Full house in Finn Øien with Øyvind Martinsen

28 March 2017

Since 2012, “Lederens verktøykasse” has given alumni and participants from the business community inspiration and insight into new research.

The seminar series challenges BI researchers to present new research and scientific insights that are relevant to managers in the workplace.

- "Lederens verktøykasse" creates meeting places for researchers and managers in business and public sectors. This is an important showcase for BI. It is brilliant that the concept has become so attractive that we must use our largest auditorium Finn Øien, says President Inge Jan Henjesand.

Mette Winger Eide from BIs Alumni Relations Department is excited about the development and looks forward to the lecture with Professor Øyvind Martinsen.

- The past year we have seen a growing interest in this seminar series "Lederens verktøykasse". Thanks to BI's excellent academics and dedicated professional staff we have now reached a milestone and can welcome our participants to Finn Øien auditorium, Winger Eide said.

Friday March 31st, Øyvind Martinsen presents key trends in management, and gives advice on what might work in practice. He places particular emphasis on how important it is that employees can decide how tasks are to be solved (autonomy) and the manager's ability to carry both responsibility and the necessary authority to his/her employees (empowering leadership).

"Lederens verktøykasse" is held every last Friday of the month. The next event in the seminar seires is Friday April 28th, with Professor Kim van Oorschot.
