Why we do what we do – OUR VALUES

In the ever-changing world in which we now live and work, the aim of Arkatay’s operations is to help our clients to maximise their business value through project success. We feel that the most important thing we can do is to increase our clients’ own project management ability based on each clients’ specific situations and challenges.

We endeavour to be the natural choice of partner for Swedish businesses that want to enhance their ability to succeed with their projects. We achieve this by being an attractive workplace for people who want to develop themselves as professionals, and who are also inspired by the idea of helping our clients to develop and of always working to exceed our clients’ expectations.

EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE

The quality of our work and the services we deliver shall always lead to our clients wanting to work with us, time and time again. This ambition steers the way we work, how we recruit new staff members and how we measure and follow up our work.

Insight

Self-awareness as an individual and as a company is the basis of all improvement. Both within our company and in the services we deliver, we have an express expectation that everyone will contribute, not only with positive feedback but also with constructive criticism, in relation to our colleagues, the company and the work we perform.

Wellbeing

We prioritise wellbeing, since we see it as a fundamental prerequisite for success and for being able to deliver exceptional performance. This applies not only to our staff members but also to our clients and suppliers.

Participation

When we deliver, we do so as a company, and we always make the extra effort necessary to ensure that our clients derive the greatest possible benefit from our collective competence and experience. Internally we work according to a principle of total transparency, and we encourage debate and the challenging of existing ideas and methods. It is in this way that we are best able to make the most of our differences.

WHAT MAKES US BETTER? THIS IS HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO!

 

EVERYTHING WE DO HAS TO DO WITH PROJECT SUCCESS

 

 

We gather together project managers and educators who love projects and who have both theoretical expertise within project management and long-standing practical experience behind their titles. People who strive to be the best at what they do but who are also humble enough to realise that this requires the continual development of themselves as people, of their skills and knowledge and of their work methods. Just like you, we also have the highest possible level of ambition, and we want to see you succeed with your projects – every time.
To help you in the best possible way, our activities span the purely operational to the strategic, from the individual to the organisation, and from project to programme and portfolio level. Our development occurs in collaboration with industry organisations and with our clients, and we are proud of the fact that we have succeeded through the years in building up a base of satisfied clients within a variety of industries such as telecoms, manufacturing industries, aviation, the pharmaceuticals industry, academia and the public sector.
We will always work to achieve and further develop project management as a unique and cross-industry area of skills and expertise, and to ensure that Sweden is a country in which the ability to work with and succeed in projects is continually improved. Project management is our core business. In fact, to be honest, it is all we do. We invest all our time into working with, thinking about, discussing, streamlining and improving how people work with projects. That is what we do best, and we do it in order to help our clients succeed with their projects – so that you can also be the best at what you do.
