Kegan Fisher founded SOLS with the goal to make “mass-customised footwear affordable and more accessible to everyone’” She enlightens us on how additive manufacturing is changing not only the manufacturing industry, but also the interactions and dynamics within organisations. In addition, she explains some of the challenges that start-ups face while trying to grow their businesses.
It’s crucial that organisations understand that innovation alone is not enough to contribute to their success in industry. They need to be open minded, flexible and, most importantly, willing to change. This change is not exclusive to the integration of additive manufacturing as part of the manufacturing process, but is also vital in the organisational structure.
Kegan Fisher is speaking at Manucore’s Manufacturing Leadership Forum USA in Houston on 7-8 November 2017.
