Design and facilitation of strategy planning
The preparation of a strategy plan includes many decisions based on a mixture of facts and qualified
assumptions. Hence the experience of the management team, its style and intuition plays a
significant role in the decisions - making the plan relevant, consistent and operational. Because
of this it is clear, that the management should play the leading part in the preparation of the
strategy plan. It is seldom a good idea to ask consultants prepare a strategy plan. However an
experienced strategy consultant can make a world of a difference in assisting with the process.
I assist the management with the design and facilitation of the strategy process. Furhter
according to agreement I assist along the way with supervision, quality assurance, advice and
inspiration as well as chairing of meetings and seminars. I have been involved in the preparation
of more than 60 strategy plans for all sizes of companies and organisation - both private and
public/non-profit (and I become wiser every time).
Management Advising and Coaching
Strategy and Management are two sides of a coin. There must be a well oiled machine, that is
adjusted to focus on what creates value now, and that delivers the strategy for value creation
tomorrow. I go into projects that establishes the infrastructure and the systems, that is necessary.
Further I advice and coach managers and management teams on among others:
- Strategic Management
- Managing for Value Creation
- The management of consulting firms (also based on my time as operative director in a big consulting firm)
- Change Management & Turn Arounds
- Considerations regarding incentive programs (bonus systems)
- Corporate Governance and the practical function of the Board of Directors
Independent board member
The experience from my time as operative director and from many strategy and managemnet assignments
has proven valuable in a role as independent non-executive director.
Speeches, Lectures and Workshops
I give speeches, lectures and facilite workshops on the subjects stated above. I try to do it in a
way where the audience or participants are provided a frame of reference to be used for their own
further thinking and competence development.
