How we think

Our world

We help our clients shift focus away from short-sighted quarterly capitalism to building long-term sustainable businesses. An important part of that is to navigate the far-reaching transformations of businesses that we see in the world today. Below, we describe four transformations we find are crucial for businesses and organizations to navigate today, and in the years to come.

To survive – and thrive – in this new world, we believe that the only viable response is to build a business geared to the challenge of political headwinds, sensitive to the global marketplace and true to one’s values. As advisers, our focus lies where global ambitions meet local conditions, and where the market meets the public and the political sphere.

THE POLITICIZED MARKET

There is an increasing overlap between business and politics. In the West this translates into new opportunities following deregulation as a result of political decisions, and threats in sectors previously untouched by politicians and changes in public opinion. In emerging economies, an understanding of and excellence in government affairs is essential, as well as a sensitivity to protectionist markets and patriotic consumers.

GLOBAL AMBITION, LOCAL UNDERSTANDING

The emerging markets are demanding more influence. International businesses face the challenge of having to operate in environments with a multitude of values, cultures, traditions and customs. Managers have to realize and accept that others might have different sets of values, competing or even colliding with theirs, and respect and handle them. Global ambitions need to be matched with a local understanding.

BUILDING TRUST

Growing consumer awareness increases public demand for just production conditions and fair commercial behavior. Fierce competition among companies from different parts of the world on emerging global markets, off-line and on-line, makes confidence a decisive purchasing factor. Building sustainable trust with all key stake holders is an important task for businesses and organizations alike.

SUSTAINABLE TRANSPARENCY

We are moving towards more transparency, driven both by the technology shift and changing expectations. For companies, the challenge will be to find a balance that satisfies a diverse set of stakeholders and safeguards business secrets and reputation. But in order to accomplish that, old assumptions about the merits of silence and fear of engaging with stakeholders need to be broken. In this world one can’t hide – even if one wanted to.

Cases

Confederation of Swedish Enterprise: Jobs for Asylum Seekers?

< >
case_ch

According to the policy of the Swedish immigration bureau, asylum seekers are expected to support their own living costs during the asylum application period by working in Sweden or by other means of their own. In reality, very few asylum seekers are able to support themselves but depend on government subsidies. Experience, culture and language may to some extent explain this. But what role does unclear rules and legislation play?

The Swedish Confederation of Enterprise (Svenskt Näringsliv) sought to investigate the actual possibilities of self-sufficiency for asylum seekers in Sweden during Europe’s migration crisis in 2015 (some 160,000 people applied for asylum in Sweden this year). The purpose was to identify concrete measures that could be taken to help more asylum seekers find ways to support themselves.

On behalf of The Swedish Confederation of Enterprise, Six Year Plan initiated a pilot project where we helped asylum seekers, via a digital matchmaking platform, to apply for short term jobs in exchange for payment. The jobs were defined and uploaded by small businesses and private individuals in two different environments – a small town as well as a suburb of Stockholm. The pilot project was executed in close cooperation with a company (Frilans Finans) that acted as formal employer by providing employment contracts, social fees, taxes and insurance.

By testing the regulatory framework and how it is applied in reality we were able to identify several bureaucratic obstacles for asylum seekers to support themselves through short-term jobs, while waiting for a decision on their application. These results were delivered by The Swedish Confederation of Enterprise to the Swedish government and to the opposition parties. The results were also featured in several national Swedish media outlets. The Swedish government promised immediate actions to combat at least some of these bureaucratic obstacles whilst the opposition included actions in their spring shadow budget.


Scania India: Aligning with Public Ambitions

< >
case_ch

Scania buses entered the promising but complex Indian market in 2007.
Six Year Plan support Scania since 2013 with adapting their business development, branding, communication and business plan to the new Indian government’s agenda. We help Scania demonstrate that they are the natural partner for India’s new ambitious political programs such as Smart Cities, Make in India and Clean India.

Our work include responsibility for Public Affairs and Communications and strategic advice to Scania’s management team in questions related to political contacts with office holders on both state and national level, branding and positioning, as well as business development.


Stora Enso: Board and Pulp Mill Investment in Guangxi

< >
case_ch

Pulp and paper manufacturer Stora Enso is investing in a new consumer board and pulp mill in Guangxi, China.

The project requires effective communications with stakeholders ranging from own employees and land owners to media and NGOs.

Six Year Plan has provided analysis of the communications and business issues relevant to the project, as well as advice on communications strategy, planning and messaging. This has given the local communications team a roadmap to start working from.

Gunnebo: Local Relevance Gives Peace of Mind

< >
case_india

Gunnebo has offices in more than 30 countries, and their safety products are sold in over 100 countries. From a communications perspective there is a challenge in being relevant and meeting the customers’ expectations because of the huge difference in maturity between emerging and mature markets. Gathering input from BA heads and local management on local business environments and connecting it to the overall business strategy, we created external communication platforms for the local markets. These give local markets a strong and relevant set of messages and means for activation, and market communications a strong tool in working with local PR agencies.
