Managing Team Leadership Challenges in Integrated Operations
This chapter gives an empirically based account of leadership of teamwork in Integrated Operations settings, or “IO teamwork” as it is termed here. First, a brief presentation of the characteristics of IO teamwork and its leadership is provided. Then follows an overview of relevant theoretical...
Implementing iE: Learnings from a Drilling Contractor
On the Norwegian continental shelf, utilization of iE has been regarded as a vital measure for avoiding a rapid decline in production. Implementation has however proven to be challenging, and an unharvested potential still exist. Taking a capability approach to such implementation may help attain this...
Good IO-Design is More than IO-Rooms
‘Integrated Operations’ (IO) is about employing real time data and new technology to remove barriers between disciplines, expert groups, geography, and the company. IO has been associated with so called IO rooms. IO is technology driven, but is neither room nor technology deterministic. A network...
How to Implement Multidisciplinary Work Processes in the Oil Industry: A Statoil Case
Tom Rosendahl, Asbjørn Egir, Erik Rolland.

Implementing Integrated Planning: Organizational Enablers and Capabilities
Lone S. Ramstad, Kristen Halvorsen, Even A. Holte.
Transferring the IO principles to the planning domain has led to the development of the concept of Integrated Planning (IPL). The concept represents a holistic perspective on planning, emphasizing the interplay between planning horizons, between organizational units, and among cross-organizational...
Promoting Onshore Planners’ Ability to Address Offshore Safety Hazards
Ann Britt Skjerve, Grete Rindahl, Sizarta Sarshar, Alf Ove Braseth.
With new generations of Integrated Operation, the number of offshore staff may be reduced and more tasks allocated to onshore staff. As a consequence, onshore planners may increasingly be required to address safety hazards when planning for task performance offshore. The chapter addresses the question...
