October 21, 2007
Saw this clip in the morning and fell in love with it. Very heart warming and at the same time it is about something I am really interested in - renewable energy. I believe that renewable energy is the way of the future that is, unfortunately, underappreciated in most parts of the world. Having watched the clip I then looked up the company's website and found out that the company not only deals with the wind but also many other renweable energy sources such as photovoltaics and bioenergy.
THIS IS MY DREAM COMPANY!!!
Digging deeper into the site I noticed that the company's philosophy consists of many elements which I have become famaliar with in this past two weeks such as trust, innovation, commitment to the environment and entrepreneurial spirit. I then begin to wonder if the company follows any of the excellence models or not and since the company is based in germany I suspect the model would be EFQM. After about an hour of searching the best I could come up with is an article written in German that contains the words EFQM and Voltwerk AG (the company's recently changed its name a few years back) and I do not think that is helping much.
I really feel strongly about working in this field and I hope I can bring "excellence" into the mix. (hmm...why do I suddenly sound like I'm writing a CV or something but anyways...)
Let's just hope it's not too late to cure mother earth.
