Erik Korsvik Østergaard
Member Since: 31st Oct 2016
Erik Korsvik Østergaard (b. 1973) is partner in Bloch&Østergaard, which he founded in 2013. He holds a degree as Master of Science (M.Sc.) from the Technical University of Copenhagen with a thesis in chaos mathematics, and has an EBA in cross-cultural project management.
Erik has worked with leadership, digitization, strategy, change management, and organizational transformation in +15 years, as manager, project manager, and consultant – and has a burning passion for leadership and engagement.
Over the past years Erik has focused on codifying the mechanisms for the future of work, striving to establish a leadership framework that provides the modern organizations and leaders with a coupling between megatrends, theory, and real-life practice. This has led to a line of correlated models for strategy execution, innovation in daily-life, culture, and the networked organization, which has been justified in a long number of situations in both large, international organizations, and in scale-up companies. Combined, this has provided good, measurable results; especially on people analytics.
The four key findings in his work is gathered in his book “The Responsive Leader”, published February 2018 via LID Publishing, and includes three cases of modern organizations.
In addition, he acts as a mentor, speaker, inspirator, and motivator. He is a regular guest lecturer at Copenhagen Business School (CBS), and is also a keen jazz pianist, songwriter, and singer.
