Eager to learn
Especially when a new project starts, getting to grips with the customer’s business reality demands an “eager to learn” attitude. Piet explains: “On-the-job training has been crucial to my career at delaware. We like to hit the ground running.”
Over the years, Piet has completed several training courses. In his first year, for instance, he took an Advanced Warehousing course in Copenhagen, “because we were looking to implement AX’s new module at our customer,” he says. This year, Piet completed the Discrete and Process Manufacturing training, also in Copenhagen. “Given my interest in production and planning, my team lead was more than right to send me there!”
After taking part in various training sessions, including on Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN), Sensitive Consulting Skills and Presentation Skills, Piet also went to the Senior Consultant Bootcamp last year. The bootcamp is a 4-day program for newly promoted senior consultants, organized by the delaware academy. Piet then took the Priority Management course and signed up for the pre-sales training, both of which proved useful to his current activities. “During the bootcamp I’ve learned a great deal about giving feedback and being an inspiring leader. The Coach the Coach training really stood out to me, mainly because of the experienced course leader.” Piet can now apply this knowledge into his daily practice, which to him is a sign of quality training.
