About Focused Minds.

With the spirit of Småland.

We make things easy for our customers. We are business partners and work for the long-term with a focus on results. Innovative thinking, reliability and ambition are just some of the watchwords that form the backbone of our basic values. Our origins in Småland with its deep-rooted entrepreneurial spirit have taught us the importance of creating good relations with colleagues and customers alike. Our relationships are built on our values.

New angles create new opportunities.

Companies are influenced by the world at large, and globalisation, digitisation and new technology are typical factors that place high demands on a company’s ability to transform and change. Temporarily reinforcing the management team with a specific skill to gain an external perspective makes it easier for the team to stake out the strategic route ahead. We tailor our leadership and organisational consultancy services to suit the specific needs of your company.

Concrete and clear results are the goal.

Our consultants have extensive leadership experience at various levels in different industry segments. They all share a characteristic high level of motivation and commitment to change that brings with it improvements. We help our customers all the way from feasibility study and analysis right through to implementation. We regard challenges as opportunities and find satisfaction in clear-cut results. We’re convinced that anything good can always be better.

Well-documented experience.

How we work

Close collaboration, an attentive ear and a great mix of different experiences and skills create results. We help our customers all the way from feasibility study and analysis right through to implementation. There’s always a minimum of two consultants in each project who are well acquainted with it, even if only one consultant is actively engaged. We see a strength in assuring the quality of our work together and in always using a close colleague as a sounding board.
