Adevinta, listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange, pioneered PEAK®. How has the change worked out?

Gianpaolo Santorsola
Executive Vice President Adevinta
We are a 100% digital company. Agility was a must for us, a strategic business imperative to increase proximity to user and customer needs quickly.

In order to scale up quickly, we turned decision making upside down, it was not the “bosses” any longer who made the decisions but rather the people who are really at the front line of advocating for users’ and customers’ needs, i. e., the teams..

With PEAK®, we have been able to innovate. Innovate with speed, innovate with speed at scale.

PEAK® is an incredible model for motivating and empowering people, unleashing talent and el talento y getting the exceptional team you need.

“It was really worthwhile: I am very happy with the results we have achieved with PEAK® by ActioGlobal.”

Gianpaolo Santorsola
Executive Vice President Adevinta

“It is amazing to see how many different companies are joining PEAK® and how it impacts different industries and companies equally”

How have you managed to synchronize all the Adevinta teams with PEAK® in more than 20 countries?

Gianpaolo Santorsola
Executive Vice President Adevinta

PEAK® has made us confident in the people in our organization, opening up information to them so that they can synchronize more, so that they can communicate better, so that they understand what is going on within the organization and what is not moving at the appropriate rhythm.

When you have eighty teams in Spain alone, hundreds more in the rest of the world working in unison, remotely, in different time zones, with different cultures, different competitive positions… you need to provide transparency on where the organization is going.

When I consider what´s behind the empowerment by PEAK®, the answer is easy: there is synchronization and radical transparency. It’s a matter of Drumbeat®, of being all in sync, everyone at the same rhythm wherever they are in the world. Each team knows what the other teams are doing and can learn, see how they are progressing on their objectives and key results, OKR, and be inspired by the best practices of their peers.


The really nice thing about PEAK® is, it is not something driven top-down, but by the teams themselves, with their results and with the demand of more and more teams to join this way of working.

Adevinta Group companies around the world started to say: "we also need to work like this". Unintentionally, we have become a role-model with our PEAK® way of working and the transformation has taken place at the group level. It´s awesome.

THE TEAM'S OPINION FROM THEIR EXPERIENCE

Fausto Dassenno Chief Product Officer, Subito & infojobs Italy

"In a digital environment continuously changing and with a fierce competition, PEAK helped us not just keep the business in check but also evolving our way of working and our business by bringing continuous aligned among a multitude of teams and work streams. Everyone in our company has a weekly overview of the whole business, from the financials to the problems. Are we perfect? Far from it, but we strive for improvement and PEAK has given us an agile and nimble structure to achieve our ambitious goals."

Joao Eça
General Manager coches.net & motos.net, Adevinta

"One of the cornerstones of the change in the way we work is the evolution of the mindset. We have moved from thinking in terms of outputs to thinking in terms of outcomes. It may seem like a simple nuance, but the difference is fundamental and paradigmatic! With this shift in mindset, the focus is no longer on delivering ""something"" but on the value delivered by that ""something."" Instead of telling teams what to do on a daily basis, we were able to empower them to seek and find solutions to specific needs or obstacles in close user and customer proximity. The OKR methodology was an important step in shifting the mindset to outcomes! Together with ActioGlobal, we ensured that the objectives and KRs were aligned with the strategy and management priorities, transparent and visible to the entire organization on a daily basis. "

New business challenges, unprecedented business perspectives.
