Lars Häggström

Head of Global People and Organization Stora Enso

We first considered working with consultants and then looked at business schools. It became quickly very clear to us that IMD was the obvious choice as they had no pre-set formulas, but really took an explorative approach working with clients. Our CEO was deeply convinced that our success to transform depended on the ability of our top team to connect with the whole organization and explore what it would take for us to be successful in the future. IMD made this possible.
