In the beginning of April, BBRT chairman Bjarte Bogsnes and director Anders Olesen attended a number of meetings and workshops in Paris. All these events were about introducing the Beyond Budgeting principles and management model to French companies.
In total, Anders and Bjarte met with some 250-300 people, most of who represented some of the largest industrial and financial companies in France.
One of the events was a joint session with Schneider Electric that successfully implemented Beyond Budgeting more than 10 years ago.
We are very excited about this interest. We will follow this closely and do our best to support the initiatives taken in France. Moreover, as mentioned at the latest BBRT Members’ meeting in London last month: it is very likely that the next European BBRT meeting is held in France.
