– This would never have happened without me taking part in the Executive MBA programme, says Anna Bjelm. The Management Accounting module in particular, led by Ingemar Claesson, was truly inspiring, and encouraged me to start using concepts such as balanced scorecards and strategic maps. The Executive MBA programme as a whole has contributed to a substantial improvement of our daily operations at Saba Dole, says Anna Bjelm.

– I really think that the Lean philosophy is a fantastic way to successfully run a business. Now, having received this award, I want to inspire other Executive MBA participants and Executive MBA alumni to work actively with Lean, Anna Bjelm concludes.
