Objective

I strive to gain more understanding about sales and marketing so I can help my company to be more effective in developing, producing and selling services to clients. I try to be the bridge between sales and development. I want to be in control of the big picture: the whole productization from birth of service to the point of sales.

Summary

My objective is

  • to design new, interesting and useful services to b2b-customers
  • to be responsible for developing new services
  • to be responsible for the productization process of new services
  • to help in marketing for b2b customers
  • to take responsibility for the profitability of services I'm responsible for
  • to develop my own skills
  • to enlarge my network
  • to be usefull for clients
  • to find new interesting business ventures
  • to network with new and interesting people
  • to have time for kids and family
Other
  • I try to steer clear of organizations which just try to do things right (and not also the right things) and concentrate only on things which are fun (and not in things which are important). Of course these things don't rule out that it's possible to do fun things, which are important, are right and can be done right.
I want to develop my skills for the benefit of myself.  I also read a lot of books related to my career and then turn the knowledge into practice, as it's the fastest way to gain new information of which works and which doesn't. I'm also not afraid to try out different things, because as Mark Twain said: "Good decisions are based on experience. Experience is based on bad decisions". If something doesn't work I'll find a another way to make it work.

Interest

I'm interested in continually developing myself and to learn new and vital skill needed to further my career.

Currently I'm developing myself in the following areas:

- Agile Principles in project team environment ( Scrum, XP )

- Visual presentation

- Best software practices

- Leadership
