ICE day December 2019

On 12 December, another ICE day was organised by one of the self-organising teams. The theme of this day was the 2024 strategy.

Prior to this day, we were all tasked with thinking about developments within the energy market. Nice to be taken out of your regular work, do some research and read articles you wouldn't normally read! Everyone gained useful information for themselves that we could put to good use during the strategy session.

During this session, we were guided by an external party, Ascendors; an agency specialising in strategy formulation for medium-sized companies.

After lunch, the real work began. Working in groups, we had to think about the different themes, with each of us being able to give our input. Together, we were able to produce a very nice result. In the end, we arrived at eight themes that will help us determine a good direction. An internal project group has been set up within ICE which, in cooperation with Ascendors, will further fine-tune the 2024 strategy. The input from this day will be included in its drafting. In this way, everyone within ICE has provided input for the 2024 strategy.

After we had all achieved a very nice result, it was of course time to relax. The hard work was rewarded; we ended with a nice drink and a delicious Christmas dinner! On to 2020!

'Personally, by being included in the strategy formulation, I get the feeling that ICE is listening to the knowledge that is in the organisation and is trying to take professional advantage of this for the future and will set a course.' Derk Jan
