"Small ideas are here to stay, and generally impact and mean so much more to Partners, than the next big strategic change. Therefore, using a system that allows any Partner, working anywhere in our business, whether driving a van, restocking shelves or managing the marketing POS, to submit an idea is very important. The Wazoku idea management platform gives exactly that."
Stuart Eames Retail Innovation Lead, Waitrose
