SPX Business Leader Publishes Editorial on Innovation

SPX Hydraulic Technologies President John Swann

John Swann, president, SPX Hydraulic Technologies, recently published an editorial in Maintenance Technology magazine that presented his views on the need to look beyond best practices to capture, analyze and implement new ideas for generating customer and shareholder value.

The editorial provides guidance for operational leaders who are faced with rising customer expectations, relentless cost competition, capital constraints and rapid technological change. In Swann’s view, “following best practice processes or deploying the latest enabling technology alone rarely results in something truly unique.” He adds that “real innovation requires a clear understanding of how the future can unfold, as well as the organizational discipline and fortitude to act in ways that positively influence that future.”
