‘One way or another, the job will get done'
Karin Waasdorp recently became part of the Interim CEO and COO community, made up of experienced directors and managers who have joined Boer & Croon. Haico Spijkerboer, partner at Boer & Croon: "The arrival of Karin confirms once again that we are an interesting organisation for experienced CEOs and COOs. We have the type of assignments in both the public and private sectors that ambitious interim staff love to sink their teeth into."
LESS TIME WASTED WAITING AROUND
"The goal is to operate service schedules with fewer people and less material, through better planning and the implementation of hubs. Drivers now work on set routes. She or he drives bus route 1 and will start, finish and take a break at a starting or end point. 'Air' is created in the shifts this way.
We are going to separate this. New locations around the Central Station are now being sought for this. Once these are found, drivers will get different daytime shifts with fewer hours spent waiting around." Karin is also working on setting up a fully automated depot management system.
Over the past decade, Karin has always worked on an interim basis. Now she has joined the Boer & Croon community. "I like the idea of being a part of something. It's also good to share knowledge with peers who are experiencing similar types of problems. That way, we get to share our experiences."
KEEP BELIEVING IN RESULTS
And that is why this new Associate Partner fits in well with the organisation. "I am result-oriented: one way or another, the job will get done."
