Earlier this week, Samsung Electronics announced the creation of a new team that will work on hi-tech innovative business projects, according to an article from The Korea Times.
The product innovation team will focus on projects in a variety of areas, including unmanned vehicles, drones and robots, robotic telepresence, virtual reality and 3D printing, according to the article. The team, which will be led by Samsung mobile chief Shin Jong-kyun inside the mobile division, will operate independently. Technicians, strategists and product managers have been assigned to the team.
Samsung officials say selling products is insufficient for sustainable growth, according to the article, and “tech companies need to put more focus on how people can better use developments that are much more responsive to their daily life.” This is why Samsung developed the team and is shifting its focus to become a total solution provider, according to the article.
