This report is one of several reports within the GOLD research project at SNF. The research project aims to identify tools and techniques applied by Norwegian-based multinational companies that seek to develop a competitive advantage based on extensive knowledge sharing across multinational divisions in the company. The project explicitly focuses on how development of social capital enhances knowledge sharing. Four organizations participate in the project: Veidekke, Rieber and Søn, Yara and AFF. This report assesses the effects of Veidekke’s leadership program (SLU) with a particular focus on whether the program has generated social capital and enhanced knowledge sharing in the corporation. Several sources of information have been used including documentation of the SLU program, interviews with the CEO and corporate managers, progress reports and interviews with SLU participants, as well as responses to a survey that was administered to all previous SLU participants. We would like to thank our informants in Veidekke for their time, effort and willingness in providing valuable information.
