About P&G SOLVE
INNOVATION has been the lifeblood of P&G’s growth for close to two centuries. From candles to soap, to the first soap opera, to Tide Pods... the list is endless. However, the common theme running across these innovations is “Bringing the Best of Outside-In and Inside-Out”.
P&G SOLVE is P&G Indonesia’s innovation program that aims at transforming P&G’s engagement with its External Business Partners to address the company’s needs, thereby creating a collaborative ecosystem with a mindset of “All in to WIN”. This program is supported by
