Björn Sandberg

Team- Leadership- and Organizational Development, Agile HR, Coach, Trainer, Speaker

Björn is a very innovative and curious change leader with extended experience within Agile HR, leadership och Agile change management from both global companies as well as medium size organizations and the public sector.

To support the development of sustainable results and inspire a learning lifestyle, he has a development-oriented approach to learning. This is important both within organizations and teams, and of course to individuals.

Björn´s experience spans through the entire area of People, HR, Leadership and Transformation. Including business transformations, inspired by Lean & Agile and what really can be achieved with it, but also traditional process and improvements work. Used to maintain a holistic approach in a rapidly changing and complex business environment.

His experience has given him a deep knowledge of both large global multicultural organizations as well as government agencies, but also the challenges small medium-sized businesses encounter. His responsibilities have shifted from operational to strategic questions via tactical ones, both at the functional and general business level. He has held a wide number of different roles, both as a direct and indirect leader with and without direct reporting and as a consultant.

Specialties: Have a passion for making complex transformations user-friendly, by breaking down processes into pedagogical steps for all levels in the organization. I strongly believe that by developing people at all levels in the present, we build the foundations of the autonomy needed for the future.

Björn is running the Certified HR Agile Processional trainings at Dandy People together with Frida Mangen.
