In a constant pursue to rethink outmoded business practices, Henrik has evolved the mainstream thinking and practices of today.

Henrik von Scheel is a thinker, researcher, teacher and author.
In his plea to rethink the fundamental assumptions of management disciplines and practices, he has throughout his career dedicated his research efforts to patternicity, the science of finding meaning in patterns. In collaboration with universities, he has identified repeatable patterns of the outperformers and underperformers over the past 30 years.

Research Focus Area
His research is rooted in ontology and semantics, which like an Enterprise periodic table has enabled him to structure repeatable practices into reusable and interconnected standards. The most recognizable are packaged as best practices (what works well), industry practices (performance patterns), leading practices (value patterns) and anti-patterns (what not to do).

His research focus on the following areas:

Advanced the Business Management Discipline

Pioneering in the field of patternicity, Henrik and Professor Mark von Rosing are the originator of Enterprise Standards and accredited to having advance management, operational, and organizational discipline.

The Enterprise Standard are a unique set of documented rules and instructions that describe sequence of repeatable procedures, practices (best practices, industry practices and Leading practices) across the business management, information technology, architecture, modeling, and engineering disciplines with step-by-step activities that are required to follow to achieve the desired result.

Each contains the required descriptions, categorization, classification, semantic relationships, ontology, meta objects, maps, matrixes and models to succeed and work across disciplines, projects and roles. All together describing the set of procedures an organization needs to follow in order to replicate the ability to identify, create and realize value in the specified area and subject.

Strategy & Competitiveness

Henrik explores to understand the pattern, lifecycle, semantic relationship and ontology of differentiating-, competitive, multiple- and defence strategy - what it is, why it’s important, and how to grow, where to innovative towards developing a successful strategy, one must begin with understanding competition.

Best know for his contribution as the originator of Business Model Notation and Operation Model Notation.

Competitiveness & Economic Growth

A leading authority on national and corporate competitiveness, Henrik researches the core differentiating and competitive advantage and comparative competitive patterns, -lifecycles, -forces and -ecosystems of nations, regions, and cities.

He probes the pattern of competition and its implications for national, regions, and cities and cooperate strategy. He studies the competitive advantage of nations relationship between society, environmental regulation, industry competition, and international competitiveness.

He explores the shifting role of various microeconomic influences and ecosystems as a nation's economy becomes more advanced, and the relationship between macroeconomic conditions and microeconomic conditions in competitive ecosystem of new and established economics, as well as the element in economic growth theory.

Innovation & Transformation

Innovation and transformation are still buzzwords for too many organizations, rather than the responsibility of every single individual. Innovation is the only defense against the profit margin crunching competition, and the only way to outgrow a dismal economy.

Henrik explores in his research the patterns and lifecycle of emerging & disruptive trends, early adopters, industry adopters, maturity and performance thereof and where to innovate and transform in sequence. The aim is to push innovation and growth research and practices in a new direction with executives that apply it in the real-world. The goal is to discover, develop, and disseminate robust, accessible practices and patterns of the outperformers in the areas of innovation and growth.

The Business of Government

His research work focus on the patterns of key economic, governmental, strategy, policy, regulation, security, trade, and societal issues; Examine best practices to solve problems and create strategies for the future. Improve and rethink department delivery model and performance. Explore new practices to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of government at the federal, state, local, and international levels.

His research focus on major management issues facing governments today, including the use of emerging trends and disruptive forces, digitalization, financial management, human capital, performance and results, risk management, innovation, collaboration, and transformation.

His aim is to spark creativity in addressing pressing public sector challenges – structuring new ways of thinking, working and implementation with proven practices and in public management design decisions making toolbox, that can help government leaders respond more effectively to their mission, management priorities and deliver on promise.
