Sintef – Management workshop

Create interaction between the stage and the audience.


Increase the quality and interaction between organisers and participants for SINTEF’s annual management gatherings.

SINTEF is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia.

SINTEF arranges an annual 2-day gathering for their managers. They wanted to challenge the participants to take a greater responsibility for the outcome of the gathering, and take a more active role. To avoid the gathering becoming a one-way communication event, they engaged Kulturkompaniet as part of their ambition to have a good dialogue between the contributors on the stage and the audience.

Our goal was to accomplish the following activities:

  • “Dialogue theatre”: The participants took part and acted based on situations in their everyday working life – and had the opportunity to use their own experiences and competence.
  • Observation/talks: Kulturkompaniet were observers on Day 1, and summarised the various contributions before we “built a bridge” to the program and themes for Day 2 at the manager gathering.
  • Planning, theme suggestions and choice of training: How do you manage a leadership gathering in order to achieve more engagement and participation from the audience?
  • Workshop: We arranged a workshop for 120 managers, where the main focus was: ”reorganisation processes and good leadership to create permanent change”.
