Enabling Business Agility through Finance and HR with Bjarte Bogsnes and Pia-Maria Thoren

Overview

In this workshop, you will get unique insights into Business Agility in practice, both from a Financial, Management and Human perspective. You will benefit from Bjarte Bogsnes’s and Pia-Maria Thorén’s extensive experience from organizational structures and cultures that enable success in a complex world.

This workshop is part of the Öredev Conference

Companies all over the world who have embarked on this journey, including Equinor (formerly Statoil) – where the budget (and much more) was kicked out 2005.  

Attendees will understand how to trust and empower without losing control, and learn how to redefine performance – with dynamic and relative targets (or no targets at all) and a holistic performance evaluation. The workshop will also cover dynamic forecasting and resource allocation, as well as other examples of self-regulating management mechanisms, including transparency and peer pressure. Bjarte will also share insights into KPI pitfalls and the bonus problem and Pia-Maria will talk about the importance of psychological safety to release creativity, learning ability and performance.

Many practical examples will be shared and attendees will have the opportunity to try out different exercises in groups.

Why is this workshop important?

The level of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity in business environments is at a record high. Traditional management was invented for very different times and is today in serious trouble. Also, today, people expect more from work than just a paycheck.

How can we create an environment where people get the conditions to be happy and perform and at the same time contribute to strategic goals? In a world where the only competitive advantage that remains is to learn faster than everybody else and cause and effect no longer makes sense, we will show you new ways of working where people and interactions are more valued than processes and tools.
