Bjørn Magnus Kopperud, Telenor

Understanding the value of communities and digital ways of work.

Telenors Way of Work program was initi­ated 2006 and concluded in 2010. It was based on the doctorate work from Jan Taug: “Intan­gi­bles and capital conver­sion in complex orga­ni­za­tions”. Telenor was the main case in the disser­ta­tion. EVP Bjørn Magnus Kopperud was the exec­u­tive sponsor for the program. Jan Taug, founder of JOIN21 was the program owner and lead the program as an employee of Telenor.Key ques­tion: How to better connect and put knowl­edge in motion across borders and measure devel­op­ments and impact?

VALUE CREATION ANALYSIS

The network based value creation analysis from Taug’s work showed the organ­i­sa­tion as a network. Telenor was imple­men­tuing a new vision and new values, and 200 managers were invited to a Telenor Manage­ment Meeting in Norway. Before the meeting they were asked who they go to: — before making a deci­sion, — for infor­ma­tion, — for expert advice. They were presented a networkmap of their rela­tions, and the find­ings showed that very few was reaching outside their local orga­ni­za­tion. In the meeting they saw the global Telenor orga­ni­za­tion as a network for the first time. These insight was used to create a collab­o­ra­tion base­line. Central people and projects was iden­ti­fied and used to launch smart. Managers and workers was helped to use the new virtual work­place and to reach out across bound­aries. Cross country and cross func­tional commu­ni­ties, projects, and inno­va­tors connected and started to drive new insights. Smart adop­tion saves money, boost inter­ac­tions and drive value.
