The HR Report 2011/2012.

8 “Customer, career, child – those are my three Cs.” Fee Steinhoff puts into practice a vision that she herself has devel- oped as head of the User Driven Innovation project field. Follow- ing her doctorate on “Customer orientation with high-grade inno- vations” she joined T-Labs as a Senior Researcher at TU Berlin in October 2006. Here Fee Steinhoff developed an innovative ap- proach for user driven innovation. She presented her concept at Deutsche Telekom – and found she was preaching to the convert- ed: from January 2008 she established the User Driven Innovation project field at Deutsche Telekom. Her daughter was born in Sep- tember 2008. Following maternity leave, she took over as head of the project field in March 2009. Fee Steinhoff, Head of User Driven Innovation, Deutsche Telekom. “T-Systems seemed to me to be the place where I could learn a great deal.” “I started at T-Systems South Africa as a student intern in Johannes- burg and then moved to a permanent position. I got the impression straightaway I could approach anyone here and discuss virtually anything. My main interest has always been on human resources, not on IT, even though I studied at the CIDA ICT Academy, which is sponsored by T-Systems. Their intern program really captivated me. Responsibility, atmosphere – the program is highly professio- nal. Interns can learn skills here such as time management, busi- ness language and self-assessment. My main task is to secure participants for the very same intern program I completed. I’ve learned a great deal I can use on a daily basis and traveled for the first time: As a student intern to Cape Town, and a while ago to Germany to the Next Generation Telekom 2011 event. Looks like I’m going to keep learning and develop further!” Siphiwe Mhlophe, T-Systems South Africa. Talent.
