Anders Vognsen, Head of the Lean Agile Center of Excellence in Novo Nordisk, works together with his team and colleagues to focus on delivering value for the global healthcare company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Novo Nordisk’s purpose is to drive change to defeat diabetes, obesity and other rare blood and endocrine disorders. The company has more than 50,000 employees worldwide.

Our interview with Anders is part of our series: “Conversations with Leaders,” that we started in conjunction with the publishing of our book TOGETHER. You can read more about how leaders involve and engage people to get great things done.

Watch the video and hear Anders’ answers to these questions:

  • Why is it important that a company working in diabetes treatment and prevention be AGILE?
  • When building your teams, do you seek out only people who are focused on Novo Nordisk’s life-saving mission?
  • What does TOGETHER mean to you as a leader?
  • What was a time when you and your leadership team learned the importance of working TOGETHER as a company?
  • What has your experience of sailing taught you about working TOGETHER?
