Head of Agile Coaching & Enablement
Thomas Øivind Andresen
Head of Culture & New Ways of Working
Thomas is an experienced leadership- and organisational developer and has been an enabler and promoter for new ways of working in Telenor for many years. Since 2020 he has been leading the adoption of tight-loose-tight leadership across all Telenor’s Business Units in Asia and the Nordics. He is driven to unleash the full capacity of the people and teams in Telenor and enjoys to sometime act as a corporate rebel.
Tarald is passionate about improving systems, teams and processes, and has been a proponent of agile ways of working since 2013. After many years as a project manager in IT, he grew to realise that business agility is about much more than creating software. Taking on the role of Agile Coach he challenges the status quo looking for better ways to collaborate, organise and lead work at all levels of the organisation.
A short story of the topic
Telenor has for many years been transforming it’s way of work to be more innovative, agile and customer focused. In 2019 the focus was on the leadership that was driving business agility, and this is when they discovered the tight-loose-tight leadership (TLT) approach. When the pandemic hit us all in 2020 and flex-work became the normal, TLT was adopted as the way to practice trust-based leadership for all leaders across Telenor. Tight-Loose-Tight is a lightweight systemic approach were leaders and managers trust and enable teams to autonomously find the best solutions that align with company outcomes.
