For a change, I built my own house. Simply starting from a solid basis, exactly like I do in my work.
The head of a subdomain is responsible for a specific part of the IT landscape within the bank. In my case, that is Operational CRM. This includes systems, for example, that bank employees use to manage their relationships with our customers.
I made the move to ABN AMRO in 2007. As a Project Manager, I completed several major assignments. After some time, I decided that I preferred to work as a line manager, so I have became Solution Delivery Manager within IT.
Discovering new things! I always want to innovate and improve, both at work and in my personal life. First, I ensure a good balance, then I create space for myself to experiment. That is, for instance, how I built my own house, too.
Of course, I have fixed duties, such as my work for steering groups, customer contact and meetings with teams and Project Managers. But the emphasis is always different, and escalations mean that my day may suddenly look totally different. Never a dull moment!
