Organizational restructuring during a merger: How Nakisa helped Statoil place the right talent in the right positions


Customer Bio:

With over 30,000 employees and operations in 40 countries, Statoil is one of the world’s  leading oil and gas producers. To keep up with tough competition in the industry, Statoil needed to expand. The merger between Statoil and Hydro presented many new opportunities for their people, but reorganization couldn’t slow them down. Nakisa’s solutions provided a quick and  efficient way to visualize, design, model and communicate changes to the organizational  structure in order to place the right talent in the right positions as the company continued to grow.
