Hi Titti, how nice to have you here! Tell us a little about your background.
– I have studied systems science in Lund, a little unpredictable if you ask me. Because I was not a typical computer person in high school. But so it was, and luckily it is. I like logic and math – so systems science fits really well. It opened my eyes to the possibilities of IT. To use IT to develop people and their way of working. It felt like a step in the right direction, says Titti.
– Otherwise, my life has been many projects. Like moving. My family and I have moved a lot. Different countries and organizations. I usually see it as a fun project – Well, now we’re moving here. Let that project start.
Titti, I want to ask you what you call your industry?
– Even though I have been in the automotive industry, in county councils and regions and in the life science industry, I usually say that I am not in a typical industry. More in the area where I help companies to move from position to another with the help of structure, method and IT.
Method and process, ok. Say something more about it.
– As I said, I have worked a lot in health care and county councils. By setting an overall structure that is – or eventually becomes, I can add – common to then develop processes and methods, we create efficiency and success. It is at least as important as working with the organization’s employees to understand why you should work with these tools, I mean.
Mention an example that comes to mind?
– Yes, for example, I have worked for ten years at Fujitsu and many of them as a consultant at Region Skåne. It’s insanely fun! Very fun to work with dietitians for example. Significant and easy to relate to it yourself. Easy to understand that in a very large organization you have to have one or two experts in several different areas. If it is to be effective, good methods and good processes are again needed, supported by IT.
– It is the same in the Life Science industry, says Titti. The difference in my assignments is relatively small when you think about it. But running a business is, of course, a completely different matter. Here, the pursuit of market share is truly striking. And then you have to have clear goals. Of course there is a difference. But it’s just as fun when there’s a “flow”, when the organization goes in the same direction.
Now you are a consultant at Anchor Management Consulting – Why are you a good consultant?
– I have always been driven by preserving people’s interest and being able to steer it to development and really education, if it is now possible to understand my idea. Probably because I think development is fun. In short, I think it’s genuinely fun to notice that organization goes in the same direction and exchanges efficiency. Energy comes from others being with me on the train.
– Then I find it easy to jump in, straight in and understand here and now. Dig and chop on the sturgeon. I think it’s the most fun when it happens and should be implemented, says Titti.
Titti, finally tell us something to do in your spare time.
– Then I want to recommend mountain biking. It’s not just for young wild brains, it’s for people like me too. You will be twelve years old again! Last year we drove the section Halmstad-Karlshamn. Rain, rain, rain every day, the swimming caps on top of the bicycle helmets. Then you live well with and generally have fun. You see new sides of yourself. It’s a memory I will not forget, Titti concludes.
