A Victory for Solution-Oriented Students

The winners of the Case 13 Competition are chosen.

The Case Competition is an annual collaborative effort between Study Bergen, the Career Centre Springbrettet and a variety of players in business and industry. This year it was Aibel that presented a case for students to solve.  

The problem for the students to grapple with was a very relevant one these days. It was all about Aibel’s plans to move from their present offices at Sandsli in Bergen to a new building at Kokstad. How would the students suggest addressing the challenges of change management and logistics?

The winning group, consisting of Ayenew Melak Mesfin (System Dynamics, University of Bergen), Akliliu Tilahun Tadesse (System Dynamics, University of Bergen), Hasan Muhammad Baniamin (Administration and Organisation Theory, University of Bergen) and Mizanur Rahman (Administration and Organisation Theory, University of Bergen), produced a focused and solution-oriented response to the problem. One aspect which the jury emphasised was their use of long-term systematic models, which helped to give the solution a sound academic basis.

Geir Ivar Vinsjevik, Øyvind Kyvik and Jørgen Titlestad, all working in engineering in Bergen, were the Aibel representatives on the jury. They were impressed by the standard of the competition entries.

"We received many ideas and suggestions for concrete measures in the students' reports that we want to continue working on," said Øyvind Kyvik.
