RETEAM CITIES – CITY ACTION!
We will help you getting a truly operational strategy – all the way from survey to implementation:
Have you been wondering how to strengthen your city or city districts?
We have delivered operational strategies based on our surveys made in great cities around Scandinavia. The challenge cities are facing is that decision power is now spread out to a larger group of people including politicians, city officials, landlords and shop owners. Most can agree on a common goal where you have a city full of people, cultural activities, good stores, restaurant etc. The disagreement usually comes when deciding on how to get there. A municipality is thinking 20 years ahead, a landlord maybe five years in the future, while the retailer has tomorrow’s turnover in focus. To get this process started, you need a common plan that takes the different planning periods and financial framework into consideration. This is what reteam group does. Our strategies embrace both the need for immediate change, as well as a long-term plan. It is not only what we do, but also how we do it. While developing our strategy, we arrange for three workshops where all parties are invited. We make sure that the possibilities and challenges for each party is understood. At the end of the process, everybody knows the strengths and weaknesses and how to support each other.
The strategy itself is very operational. There are clear recommendations for each area in the city/city districts; what kind of events are suitable for this area, how can the public area be improved, or what type of tenants are missing, etc. After the final workshop, we establish small groups each consisting of representation from the municipality, landlords and tenants. This is when the implementation begins.In the initial phase you want to show the inhabitants that things are happening right away.
Thanks to reteam groups unique understanding of the city landscape and how to improve it, the Association of Swedish City Districts appointed reteam group as preferred partner already in 2013.

We have also been working with lots of projects in Copenhagen, Vaerlöse, KAB (Sydhavnen), Amagerbrogade, Blokhus, Glostrup and many more in Denmark as well as Den Haag in the Netherlands.
“It’s now bubbling and buzzing among the municipality and the landlords, which you have probably noticed – very cool!” Jenny Rungegård, Head of Växjö Citysamverkan, Sweden.
“Reteam’s work is so great and different and you can take their proposals and immediately start working to implement them.” Mats André, Business Developer, Municipality of Lund, Sweden.
“Reteam did the strategy and presented it for all of us – the municipality, the property owners and the retailers. Next meeting I had with one of the major property owners in our city (an international bank) went extremely well! All of a sudden they listened to what I had to say – for the first time! We spoke the same language, pretty amazing, the development of the city is finally going in the right direction… ” Mayor of a city just outside Copenhagen, Denmark.
(Who and where this was will be relieved when the mayor says go….)
