Develop yourself to become an Innovation Manager together with ORMIT & DSM!

ORMIT & DSM Innovation Management Program

  • 3 challenging (international) projects at DSM.
  • An intensive two-year development program focused on personal leadership and innovation management.
  • Your own ORMIT coach and senior manager from DSM as a mentor.

Recognize yourself!
Are you enterprising and creative in adopting innovations and decisive in implementing them? Are you ready for the next step in your career? Then the ORMIT & DSM Innovation Management Program is for you!

For this ORMIT & DSM Program we are looking for talent that has already taken the first career steps and wants to develop more rapidly, possibly also internationally, at the interface of innovation and new business development. As a young professional, you will make the connection between the innovations that are developed at DSM, the various business groups of DSM and the continuously changing demands of our clients. Furthermore, you will go through an intensive development program with ORMIT which is aimed both at your professional and personal development.

Creating useful innovations
The client portfolio of DSM is diverse and the innovative solutions of DSM are often customized but have at the same time multiple applications. For example, within the business group ‘Materials Advance Solar’ the protective layer on the surface of screens has also been used to increase the efficiency of solar panels. And within another business group 'Dyneema' is developed by DSM. This super strong fiber (stronger than steel!) has a range of applications, such as in body armor, air cargo containers and stitches in hospitals. As a young professional at DSM you will easily move through the various parts of the business groups, which allows you to make a cross-sectional application of innovative solutions by DSM possible. You signal client needs and make a connection between the client’s needs and the innovation that takes place with DSM. And you will proactively search for applications on the market for the innovations developed by DSM. Creativity and the drive to innovate go hand in hand.

The majority of the projects that you will work on at DSM are aimed at the application of innovations in existing business groups, but you will also look out for business opportunities in the EBA’s (Emerging Business Areas) at DSM. On top of that you can use your knowledge and experience gained at different business groups to further implement best practices throughout these business groups. In short, you provide for successful development and implementation of innovations.
