organizational structure. So our ability to
make decisions is streamlined. I think that
that agility needs to be leveraged to position
us, to claim that space."
Buckman's management strategy is one of
participative leadership, and the company
invests heavily in leadership training for
associates. This includes both leadership of
others, as well as "self-leadership" and confidential coaching.
"To my mind, culture is made up of three
things," says Maharaj. "First, what are your
values as an organization? We have the Seven
Principles of Highly Effective Teamwork-that

is very much ingrained in how we work. It
starts with 100 percent responsibility, through
the seventh value of 'focusing on results.'
"The second component of culture is
'norms.' What is acceptable in our day-today environment? We don't allow things to
go astray from our code of ethics-whether
it's something like respect for people around
the world, or something more complex like
regulatory compliance. And norms can vary
from country to country, which adds a layer
of complexity.
"Third is leadership. This starts with
me and cascades through the leadership

structure. Are we behaving the way we expect
our associates to behave? Our culture is much
more important than a strategy or a marketing plan. I like the saying 'culture eats strategy for breakfast.' If you honestly recognize
that, you'll always be able to find the right
thing to do."
DATA TECH BENEFITS BOTH SIDES
Maharaj recalls the headlines Buckman
was making in the 1990s for best practices
on knowledge sharing. Today, he's hoping
to expand Buckman's knowledge sharing
capacity to include data and smart technology as well.
Buckman's roots are in the pulp and paper
industry, and the company remains committed to the sector. Buckman provides onsite
associates for some industry customers; at
one site, they've dedicated 28. Pulp, paper,
and packaging customers all want deeper
insight into their processes-not only to
have stronger process control and greater
efficiency, but to make their mills safer
and more cost-effective, says Maharaj. A
number of Buckman technologies address
these concerns.
"We have a recovery boiler application,
RBA, that allows our customers to run those
boilers a lot more safely than typically would
be the case," he says. "It provides them with
a lot of data that are turned into insight that
can be then turned into meaningful actions."
Buckman OnSite is a data-monitoring platform developed in-house. Customers have
full access to the platform, which provides
them with a lot of data on key trends-"to
be able to highlight not only problems that
have happened, but to give strong indications of problems that are about to happen.
We can prevent problems, as opposed to just
solving problems," continues Maharaj. "Our
Vybrant technologies help reduce bleach in
pulping. We have other tools, like the Green
Toolbox, which allows customers to measure their Return on Environment-that's
our definition of ROE. Not your traditional
financial definition."
The right chemistry, and the right people,
used to be enough, he notes. Today, the data
component is essential. "Think about the
interrelationships on a board machine, or in
a pulp mill. If someone makes an adjustment
in one part of the process, it affects things
downstream and upstream. In the past, a
lot of that was handled by trial-and-error,
or hypothesis. With smart technology, you
