100 innovations for 2020

France

Every year 2,000 to 3,000 Group employees get involved in the ENGIE Innovation Trophies. They are the ones who innovate and connect with others.

Our innovators  are passionate people who want to make their initiatives known in order to secure resources to take them further, to help improve the future. All entities of ENGIE (twenty-five Business Units), including the Corporate and Research Centers, contribute with several of their best initiatives.

By Florence Cariou,

Project Director, pilot of the Innovation Trophies


The lockdown came a fortnight beforethe Group selection seminar when 40 Innovation representatives were to meet in Paris for two days, to review the 165 best files chosen by the BUs. The seminar took place on schedule, but virtually, in MS Teams and Klaxoon. There were 63 of us involved, 27 of whom were actively involved in the organization and animation.

It was an invigorating experience, with the additional benefit of accelerating the adoption of Teams and other digital tools, since then replicated for other seminars.

Two major lessons learnt are related to the virtues of positive reinforcement: 

1) Co-construction with many participants is really a key factor of success.

2)  Preview: guided tour-training to allow all participants to visualize the agenda and learn to use the tools


After this selection, the 52 finalists were invited to be coached remotely on Teams, by external expert trainers, on the basis of self-organization and auto-regulation principles. All the teams joined in, involving over 100 actors in this stage, elivered creative materials, and produced sophisticated videos from their homes revealing their talent as actors or artists.

A third learning emerged from this experience:crowd-editing is made comfortable and effective by mastered collaboration tools and sharing a common  goal. Thus, we have collected and organized this brochure, derived online publications, and the Grand Jury project presentations, involving over 150 people. 

The Grand Jury also took place online, with a stage on Zoom and jury deliberations and voting privately on Teams. A complex set-up, but with the help of ENGIE IT and innovation back-office crew, the 20 internal and external members of the Grand Jury were quickly onboarded and enjoyed the experience. 


"Thanks to the unwavering commitment of all of our project owners to make outstanding pitches and the agile intervention of the invisible back office squad who solved every issue on the fly during the event, the Grand Jury had a trulyrewarding and memorable experience. 
A truly professional team achievement !"
