General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that innovation must be the first driving force for development, with talent as the first resource to support development, innovation at the core of the country's overall development, and continuous advancement of theoretical innovation, institutional innovation, technological innovation, and cultural innovation. Innovative in all aspects, let innovation run through all the work of the party and the country, so that innovation can become a common practice in the whole society.
For private enterprises, how to lead development with innovation? Since its establishment 12 years ago, Hubei Changjiang Electric Co., Ltd. has won the title of “National High-tech Enterprise” and “Innovative Enterprise of Hubei Province”。 Wang Xincheng, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of the Company, believes that adhering to innovation drive has injected inexhaustible power for enterprise development.
Technological innovation, constantly moving towards the high end of the industry chain
A mature entrepreneur must not only pull the car but also look up the road. As a party secretary of a private enterprise, I have long formed a habit of reading party newspapers every morning, understanding the party's latest policies and domestic and international situations, and planning corporate development in the overall situation.
After the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, China's economy is in the stage of growth rate shift, structural adjustment pain period and the “three-phase superposition” of the digestive period of the previous stimulus policy, just as a person grows fierce between the ages of 10 and 18, and grows after 18 years old. The speed of the individual slows down.
I also feel that there is no such thing as making money in the past and making a lot of production. What is the basis for leading the company's next development? General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that by grasping innovation, it has seized the “bull nose” that affects economic and social development. For our company, innovation is the first driving force for enterprise growth.
Our company was founded in January 2006. It is a smart grid total solution service provider, including smart distribution system, transmission and distribution equipment, and power engineering general contracting. The production capacity is 10 billion. In 2012, when we planned to build a new industrial park in Guanggu, the company had different opinions. We thought that the mode of extensive growth at that time was quite comfortable, and we worried that the transformation and upgrading would not be successful.
After repeated argumentation, our company's board of directors has made a big effort to invest 650 million yuan to build the first smart grid industrial park in Central China, and to purchase an intelligent production and processing center with world-leading technology. The effect soon became apparent. When the company entered the industrial park, the company's order value increased by 40% compared with the same period of the previous year.

On this basis, we innovatively proposed to build Changjiang Electric into a “China Smart Grid Positive Energy Steward”, a self-developed smart substation that monitors important parameters such as voltage, current and load in real time to achieve unattended and early warning. Just like a 24-hour butler for the grid, ensure that the grid is safe, smart, efficient and environmentally friendly.

The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China made a major conclusion that “China's economy has shifted from a high-speed growth stage to a high-quality development stage.” The Central Economic Work Conference comprehensively discussed “high-quality development.” Generally speaking, the development of high quality means moving from “having no” to “good”. Our transformation to intelligent electrical is to actively adapt to this change.
We also deeply understand that innovation is the key to re-engineering the development momentum. We must unswervingly follow the path of innovation-driven development and build a benchmark for the innovation and development of the electrical industry in the central region.
Institutional innovation, rising group entrepreneurs
People are the most critical factor in innovation, and the cause of innovation calls for more talent. How to tap people's potential through institutional innovation, we have been exploring in practice.
For R&D personnel, we build a flexible lead-in mechanism. In recent years, the company has formed an innovative research team with a group of outstanding professors, doctors and masters, and has obtained a number of national patents and software copyrights in the field of smart grid. The company adheres to the integration of production, study and research, and has maintained close contact and cooperation with Tsinghua University, Wuhan University and China Electric Power Research Institute for a long time. On the basis of independent innovation and research and development, we have established good cooperative relations with world-renowned companies such as Siemens, ABB and Schneider in the technical field.
For marketers, we create a platform for creating a group of entrepreneurs. At the beginning of the company's establishment, we explored the model of group entrepreneurs, and borrowed the model of household contract responsibility system to encourage “self-management”。 A group of young people stood out from the basic posts and became entrepreneurs. The company used most of the order profits to reward entrepreneurs and let them grow into “entrepreneurs” with annual incomes of over one million yuan and ten million yuan. As far as I know, there are not many companies that adopt this income distribution model in private enterprises.

