At 3M, we strive to invent things that are not just new, but also useful. That's why working with customers to find out what’s important to them and what challenges they face, is vital. We call this activity “Customer-Inspired Innovation.” In my role at 3M Canada, I bring our scientists and engineers together with our local customers to solve unique challenges. Sometimes this means training customers to use 3M products, and sometimes this means creating a new product to meet their unique needs.
