An introduction to Beyond Budgeting – an agile management model for new business and people realities.

Warm up to our great Beyond Budgeting workshop in September. Learn about Business Agility in practice from Bjarte Bogsnes’s extensive implementation experience, which started before Agile was born.

Get an overview of what Beyond Budgeting really is about (much more than no budgets!) and the close relationship between Beyond Budgeting and Agile. Hear about companies who have embarked on the journey, including the Statoil story – where the budget (and much more) was kicked out back in 2005.

Understand how to trust and empower without losing control, and how to redefine performance – with dynamic and relative targets (or no targets at all) and a holistic performance evaluation. Learn about dynamic forecasting and resource allocation, about KPI pitfalls and the bonus problem.

  • The problems with traditional management, including budgeting

  • The Beyond Budgeting principles and companies on the journey

  • Statoil's "Ambition to Action" model; 

  • Redefining performance - dynamic and relative with a holistic performance evaluation

  • Dynamic forecasting and resource allocation and no traditional budgets

  • From calendar-driven to event-driven; a more self-regulating management model

  • Implementation experiences and advice

And after the talk and discussion, join us for a nice apéro riche and good networking.
