I have just checked my email account. Ten years ago this week I was working in Lotus. I had been laid off and was working my notice period.
My job title:Training & Resource Engineer
I had a job offer from EDAG to join them as (the whole) Vehicle Integration Manager on a Chrysler program.
Overall, I did not enjoy working at Lotus. So why am I so keen to get them to implement my MUM proposal?
Many would say its because I'm stupid! They are entitled to their opinion.
I would say its because I believe that it will be a huge success. Huge success and (Group) Lotus are not terms oft used in a single sentence!
Training as a business is not a core part of Group Lotus. My ideas, were a little different from the mainstream.
Recently, Proton were bought by DRB-Hicom. DRB-Hicom therefore own Group Lotus.
I have written to them, asking to leverage their University know how with Proton and Group Lotus.
Together, they can set up institutions globally.
ICAM being the OEM and Proton and Lotus being tier one suppliers.
Perhaps DRB-Hicom are a little more education friendly than Group Lotus.
Lucky I'm patient!
