I have been in the IT industry for almost 20 years (since 1998), and as a result of my project manager experience, and background as a technical consultant, I am well at home in IT projects, IT operations and activities where there is business , technologies and processes involved, for example, where the purpose is system development & testing, implementation of IT solution or IT infrastructure, IT operations, DevOps or processes.

 

What I find interesting in project management is to direct projects and project participants through the unknown challenges that projects often encounter. At the same time, I am also interested in clarifying thoughts, wishes and ideas, from stakeholders, in order to better match expectations, because two / need to / nice two, relative to deliveries.

From (spring) 2016 (spring) 2017 (COOP) I have worked as a technical project manager / application manager where I conducted business analysis, development and operation of approx. 130 logistics systems.
