Although Novo Nordisk has changed its practice for manning executive positions in recent years, its focus remains on cultivating internal candidates, according to the Novo Nordisk Chairman Helge Lund following recent developments within the pharmaceutical flagship, as it now has three company executives who have not been in the company for long.

We're not just looking to have a culture focusing on adaptability. We're also looking to have a performance culture, because the competition gets harder all the time
