仲玉凯博士在过去的25年的时间里,几乎把所有的时间都用在玩具及儿童类产品里面。他最近在沃尔玛全球采购做了十年的玩具及儿童类产品的首席技术专家,每年对近45亿美元的玩具及儿童类产品负有的技术方面的全面责任。2008年玩具行业的巨大危机事件中,仲博士是主要的解决者之一,这也为他提供了一个非常好的机会,充分的展示了他的玩具知识,他井井有条的处理转实验室、判断所有测试的结果、公众讲演去解释与协调供应商与他一起去面对问题,积极的去解决、工厂评估与改进、重制流程、带头写了沃尔玛最初的所有的测试标准及产品要求,等等。但对他个人来说,他认为最满足的是他给了很多的建议去帮助Hong Kong City Toys去做My Life As 的18”公仔,去年九月第300万个在美国市场被卖出。

仲博士的玩具生涯其实从大学就开始了,他的大学专业是玩具设计与制造,并在2006年由中国劳动部鉴定为高级玩具设计师。从大学毕业后,他做了近一年的毛绒玩具设计,后来做过玩具品质工程师,路轨车机械设计师,包绒玩具结构设计师,并在New Bright做过遥控玩具结构设计师,后来又在Hasbro做了五年的项目工程师,在进沃尔玛前,他自己开了一个玩具设计室。这是仲博士很神奇的地方,他几乎做过从玩具零配件,到工厂,到洋行,再到零售商的所有的各种类型的技术工作,同时有经历过项目管理与日常管理。他之所以可以这样,可能是与他总是不断的总结有关:

  • 《玩具品质与设计指引》,中国化学工业出版社出版
  • MBA 论文: 沃尔玛玩具品质流程改造
  • 管理哲学博士论文: 主动品质管理

仲博士访问过非常多的中国工厂,他非常的敬重这些企业家们,正是这些普通的加工厂的企业家们的努力,才能够有中国的如今,他们帮助这么多人,让这些普通群众可以过上好日子。为此,仲博士很喜欢下工厂,也很想去做点什么,他总是去利用他在玩具行业中的经验与知识,如供应链、OEM/ODM、产品设计等,去帮助这些企业家们一起去用正确的方式,保证一开始就做对了,从而可以提高利润,以至于这些企业家们可以更多的帮助普通群众可以活得更好点。
