Excellence is a Process Not a Destination

A little bit about me

 

I created sannahvinding.com to inspire and help other business professionals to reflect and succeed with their innovation challenges. Innovation is not just about processes and products, it’s also about people.

I’m a creative business professional with about 20 years of experience in innovative product development, B2B marketing, and process excellence within the consumer electronics and the global human-machine interface industry.

I started my blog because I have a passion for innovative products that can improve people’s lives. I wanted to share my experience (personal and professional journey) through success and challenges. I hope you enjoy my articles about my experiences with innovation, design, technology, marketing, and corporate culture.
