Atlas Copco grows both organically and through acquisitions. To create alignment and keep us together we use the Atlas Copco Book, which describes our culture, strategy and leadership model.
New markets and companies bring new colleagues. No matter where we are or how long we have been working in the company, we all go through the Atlas Copco book, which keeps us up-to-date and explains our mission, vision, strategy and culture.
The book is rolled-out in in the organization in a circles format. The CEO of the company starts the process by discussing the content of the book together with his management team. Afterwards each member of the management team goes through the same process with his or her direct reports. The circles process continues until everyone in the organization has taken part in a circle session.
