About The Workshop

An agile business thrives from adaptive management methods and practices. During this workshop you will learn everything about the Beyond Budgeting approach for an agile organization.

Get the background, understand the 12 principles and the close relationship between Beyond Budgeting and Agile. Hear about companies from all over the world, which embarked on this journey, including the Statoil story – where the term “budget” (and much more) was dropped back in 2005.

Participants will understand, how to trust and empower without loosing control, how to redefine performance management and evaluation. They will learn about dynamic forecasting and capacity allocation, other examples of self-regulating management mechanisms, and they will draw from Bjarte’s deep insights on KPI pitfalls and bonus payment problems.
