We have defined four opportunities for development:

  • Linear – from employee to manager, to senior manager etc., with a strong interest for leadership and increased influence and responsibility ​
  • Specialist – to be an expert in the field; long-term specialization and quality-orientation​
  • Generalist – Development-oriented and unique with many competencies. Developing a career by broadening skills and knowledge within one specific or related areas
  • Matrix/project – change-oriented; a variety of different types of work and directions

  • Have the courage to make mistakes and learn from them
