Traditional management, including budgeting, is often too slow and bureaucratic in today’s volatile business environments. More agile and human ways of leading and managing are needed. Bjarte Bogsnes, Chairman of the Beyond Budgeting Round Table, spoke on how the management model Beyond Budgeting manages today’s business and employee realities at our CIMA & WHU Campus Talk on February 27.
He discussed with the audience how people can be released from the burdens of bureaucracy, entrusting them with information and giving them time to think, reflect, share, learn and improve. Bjarte Bogsnes has more than 20 years of hands-on experience leading the implementation of Beyond Budgeting. His inspiring speech was followed by a Q&A session and networking among controllers, managers and students who used the opportunity to share their experiences and further discuss the topic.
Our next CIMA & WHU Campus Talks on current issues in the finance function will take place on April 20 at WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, Campus Düsseldorf. To register or find out more, please contact evelyn.busch(at)whu.edu.
