‘’Develandoo is not an ordinary company. This is exactly what attracted me and the key reason I answered ‘yes, with great pleasure’ when I was asked to serve on its Board. Develandoo’s whole existence, mission, and vision, revolve around innovation. Starting from the very sector it serves to the business model it employs,” says Dr. Konis. Its team and the way it is managed, everything falls beyond the traditional and the normal. If one adds to these the passion of its leadership team and the commitment and vision of its CEO and founder Albert Stepanyan, then it becomes obvious that Develandoo has all ingredients necessary for its success.’’
According to our newest board member, it is both a pleasure and a challenge to support Develandoo’s tremendous efforts and vision.
‘’I will be trying to do this through advice on creative approaches, management of complexity, soft systems management, strategy formulation and implementation, growth strategies and improvements on workflow. I will do my very best to use my expertise and knowledge to support Develandoo’s challenges. I am a firm believer of optimization of each and every task we perform in companies and our lives in general. This requires quality thinking both at the individual and the collective (team) level. Fortunately, there are techniques and tools that have been successfully used. Introducing these tools to Delevandoo can have a very positive impact on these issues’’.
