Sari Torkkola


As a CIO of the Finnish defense and aerospace company Patria, Sari transformed her leadership style from traditional to LEAN. As a result, she reached radical improvements in personnel work well-being, service performance and cost reductions.

Exited about the results, she wrote a book about her experiences and learnings. In spring 2017, her story was awarded as the best business book of the year in Finland.

Currently Sari shares her insights in public and private seminars. She has been recognised as Top100 people in the Finnish ICT market in the business category (2015 and 2016).
