VISION. VENTURE. VALUE. Daimler Supplier Award 2018


VISION. VENTURE. VALUE. These three words represent the blueprint for entrepreneurial success – and they are the theme of the eleventh Daimler Supplier Award. In the run-up to the event, the three leaders of Daimler Procurement explain what this means in more detail.


A VISION sets a clear path and forms the basis for strategic objectives and measures. A vision has the strength to get everyone to join in. Employees, business partners and customers. And it helps to differentiate what is important from what is unimportant and to reach the goals that have been set.

Wilko Stark, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Procurement & Supplier Quality, Daimler AG.


VENTURE describes how we approach our vision together with our partners. Change will not succeed without some disruptive elements, which is true today and will be even more so in the future. That's why we have to rediscover our entrepreneurship, take on risks responsibly and seize opportunities.

Andreas Burkhart, Vice President International Procurement Services, Daimler AG.


VALUE means that those who dare win. Putting in effort, accepting responsibility and taking risks will be rewarded. The synergistic effects that come from a visionary, progressive partnership also appear in this value growth.

Dr. Marcus Schoenenberg, Vice President Global Procurement Daimler Trucks & Buses, Daimler AG.
