Taking reality seriously - towards a more self regulating management model at Statoil, Bjarte Bogsnes, Senior Advisor - Performance Framework at Statoil

'At Statoil, we try to take reality seriously, not just a dynamic and unpredictable business environment, but also all the competent and responsible people in the company. It sounds obvious, but requires fundamental changes in how we lead and manage. In 2005 we started on a journey of radically changing our management processes, which included abolishing traditional budgeting. In 2010 we also decided to “kick out the calendar”. These were both key steps towards a more dynamic, flexible and self-regulating management model.'

Bjarte will be presenting on 'Beyond Budgeting - An Agile Management Model for New Business and People Realities' at the Plant Management Forum, read his full blog here.
