Case Study
Stockholm management innovation

Why Sweden?
Sweden is the birthplace of many successful innovative companies, both large multinationals and smaller agile start-ups, specifically within new technology, social and digital innovation. The society is known for being open-minded, have low power structures, value gender equality, human rights and sustainability – qualities that has shaped the business culture.

Theme “Living Organisations”
On our LearnEx August 2018 we were visiting, what we call, “Living organisations” in Stockholm. What defines them is that they work towards self-management, purpose-centricity and wholeness.

The program
The program included visits to small, middle and large size organisations, consultancies with significant clients within the field and suppliers of “emotional wellbeing” supporting the companies’ transformations. Within the program we offered as well debriefing sessions, mindfulness sessions and social time with the speakers.
