Trainer Testimonial: Meet Stijn Janssens
What is your current role and what is it that you actually do? How did you arrive as a trainer and senior consultant at QRP?
I am a trainer and consultant in best practices on project, programme and portfolio management (PPM). This means that I train people in published best practice standards that could lead to recognised certification. But I do not stop there, I get out of the theory and get my boots in the mud: I also help organisations translate the theory into their context and “operationalise” it. This can take the form of one or a few sound boarding sessions, over providing regular assurance throughout the implementation, or even taking the lead in a customer’s transformation towards the next level of maturity in PPM.
What are the biggest issues/changes you see in the Project Management community right now?
Organisations often have a one-size-fits-all approach: they define a process and governance model that every project should implement. That might look easy, but in reality it leads to a lot of inefficiencies and frustrations for the PMs. Furthermore, projects are of such importance in organisations nowadays, but still there are few organisations that have the PM side of the organisation represented high enough in the org chart to give it the needed focus.
What is your experience in working for QRP?
I really like to work with QRP. As a trainer, they want you to do what you’re good at: sharing expertise. They always go out of their way to remove anything that hinders you in doing so. There is clear communication with the participants before and throughout the course, and any questions you might have are swiftly answered. QRP staff’s customer focused mindset certainly extends to trainers as well.
Also in terms of scheduling courses, working with QRP is great. There is always a dialogue on availability and opportunities. On this point as well, they always look for a flexible solution that suits both the trainer and the customer.”
QRP is continuously improving and adapting to changes in the market, but they will always involve the trainers and take their points of view into account. Working with QRP truly feels like a partnership.
