Bjarte Bogsnes has a long international career, both in Finance and HR. He is a pioneer in the Beyond Budgeting movement and has been heading up the implementation of Beyond Budgeting at Equinor (formerly Statoil), Scandinavia’s largest company. He led a similar initiative in Borealis in the mid-nineties, one of the companies that inspired the Beyond Budgeting model.
Equinor realised that traditional leadership and management practices no longer work in today’s competence organisation operating in business environment and more complex, dynamic and unpredictable than ever. The company implemented innovative alternatives to traditional management, like abolishing traditional budgets and calendar-based management in favour of more decentralised, agile and human processes.
Bjarte is the Chairman of Beyond Budgeting Roundtable (BBRT). He is a popular international business speaker and is the winner of a Harvard Business Review/McKinsey Management Innovation award. Bjarte is also author of “Implementing Beyond Budgeting – Unlocking the Performance Potential”, where he writes about his almost twenty-five years long Beyond Budgeting journey.
Equinor has opened up for Bjarte to undertake select external consulting work.
