INTERVIEW

STEFAN STEGNER

Before com­ing to SCHERDEL, he had worked in the auto­mo­bile indus­try and med­ical tech­nol­o­gy for a fam­i­ly-run com­pa­ny in Upper Fran­co­nia for 30 years. As shop man­ag­er, he had been in charge of the com­plete pneu­mat­ics area. Anoth­er area of respon­si­bil­i­ty about which he has been very pas­sion­ate these past years and which has always accom­pa­nied him, was teach­ing young peo­ple in var­i­ous train­ing professions.

What do you do in your free time?

Fam­i­ly, youth work, sports (cross­ing the Alps by bike and run­ning, accord­ing to the mot­to “it clears your head”). 

What were the last books you read?

Shopfloor Man­age­ment: Lead­ing at the Point of Val­ue Cre­ation Val­ue Stream Design The Way to a Lean Factory

What do you like about SCHERDEL?

A super human beat! Peo­ple meet eye to eye! 

What were your initial thoughts?

How do I gain the trust of the man­age­ment -> plant man­age­ment -> train­ers -> trainees -> employ­ees? Find­ing access to employ­ees you don’t know and who have a great deal of knowl­edge / core com­pe­tences due to a very long peri­od of ser­vice. Is it pos­si­ble to find a com­mon denom­i­na­tor between the fac­to­ries, tak­ing into account cus­tomer require­ments? Hon­esty was the key to suc­cess here! Find­ing the com­mon denom­i­na­tor was not that difficult.

Can you tell us something about your targets?

To devel­op the chal­lenges we face into our strengths. To find a com­mon denom­i­na­tor for the appren­tice­ships at the dif­fer­ent loca­tions. The pre­req­ui­site is the inte­gra­tion of all train­ers, for a Scherdel basic train­ing that is suit­able for young peo­ple. Increas­ing the attrac­tive­ness of the dif­fer­ent pro­fes­sions and the cre­ation of a train­ing forge.

What prompted you to leave the company you were at for 30 years?

I always did what I could­n’t iden­ti­fy with.

What can make you resent something?

I am very direct and see things straightforwardly.

How do you make decisions?

I put myself in the oth­er person’s shoes and think about the con­se­quences, pri­vate­ly I involve my family.

What do you wish for in general?

To give back some­thing of what oth­er peo­ple have giv­en me! Peace and health for all peo­ple in this world.

And at work?

In the short term, as I am still new, to get to know SCHERDEL bet­ter. In the long term, I would like to give every new employ­ee the oppor­tu­ni­ty to find out about their apti­tudes and abil­i­ties through our train­ing project, in order to enable them to suc­cess­ful­ly enter the pro­fes­sion­al world.
