Associated Partner, Strategy & Innovation
Buildup of a young partner-driven management consultancy within Strategy, Business transformation, and Innovation. Primary focus on the pharma, energy and extraction, and insurance industries. The firm experienced a growth from four to seven consultants within its first year, servicing clients like Novo Nordisk, AP Moller-Maersk, Maersk Oil & Gas, and Danish Railroad Transportation (DSB). The aggressive expansion could not be sustained during the present financial crisis, why the firm has decided to shift focus to projects at the operational level. I am not part of this decision.
My reference was the firm’s managing partner within a 3-level organizational structure, where my role was:
- To position the firm within Strategy and Innovation in the market place, where the key results were through my active participation in various networks and forums, the publication of several articles, and the use of social media to be invited to sit on two expert panels on open innovation. Furthermore, I was key driver in the development of a new firm strategy which resulted in a changed positioning and go-to-market model.
- To develop supporting knowledge and methodologies to be used on projects, where the key results were a formalization of a framework for assessing an innovation context and the development of concepts within innovation management, value innovation, and portfolio management.
- To participate in Sales and delivery of projects to selected larger clients, where the key results were the establishment of my own client portfolio of Maersk Oil & Gas, Novo Nordisk Device Research & Innovation, Nycomed Danmark, and Danish Railroad Transportation (DSB).
