The program consists of four interactive modules. Three modules, 2-3 days each, in Stockholm and a business trip to Northern Sweden to study the sustainable, innovative transformation that is taking place in the region. We mix workshops, experience-sharing, reflection and informal discussions within the group. To each module, we invite top executive leaders and other highly respected experts.
