Business development focusing on effective and correct implementation brings the corporate strategy into play. This means that all requirements for management, development, culture and behaviour are derived from the ambitions the company has for itself, its clients, employees and other major stakeholders.
We have three main priority areas:
Strategy is about taking control and making conscious decisions one way or the other. In a strategy process, we set our direction, define our ambitions and set goals. We describe the most appropriate way forward and define the actions we need to take.
Then there is no doubt about what has to happen for us to reach our goals.
The strategy process comprises three core elements:
In the analysis phase, we start from the company’s culture, the sector it operates in and the specific mechanisms that are in play. But we are also inspired by what has been successful in other industries.
In the development phase, the focus is on prioritising, then choosing and defining the strategy.
In the implementation phase, we work from the finished plan with regular follow-up and tighter focus.

We believe that strong management is one of the essential requirements for success and better results, so we believe in continuous development and training.
Most industries are exposed to constant pressure from outside. This naturally affects the management and the skills they need.
That’s why management development should be an ongoing process, which becomes especially relevant when the company’s future strategy is drawn up. New goals and ambitions call for new ways of doing things, and here the abilities of the managers play a crucial role.
Skills development among employees
The corporate strategy has to be implemented and executed by people. That is why we need to be aware that a new strategy can raise a need for skills development.
The problem is generally recognised, but still the need for training and building up employees’ skills is often overlooked.
This can result in poor results and dissatisfaction within the organisation.
“The managers of tomorrow have to be developed so managers at all levels are qualified to tackle tomorrow’s challenges.”
We create learning by the use of tried-and-tested and innovative methods and active involvement of the participants in organisational change. We adapt the management process to the situation and challenges facing the company, and we find the right learning style to produce motivation, development and buy-in from the participants.
The result is stronger teams, individual development and enhanced management skills in the organisation.

The elements of the development programme will be adapted and may be a combination of both strategic and fundamental skills.
It pays to invest in management development. This is documented in a Danish study which found, among other things, that:
