Innovation creates success – we know from experience

Ekan Management is a management consulting firm with more than 30 years’ experience helping companies and organizations to achieve their ambitions.

The company has its origins in research conducted in Scandinavian management by a foundation at the School of Business, Economics and Law at Gothenburg University. Ekan Management developed from this knowledge and became a spin-off organization in 1985.

Today, Ekan Management consists of around 40 management consultants operating out of offices in Gothenburg and Stockholm. We take pride in our profession and in the confidence our clients invest in us. We are an active member of the Swedish Management Consultant Association (SAMC) and certify our management consultants in accordance with international standards, of which ethics and professionalism are the cornerstones.

The experience and knowledge that we have gained over the years has shaped our perspective on how we can best contribute to the success of our clients. We epitomize this idea in our key words Challenge, Involve and Realize. These words are our commitment to you as a client and we define them as our promises.

Challenge

Changing how we act starts and ends with how we think. Innovation takes place when we look at the world and our place in it from a new point of view. We help you and your organization to challenge established practices and open up to new perspectives and solutions. Only then can we use the created momentum to shape a new reality.

Involve

As our environment is continuously changing, understanding of where we are, where we need to be and why, is crucial. This is especially the case in large and complex organizations. We help you reap the benefits from your employees’ skills in your organization. In working as a team with a solid base in a shared understanding, the capability to meet both current and future challenges is created.

Realize

In order to shorten the gap between words and actions, goals and solutions need to be specifically designed to match your company’s reality.  Furthermore, a large dose of energy combined with the power to implement is necessary in order to evolve at the speed required by the situation. We help you and your organization to reach your potential by guiding you forward, reinforcing where needed and removing obstacles along the way.

We help our clients to create tomorrow’s reality. A unique reality that looks different depending on how your business and surrounding environment works and changes.

Sometimes the situation calls for a revolution – a total transformation of what one does, how one does it and why. More commonly change means evolution – to continuously challenge and improve business and how one manages it. Whatever the need, we help you and your organization to progress at the pace the situation requires.

Within these areas, our contribution is:
