CASE: As a newly formed unit, the department wanted to create a distinct department identity and be able to communicate this identity more clearly. The process included workshops, stakeholder interviews and formulation of new identity.
Through his workshops and interviews of our internal and external suppliers and partners, Roar helped us to an understanding of, how the department is perceived by others and how we perceive ourselves. We now use this understanding in our communication project.

CASE: The Section for Sensory and Consumer Science needed guidance in developing a research group identity as a basis for creating a coherent research strategy for the future. Particularly, the section needed to identify core research themes, scientific competences, needs for infrastructure and internal organization.
Roar facilitated the process in an effective and pleasant way addressing our needs and showing us how to think differently addressing both the internal connections to the Department and outreach to stakeholders.
With a PhD in identity creation in businesses, Roar was well suited to lead the process gaining respect for his high level of knowledge and understanding of the academic world. The few meetings with Roar ended in a concrete and final form for our group identity with many leads on how to connect and consolidate the research strategy to this identity. It was certainly worth the investment for our group. Thanks for a high level of professionalism.

CASE: As a newly formed administration unit, the members needed consulting in the process of forming, establishing and developing a well-functioning team. We helped the client in facilitating and leading the teambuilding for the core administration team.
Vi i EY Nordics har god erfarenhet av att använda oss av Roar Bovims tjänster som föredragshållare och facilitator för nordiska teambuildingaktiviteter. Hans insikt i teamdynamik och de faser ett nytt team går igenom tills medlemmarna fungerar som en väl integrerad grupp har varit mycket värdefulla för mina medarbetare. Roar är en underhållande och kunskapsrik föredragshållare som lyssnar in och sträcker sig långt för att ge kunden en positiv upplevelse.
