Bjarte Bogsnes

Chairman Beyond Budgeting Roundtable

Bjarte Bogsnes has a long international career, with 20 years of leadership experience, both in Finance and HR. He is a pioneer in the Beyond Budgeting movement and has been heading up the implementation of Beyond Budgeting at Equinor (formerly Statoil), Scandinavia’s largest company.

Equinor realized that traditional leadership and management practices no longer work in today’s competence organization operating in a business environment more complex, dynamic, and unpredictable than ever. The company implemented innovative alternatives to traditional management, like abolishing traditional budgets and calendar-based management in favor of more decentralized, agile, and human processes.

Bjarte is also Chairman of the Beyond Budgeting Roundtable, and has helped numerous companies globally getting started on their own Beyond Budgeting journey.

“Implementing Beyond Budgeting – Unlocking the Performance Potential – 2nd edition” (Wiley US 2016) is the story of his almost twenty-five years long Beyond Budgeting journey.

Bjarte is a popular international business speaker and winner of a Harvard Business Review/McKinsey Management Innovation award.
