Acknowledgments

It has been said that if you want to travel fast, travel alone. If you want to travel far, travel together. I want to thank all my fellow travelers on this journey.

At Statoil, a special thank-you goes to:

  1. Eldar Sætre, for creating the foundation, securing the green light, and staying rock solid behind ever since
  2. Torgrim Reitan, for all the trust and support
  3. Arvid Hollevik, Stian Flørenæs, Jone Solberg, and Toralf Rugland, for all our great discussions and for backing it all with a wonderful system
  4. My other Finance colleagues and all of you out in the business, who have been taking this into your own units. I dare not list names, because there are so many of you. You know who you are!
  5. My Human Resources colleagues. We are so much stronger together! A special thank-you to the wise and wonderful Siri Bentsen
  6. My new friends in IT. Agile and Beyond Budgeting are a perfect fit.

I am deeply in debt to all my friends at the Beyond Budgeting Roundtable: Jeremy Hope (RIP), Peter Bunce (RIP), Robin Fraser, Steve Player, Steve Morlidge, Franz Röösli, Anders Olesen and Dag Larsson.

Thank you to Thomas Boesen in Borealis for a great job in Finance after I moved to Human Resources, and to everybody else on the Finance team, especially Gunnar Nielsen, Asbjørn Holte, and Anders Frøberg. I am also very grateful for all the support and patience from my HR colleagues.

A special thank-you to Bob Kaplan for the Foreword and for all the support since we first met almost 20 years ...
