The World of Gripen

Like many other Saab products Gripen is a very impressive and complex product, which requires a lot of people with a wide variety of skills to work together.

Delivering a fighter capability involves a large amount of coordination, and the group that is responsible for winning new Gripen contracts and executing the existing ones is the Product Unit Gripen. Emelie and Johannes, two of Saabs new engineers in the Saab Graduate Leadership Programme work in this group. Here, close collaboration with the customers and other departments at Saab is a part of the everyday life!

In her future role, Emelie will work with Contract Management. This means that she will work with risk and schedule reporting, as well as negotiating new and existing Gripen contracts. Johannes will work within Business Management. This means that he will work with financial reporting for the contracts and producing strategic decision material, like the Gripen Business Plan. Both of them will also be involved in initiatives to continuously improve the results.

To learn and prepare as much as possible for these future roles, Emelie and Johannes will focus on understanding the business and matters around Gripen during the programme. Then again, they will also see many other Saab products and their organizations during these 14 months, in Sweden and other locations, which surely will be an exiting time!

Keep checking for new posts to see what’s going on!
