eduardo

Dustin Expo


No Comments

Well, more than 6 months have passed since I started my graduate position in product sales. During these months my sales role has developed, I have had the opportunity to coordinate a learning event in Gothenburg which was exciting as well as getting my own customers to take care of. I learn something new every time I get to meet a customer, or all the different internal strategic meetings we have in our team.

Anyhow, on to what I wanted to write to you about. Dustin Expo! Which was hosted in Globen last week. Me and some of my sales-collegues had the opportunity to represent Fujitsu at this huge IT fair where we got to meet a lot of exciting customers as well as I had the opportunity to practice how much I have learned during these past months regarding the products and what the Fujitsu brand stands for. The picture below shows a quite smart way to showcase our vein-reader technique Palm Secure that is connected to our candy machine.

Other than that we Graduates are super excited to see all the applicants for the next Graduate positions. Hope to see some of you readers there!

 

Take care!

Event in Manchester!


No Comments

Hello everyone!

I want to share with you a really interesting event that us Fujitsu Graduates got to experience recently. It started with us traveling to Manchester for a training session where we met up with our fellow Graduates from the UK, France and the Netherlands.

The training session was called Personal Impact and was designed to help us develop our self awareness. This was a one day event where we had two trainers that specialize in this type of training. The training was about understanding the different personality types that the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test is build on. For each personality type they made us play a game to help us understand each type better and then we had to guess which type in each category we thought described us the best. You can see the 8 different personal types in the picture here below:

After playing the different games, everyone got their real results from the Myers-Briggs test that each of us had to take few weeks before the training. It was really interesting to see if you perceived you to have the same personality as the test results gave back or if you had other ideas which category fitted you better. For me it was really interesting to be able to compare what the Myers-Briggs test result gave and the personality type I perceived myself to have. It gave me a lot of information about myself that I can use to help develop myself in the future.

After a full day of training we went out to dinner at an amazing pizza place in downtown Manchester. As you can see the pizzas were really good!

The Dynamics trainee position


No Comments

Hello again!

In this post I will tell you about what me and Stefania are working with at the Gothenburg office. Both of us got a position within our Business Application Service (BAS) where our team works with selling, implementing and supporting the ERP system Microsoft Dynamics. The majority of us are based in Gothenburg but the rest are spread out across Sweden and we also have a group of people working in India. Since both our team and also our customers are spread out, we have had the opportunity to travel a lot within Sweden, which we think is exciting! During our trainee programme, the plan for us is to try out the different positions within the group. This varies from project management, business consultancy, service delivery manager and sales, and thereafter see which role think is most interested to work with after the programme.

A part from testing and learning the different positions, we also work with different internal projects. Lean is a big part of the Fujitsu way and something that interest both of us. Therefore, our internal projects for the Dynamics group revolves a lot around that. One of the projects we are working with right now is to implement an electronic Commcell for our team, which is a management tool used to help visualize and communicate important information in a good and efficient way. Another project involves the workshops which our consultants have together with the customer. We are supposed to investigate whether we can make them more efficient by creating a more standardized workshop structure. Both of these projects gives us a great overview of the performance of the team as well as deepening the knowledge of the implementation process.

Here are some pictures from our first months!

Have a nice weekend everybody! 🙂

Training and getting to know the other graduates


No Comments

Hi everyone!

Long time no blogging, but the Fujitsu Graduates are back from a 2 month blog-break. We have all been busy with our different projects in our business areas, but now it’s time to share the last experience we had together when all of us had a training session in Stockholm! We also had the pleasure of welcoming our graduate colleagues from France, Belgium and Holland. Let me tell you about the days that we spend together!

The training session we had was about Sense and Respond, which is a Lean course, it aims at teaching how to do things in a more efficient way. Always looking at different processes and see how they can be done more efficient. But before the training all the Graduates came to Stockholm, Kista and we went for dinner and some drinks at the ice-bar even though there was a snow storm outside.

