Creating value with sustainable impact
2022 was a difficult year for Philips as its business and financial performance suffered due to challenges in execution, quality and supply, and a complex operating model. Going forward, Philips will address these operational challenges, improve performance, and drive progressive value creation through a strategy of a) focused organic growth, b) scalable patient- and people-centric innovation, and c) focus on reliable execution, prioritizing patient safety and quality, supply chain reliability, and a simplified operating model. All supported by a reinvigorated culture of accountability, empowerment and strengthened health technology talent and capabilities.
Focused organic growth
Having transformed to become a health technology company in recent years, we will now focus on extracting the full value of our strong portfolio with leading positions.
We will focus investments to accelerate growth and margin expansion in areas – Image Guided Therapy, Ultrasound, Monitoring, and Personal Health – where we have strong #1 or #2 positions. In 2022, approximately 70% of our sales were generated by businesses with such leadership positions in the hospital and the home. We will also scale our new Enterprise Informatics business, drive margin improvement in Diagnostic Imaging, and restore Sleep & Respiratory Care.
