Managing the global flow of goods and people - identifying tomorrow's leaders today.
Transport and logistics play an important role in today’s economy and have a large impact on Sweden’s growth and employment. It has become more evident than ever how valuable mobility and smooth flows of goods is for us. E-commerce is flourishing and consumers expect to get instant delivery to their homes, which requires a new form of logistics.
Decarbonizing and “greening” the transport system is an international trend and measurable emission reductions from the transport sector are a requirement for achieving climate goals at national and EU-level. This paradigm shift in the sector requires a new and long-term approach to traffic and infrastructure.
Amrop Sweden works with national and international organizations within the sector, having placed forward-thinking C-Suite leaders, Non-Executive Board Members and Senior Managers for more than three decades. We are dedicated to attracting innovate and competent leaders with strong strategic skills who can bring your organization through this huge sectoral transformation in a profitable and sustainable way that benefits society.
We want to hear about your context and specific needs. Reach out to our industry experts to set up a meeting.

So it should be paired with business strategy, rather than being subordinated to it. As the pilot of an organization’s digital strategy, a CIO should ensure that organization design, processes and capabilities, are supportive of it.
What Really Counts in Digital Leadership? - Culture
As Peter Drucker famously said: “culture eats strategy for breakfast.” The fast-moving and complex environment of digitization is no exception to the rule. For a digital strategy to grow and flourish, it must be rooted in a working culture that is developed and exemplified by a progressive CIO.
What Really Counts in Digital Leadership? - Skills
So far, we have unpacked three dimensions of our Digital Competency Model: Strategy, Organization and Culture. The race to digitize in all forms of organizations has confirmed the CIO’s role as a defining one in modern business. The bandwidth to ‘stop missing out on digital opportunities’ at minimum, and to ‘transform business models through digitization’ at best, distinguishes this from other corporate roles.
