Doing opportunities

By  Gitte Larsen, FO/Futureorientation
Seeing an opportunity is a small part of making it happen. Businesses need to
think about opportunities most systematically as they become more successful.
Too many companies are so focused on the goal they have set for themselves
that they will miss many new business opportunities on their way.

To grow (Editorial in FO)

By  Gitte Larsen, FO/Futureorientation
Growth. We often think and speak of growth as a quantitative thing. In companies, we measure growth in money. In Denmark, fast growing companies – called gazelles – must have a growth rate of 20% a year for four years, or a doubling of turnover in the past four years.

She was headhunted from one management job to another in large international companies, until one day she stopped to think. What is a job in first class worth when one starts to doubt who one really is and starts asking question such as who manages the priorities, what is important right and meaningful for me, and am I really so sure I am living my life in the most satisfying way possible? These questions were Eileen’s starting point for making new choices in her professional life, and she was ready for the consequences, because, as she says, “if you do not dare test your dreams and try different things, you will never know what makes you happy.” Today, Eileen is many facets richer.
