Beyond Budgeting - a management model for complex, dynamic and unpredictable business environments

More and more companies are realizing that traditional leadership and management practices no longer work. This is especially the case as business environments become increasingly complex, dynamic and unpredictable. Fortunately, innovative alternatives to traditional management exist; like abolishing traditional budgets and calendar-based management in favour of more decentralised, Agile and human processes.

Join Anders Olesen as he talks about:

  • The need for new leadership and management practices
  • Problems with traditional management, including budgeting
  • Solving the inherent conflicts in traditional budgeting
  • The Beyond Budgeting principles and companies on the journey
  • Implementation experiences and advice
