“Taaleri made a big change in its strategy in spring 2021. The wealth management business has since then been sold and Taaleri now has a strong focus on sustainability and renewable energy”, says Robin Lindahl, CEO of Taaleri.
Taaleri has two business segments: Private AssetManagement and Strategic Investments. Private Asset Management consists of renewable energy, real estate, bioindustry and infrastructure businesses. The Strategic Investments segment includes Garantia Insurance Company Ltd. Taaleri has EUR 2.1. billion of assets under management. Taaleri Plc is listed on Nasdaq Helsinki.
Lindahl has seen many strategy processes during his career. He has noticed that too often good strategies are put in a drawer –strategy is not used to steer focus and action in the desired direction. Good strategy is of course important, but the most important thing is the execution.
“Execution requires systematic follow up. It also needs clear owners to all action points and that you follow them through on a systematic level, both in management team meetings and in board meetings. We need transparency and a holistic view of the agreed action. That’s how you can ensure that the strategy is moving in the right direction with the rights peed”, says Lindahl.
Trailmaker has been an important strategic partner for Taaleri through the whole strategic transformation. Trailmaker and Taaleri have worked together since the planning of the new strategy started.
After the strategy was finalized, Trailmaker process was taken into use on a corporate level and also in underlying businesses. Trailmaker is used to ensure that there are similar processes in each business and that the strategy is implemented in the same way throughout the whole company.
“It’s valuable to have a partner who is viewing us from outside. Trailmaker has helped us to define the strategic priorities and challenged us to find the right focus areas and prioritize things in the right way. The Trailmaker process has brought a lot of value to the whole transformation”, Lindahl says.
