Schneider Electric has debuted its new “Schneider is on” company strategy, focusing on five key priorities to achieve its 2020 vision.
The priorities are: do more; digitise, innovate, step up; and simplify.

“Our ambition is to serve our customers better by listening more closely to them, thus understanding their challenges and aligning our actions with their needs accordingly,” says Eric Leger, country president for southern Africa at Schneider Electric.

He says the organisation’s new strategy is about doing more for customers by connecting with them digitally; being a leader in technology and business innovation; raising the bar of expectations on every single Schneider Electric employee – starting with management, in order to become a high performance organisation; and making it easier for customers to trade with the business, so as to understand Schneider Electric complexity and collaborate more effectively.

“With this programme, we start a new chapter in the evolution of our organisation,” Leger adds.

He lists the five enablers of the strategy as Schneider Electric’s transactional business, field services business, regional expansion, mining segment, as well as utility segment.
