Recent activities

I recently finished an assignment at the pharmaceutical company Sobi in connection with a strategic change in their business model and research strategy.

Recently, I have done a comprehensive update of content and technology in my companies IDstories (stories) and IDme [ai-di-mi] (digital business cards).

I also run a start-up project BiBB, a Knowledge portal, and a new free encyclopedia that eventually will be owned by the universities in Sweden. BiBB can be seen as a social innovation.

Assignments

Each assignment has an educational part, and I try to be both clear and state the reasons for the views and analyses I present. A report can be written in several ways and with different intentions, and this is one of several issues that I always discuss at the beginning of an assignment.

Fee: The most common is a fixed fee for an agreed number of issues.

Education and research

I have an MBA from the University of Lund, Sweden, and I was recruited to SIAR svW, which at that time was the leading management consulting organisation in Sweden. There you should consult and also do research. For several years I was a supervisor at the leadership development institute MIL

The postgraduate studies in Business Administration were finished directly. The Government's Secretariat for Future Studies published a report - Understanding Coal - one of two parts of a planned dissertation. However, then my own consultancy business and entrepreneurship took the upper hand. As I am very interested in research as a way of increasing my - and hopefully som others - understand of management and societal problems, I started writing a new thesis in 2016. It is titled 'Encyclopedias in search of a new business model' and has the form of a web site. It is about the meaning of credible knowledge and digital transformation in an industry that became "digitally affected" when Google and Wikipedia became big.

I have also, beside my present companies, owned and run an architectural company (a non-profit foundation), a company in /digital/ image processing (about 30 employees) and a water purification (great environmental interest) company. I frequently write reports in English. I speak French, Danish and German. Great interest in IT, and have programmed large parts of my several sites.

My motto is
"You should start with yourself, but not stop there".