At the day of the training Anthony, our trainer, went through different tools within Lean. The day was great fun as it was very interactive, we even went through real work problems where we could apply the knowledge. For example, “10 second lean” which is about finding little things you do in your daily job ineffective and see how you can make this more effectively. This does not only save the organization money but also saves you time. Mine was for example that instead of refilling my water glass 3 times a day, I can instead bring my own water bottle and simply fill it once. A minor detail, but in the long run it saves money and time. This gave us tools which we can use in the future to argue for change and now which arguments are the most important. Furthermore we did some group exercises where we had to find the best way to bounce a ball between us in the least time possible. We ended up being the fastest group so far!

After the training we took the metro in to the city to eat a well-deserved meal as well as enjoying the city. We showed them around Old town and we even drank some mead.

The learning experience was really good and I had so much fun getting to know all the other graduates a bit better!

Until next time, have a good one!

Lean Management at Fujitsu


No Comments

Hello again!

Hope you’ve followe d and enjoyed our first five Fujitsu posts (one from each of our five trainees in Sweden)! In this post I’ll update on the great Lean Foundations course I recently attended at our Gothenburg offices.

Fujitsu’s Japanese roots are visible in many of our ways of working and this is especially true when it comes to the use of Lean management. For this reason, a three-day introductory course is available for employees of Fujitsu who are interesteLean Champions!d in working with Lean in their teams. The course was a fantastic mix of activities, lectures and games and was attended by both Fujitsu colleagues and Master students from Chalmers University.

The introductory course covered key areas of Lean such as; Visual Steering, Waste, Standard Work, 5S – Workplace Organization and much more. The content was really valuable for me in my role and I’m glad I’ve been able to take advantage of th

Event at Kolmården


1 Comment

Hi everyone, Camilla Wigren here, the fifth and final Graduate at Fujitsu Sweden! All the graduates are, as you might have read, placed in different business areas within Fujitsu. I am placed in the best business area, product sales! From the first day everyone welcomed me with open arms and my colleagues were happy to show me around and help me with whatever I had a problem with and answer whatever questions I had (and still have). So far the last couple of weeks have passed super quickly and I have had the opportunity to follow really exciting business opportunities, sales meetings as well as going to different locations promoting the company, which makes me think of how much I have learned during these different processes, and the graduate programme has only just started!

 

But now, on to what I actually meant to write about in this post (If you have any questions regarding my position as a Graduate, feel free to comment), the event me and my team went to last week at Kolmården! This event was held by Ingram which is a distributor that we work closely with. Fujitsu was one of the main sponsors which meant that we had a booth where we displayed our products and had the opportunity to talk to almost 300 representatives from different resellers. The theme of the event was Green IT, which was very suitable for Fujitsu, since this is a big part of our philosophy. Furthermore there were lots of seminars that touched upon the subject of sustainability. During the day I really got to test my skills regarding what I have learned so far about Fujitsu as a company as well as how the products are made and how we differ from our competitors. It was a lot of fun, and challenging, to talk to all the different resellers and hear their views on what Green IT is and their opinions on Fujitsu.

 

After the intensive day we got to enjoy a great dinner where I had the opportunity to meet even more interesting people and network some more. The day after was a bit more relaxed and ended with a panel discussion which my manager participated in, as well as other representatives from other vendors. Very interesting!

 

I hope this gave you a glimpse of what life can be like as a sales associate in the graduate programme!

Fujitsu Day in Gothenburg


No Comments

Hi, my name is Gizem Bozkus and I am one of five graduates at Fujitsu Sweden. I have been with the company for almost three months now and it has been great so far! The past few months have been a combination of personal development, learning about the company as a whole and getting started on new projects.

Just last week all graduates took part in “Fujitsu Day” in Gothenburg, which involved several really interesting seminars about different services we provide our customers. The day was really valuable, packed with lots of information and even the chance to try out some of our new products and innovations! However, on the way home from Gothenburg our train broke down for several hours. More precisely, it ended up taking us 6 extra hours to get back to Stockholm via a detour. But hey, at least we graduates had plenty of time to get to know each other better over free sandwiches and now we can also say we have been to Falköping 😉

Have a nice day everyone!

Was happy to be stuck with these lovely ladies.
