Company Relocation as Demo-Case

  • Steen LeleurEmail author
Part of the Decision Engineering book series (DECENGIN)


This chapter serves to exemplify systemic planning in the form of a description of a complex planning task concerning the relocation of TRANS-IT Consult. The case concerns the application of SP for selecting a new company headquarters location in the Øresund region with many different factors influencing the final choice among a set of eight pre-screened possibilities. The case description includes the various SP steps and considerations leading towards a final strategic decision about the most attractive new location. As emphasised in the chapter findings the case is but one example of applying the systemic planning (SP) principles and methodology as it should basically be considered as an open-ended approach.
