Today companies are investing in leadership development without knowing what value the efforts create. Take A Change receives funding from Sweden’s Innovation Agency Vinnova to develop a digital SaaS service with global potential that solves the problem.
Vinnova provides funding for innovation projects that contribute to sustainable growth and have commercial potential. Take A Change will, with Vinnova’s financial support, develop a service to facilitate and measure managers’ development through stakeholder involvement.
“Globally, companies are investing billions on leadership development without knowing what results the efforts give. We think that customers should demand measurable results from their investments”, says Agneta Åkerhielm, Partner and co-founder of Take A Change.
The digital service will, in addition to creating clear measurability, also create individualized development and change for the managers who use the tool for their development. The service will also contribute to the digitization of HR work and make HR even more business-oriented and sustainable.
“Vinnova’s support means a lot to us. We are convinced that our service will contribute to more sustainable leaders, who through the service can better understand what to do to create more value for themselves and their teams. Our success can also contribute to putting Sweden on the map within leadership development”, says Frank Ekelund, Partner and co-founder of Take A Change, who will also project lead the development of the service.
