Global Knowledge Sharing

Global Knowledge Sharing

Getting together to talk technology

In a large organization like H.B. Fuller, there are hundreds of projects in progress all over the world at any given time. A project team in Latin America, for example, may be trying to address a challenge a researcher in Germany already solved. To help our global teams leverage the proven solutions that exist in other parts of the organization, we implemented a knowledge-sharing practice that enables people to get together and talk technology.

Formal “global collaboration teams” were created. Each had a focus on specific technologies, such as hot melts and polymers, or industries, such as hygiene and packaging. Now, global collaboration is a way of life at H.B. Fuller. By working together to share experiences, challenges and successes, employees around the world can deepen their expertise, which ultimately helps H.B. Fuller solve customer challenges and deliver innovative solutions more quickly.
