Silver bullet: a simple and seemingly magical solution to a complicated problem.
Senior Executive at Environmental Services Sunita, believes in cutting through complexity and finding silver bullet solutions. Her target? Sludge. Her company spends millions on sludge disposal. Sunita’s ambitious project is to take a shot at minimizing this cost.
The aim of her project is to reduce the weight of the sludge by removing 25% of its water content. Hence making the disposal faster, easier and less costly. To dry out the sludge, a specialized dryer is required. Rather than purchasing a dryer like every other company, Sunita saw an opportunity to be a game-changer. She plans to build a sludge dryer from scratch based on her own design!
After much sketching and brainstorming, Sunita conceptualized a prototype design. It was brilliant enough to convince Management to get on board with the idea.
One of the major challenges she face is the slow and lengthy procurement process. It can take up to three months to obtain the materials required to build the dryer. Nevertheless, Sunita does not allow herself to be discouraged. She firmly believes that her project can not only generate massive savings for the company but also generate new business and profits.
Following her silver bullet philosophy, Sunita is working on revamping the procurement process by collaborating with the CFO of Alam Flora. This would speed up the materials delivery, thus fast tracking the project go-live.
Through DIA, Sunita has found the confidence and motivation to start executing her vision into reality. Her personal mission is to preserve the environment and improve people's quality of life. Her motto is: “Do what is right, not what is easy.”
Congratulations Sunita in becoming a Star of the Accelerator!
