Fortive Awards Innovative Teams for a Job Well Done

At Fortive, innovation is cornerstone of our purpose: to create essential technology for the people who accelerate progress. Each year, we celebrate and cultivate our teams' dedication to advancing technology at the Fortive Conference on Innovation.

This fall, extraordinary teams of innovators from around Fortive met at our second annual Fortive Conference on Innovation atFluke's headquarters in Everett, WA. These teams joined together to network and share best practices, and learn about new ideas, technologies and tool applications. Afterward, theey returned to their home operating companies (OpCos) to implement their best ideas, drive new levels of innovation and, ultimately, deliver even more groundbreaking essential technology to our customers.

As part of the event, Barbara Hulit, presented three teams with 2017 Fortive Innovation Awards. Across Fortive, 19 nominations were submitted from eight OpCos. All submissions represent customer or market needs addressed through innovative solutions, and each product leveraged the Fortive Business System (FBS) and best practices. They were evaluated on Commercial Success (35%), Innovation Advantage (25%), Process Excellence (20%) and Strategic Assessment (20%).
