Global Management Program
Successful Global Management - Leading a team in Norway is a must for people moving to Norway in a management capacity.

This course covers Norwegian workplace culture and management style in a Norwegian context. Although seemingly similar to other western work environments, managing Norwegians is altoghether different due to a set of unspoken rules and priorities. Being introduced to these differences early in the assignment is of great benefit to company, manager and employees. it minimizes the risk of frustrations and misunderstandings on all levels.
