This page describes the governance of our business units, which are listed below with the president for each unit.
The Business units and their governance
The Skanska Group has a clearly decentralized structure characterized by a large measure of delegation of authority and responsibility to the business units. Each business unit is headed by a president and has its own administrative departments and other resources in order to conduct its operations effectively.
Management of strategic items of business
Aside from day-to-day operations, the business units deal with matters such as their strategic development, and strategic investments and divestments. Proposals are prepared by the management team of each respective unit and then referred to the Senior Executive Team or to Skanska AB’s Board of Directors for a decision, depending on the magnitude of the matter.
Organization of Business Unit Boards of Directors
The boards of the business units consist of representatives from Skanska AB, individuals from other business units and the respective business unit’s own management team. The Chairman of each business unit is a member of Skanska’s Senior Executive Team. Where appropriate, employee representatives are included.
