Advisory & Mentoring
The words “trusted advisor” mean that you have business acumen. It means that you have the experience, the training, the knowledge, and the subject matter expertise to be trusted to advise your clients well. It also indicates a certain set of behaviors.
Today’s workingplace is more complex and tougher to navigate then ever before. In addition, over the last few years two notable trends have emerged among job seekers: they are favoring meaning in their work, even more than money; and, they are eager for growth. Mentoring plays an essential role in filling these needs and can be powerful and life changing for the indivduals receiving it. Yet, that’s just the beginning of the story. Mentoring can be positioned in organisation to increase performance, engagement and retention … and at little cost.
Project & Program Management
My experience lies mainly in the program and project management and the tools that are available to make the transformation run in a structured and effective way. Aligning different stakeholders and creation of common goals are certainly ‘Key Success Factors’, but not the only ones.
Having a good idea can lead to a change and is undoubtedly the starting point. However, this is not enough to make it a successful product or service.
Transforming an idea into a viable product or service also requires structure and a particular approach. Sometimes you even have to think outside the box to find a certain creative solution and still achieve your predetermined goal or value proposition.
There are several methods available to structure and guide this process:
- Agile methodology
- Human / User Centered Design or Design thinking process
- Waterfall methodology (Prince2 related)
Which method is most effective will be determined by several factors:
- Value proposition
- Type of transformation
- Organizational context
- Available resources
It is important to discuss these elements transparently during the intake, so the most suitable method can be selected.
