Sportrelated background

During the year of 1998 to 2000 Goran Hartmann decided that he wanted to help out to display the business- or sport related potential in one of the sport clubs in his hometowns. So he developed a full covering visionary program for one of Swedens elite hockey clubs in the effort to try to establish the club on a elite league level. The visionary program was developed and managed as a portfolio, containing no less then 12 different projects. All projects was described in their own project directive, so each separate project could be managed by it´s own project group of volunteers.

The projects where covering  several different areas such as management, marketing & sales, infrastructure and also school education. Even the work structure for the board was redesigned in whole to secure and eliminate the risks for contra productive development. Several of the projects by themselves where highlighted on a national scale and two different projects where by themselves nominated for prestigious prizes as best practice.

All projects where co-ordinated and launched in a sequenced in a effort to lift the club to its full potential.

The implementation of the full program was outperformed between the year 2000 to 2010. And the last project are still waiting to be implemented. It was the 12th project in the visionary program, and its a venue project of the 5th generation and its still ongoing due to delays related to public appeals of the project.
