Pathbuilder program – Stora Enso rethinks their business

We first considered working with consultants before looking at business schools. It quickly became clear to us that IMD was the obvious choice; they had no pre-set formulas and took an explorative approach to working with clients. Our CEO was deeply convinced that our transformational success depended on the ability of our top team to connect with the whole organization and explore what it would take for us to be successful in the future. IMD made this possible.
