Said about MiL Walkabout
“There was an effect in our group of 80 people in a very short time. We created a common picture of where we are now, a pleasant, shared experience that also gave us a common view on how we can go on. We will continue to work with this plan of action.”
Business Area Manager
“While working in the production line at Klippan’s Cake Factory, I had an aha-reaction. Normally, I sit in the management group but here I was part of production. I had the chance to see the management, or rather, the lack of it. (The management were having a meeting, were off on a course, and so on). I understod the significance of a leadership that is near, how important it is to communicate goals, results, etc. Still, production worked well without leadership. This also gives you a lot to think about. Perhaps the management has the wrong overall perspective.”
“Perfect, fitted us to a T. We discovered things about ourselves, gained a better understanding of how we act. During the second day, we continued working on developing new plans of action. I have participated in many types of organization games, but this one was for real, with all the emotions that arise in an authentic situation of change.”
