Strategisk management för privata skogsägare : En metod för proaktiv skogsförvaltning efter stormarna Gudrun och Per.

by Carlsson, Stefan

Abstract (Summary)
The family forest farms do seldom have any reason to worry about basic changes of the business plan.In an instant, that has been changed for the forest owners in the region that was hardest hit by the storm. The situation at hand calls for a lot of different decisions to be taken that will shape the forest estate for several decades. There is a need for controlling the forest farm business so that each individual decision is forming a uniform pattern against a defined objective. One way of doing just that is to use the theories of strategic management and apply those on the family forest farm business.This report is based on the generic methodology that is used for strategy definition and goal setting. Different methods and tools are described to content and purpose. After that, a couple of methods are used in a work flow that fit the needs when developing the strategies for the forest farm. As a last step, the methodology is tested on a special forest farm that is situated in the storm hit region.To achieve continuity in the change process, a reoccurring assessment of the strategy work has been proposed. It is only by dedicated and consistent work that old habits and working processes can be changed.
