Organizational model

Organizational model

In order to better face changes and to be closer to our clients, we have adopted Strategic Design (Design Thinking) as our operating model and we have created Strategic Business Units.

Since 2006, Planetek Hellas in the frame of Planetek Group is active on national and international markets through corporate Strategic Business Units: SpaceStream, Government & Security, Business to Business.

The organization of the company is structured into Corporate and Strategic Business Unit (SBU) functions, which constitute the Executive Committee.

Strategic Business Units are segmented by market, in order to better understand the needs of customers, while at the same time, ensuring continuity over time. The SBUs are structured to operate independently with planning, sales and production capacities. In our software development projects we use Agile and Dev-ops methodologies.
