Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 17:00 to 19:00

Meet alumni from your university or business school

As a courtesy to our Nordic colleagues, the two Danish business schools Aarhus BSS and CBS co-hosts this alumni meet up where alumni professionals from more than 20 universities in the Nordic region are gathered for the CASE Nordic Summit. Each participating university has the opportunity to invite their alumni for the event.
We look forward to welcome a diverse group of alumni from universities in the Nordic region for an evening with academic input, discussion and the opportunity to reconnect with fellow alumni. 


17:00  Welcome
17:05  Found in translation: Five dimensions of strategy implementation by CBS lecturer Søren Obed Madsen

Søren will clarify the ambiguity of the implementation concept by presenting five dimensions of implementation; the instrumental, interpretive, legitimizing, political and translating. The five dimensions are described and discussed in relation to each other and the consequences for practice in order to answer three questions:
1. What is implementation?
2. How is something implemented
3. When is something implemented?

17:40    Strategy in the Organisation by Aarhus BSS alum (To be confirmed)
18:15    Networking and light refreshments

Søren holds a PhD from CBS within implementation of strategies, management and translation of strategies. His main research focus is in the interplay between actors, management tools and strategies. Søren focuses on how managers translate strategies when the strategy shifts from one part of the organisation to another.