“Institutional Design”, “Institutional Construction”, “Institutional Arrangement”, “Institutional Improvement”, “Institutional Guarantee”, “Institutional Connection”… In the important speech of General Secretary Xi Jinping, the “institution” hand touched the governance of the country. Overall, institutional innovation has not only become a systems engineering, but also a basic project.
Under the guidance of Xi Jinping's new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics, we institutionalized and standardized the “group entrepreneurs” model. Clarify a concept: the enterprise takes the platform, the people do the business; the enterprise bears the risk, the individual gets rich first, the enterprise makes profits afterwards; and some system norms are formulated: to ensure that the enterprise provides human resources, material resources, financial resources and other resources for the entrepreneurs, and the entrepreneur needs to do The use of enterprise resources to start a business, open up the market and undertake more orders.
The enthusiasm of the people is fully mobilized. In the past three years, the company has emerged more than 600 new entrepreneurs with strong momentum in the 80s and 90s. Among them, 103 people have accumulated orders of over 10 million yuan. Qi Haimu, the president of the company, has entered the marketing industry from “outside the door”。 After several years of accumulation, the team that led the 50 people has created a performance of 150 million in 2017. The goal this year is to complete the order of 300 million yuan.
“If you get people, you will be safe, and if you lose, you will be in danger.” Only by getting innovative talents can we carry out innovative undertakings smoothly. Only by fully mobilizing the enthusiasm of all kinds of talents, the company's career can grow bigger and bigger.
Cultural innovation, the power of faith
The people have faith, the nation has hope, and the country has power.
General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that a country and a nation must advance together with one heart and one mind and must have common ideals and beliefs to support them.
The report of the 19th National Congress pointed out that cultural self-confidence is a more basic, deeper and more lasting force in the development of a country and a nation.
What is the most enduring and most inspiring culture for our company? Of course it is a red culture. I am an old party member with 29 years of party age. Listening to the party and following the party has always been my unchanging initial heart. In 2012, the company established a party branch. In 2016, the party branch was upgraded to a party committee.

“Three-stream enterprises make products, second-rate enterprises make brands, and first-class enterprises make cultures.” This is a saying circulated in the corporate world. Many companies have painstakingly designed the company's corporate culture. In my opinion, the best corporate culture is the red culture. It can effectively gather the greatest consensus and ensure that the company is leading the way in the right direction.
We adopt a “two-way entry, cross-employment” model to ensure that party organizations play a political core role. At present, the company's board of directors has a total of 48 members, including 26 party members, 2 development targets; 11 functional departments, including 9 party members and 1 development object.
The formation of culture needs to be nurtured. The company set up a party committee office, and arranged for the company's mobile party members and pocket party members to establish a perfect party member file. For the mobile party members in the branches and offices of the marketing system set up in the field, the company set up the online mobile party branch, and invited experts and scholars from the provincial party committee, the National Defense Science and Technology University and other units to go to the party class for more than 1,000 training personnel. People.

In the past few years, the company's party committee has carried out red-themed educational activities every year, including the Lushan trip, going to a conference site, going to Jiaxing South Lake, and going back to Changzheng Road. We learn party history, feel the party's grace, listen to the party's words, and follow the party. It is not a slogan and a flower shelf, but to learn from the successful historical experience and to find a way to develop from a scientific development path.
Put the party's fine traditions and style into the whole process of business management, cultural construction, and brand building, and ensure the political cohesion of the enterprise, the support of the organization, the appeal of education and the binding force of discipline. I think this It is our cultural innovation.
In the first half of this year, the company's sales revenue continued to maintain double-digit growth, and it succeeded in receiving orders for major projects such as Beijing New Airport, State Grid Corporation, and Wuhan Metro. This is our study and practice of Xi Jinping's new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The achievements of scientific and technological innovation, institutional innovation and cultural innovation will continue unswervingly along this path of innovation.
