In order to be able to adapt to a rapidly changing world and be ready for the future, a growing number of organisations are embracing project-based work. Boer & Croon provides support at crucial times by supplying Young Executives, Young Managers and, depending on the situation, the right interim managers and executives with specific knowledge and experience.
Working within the client’s team and – if possible – supervised by the client’s management, they form effective teams who know how to achieve results. This approach ensures that the organisation remains the project owner and that team members get to share their knowledge and experience in a reciprocal process.
Examples of projects we have undertaken:
- Waste reduction in the supply chain
- PMO / Programme Management
- Implementation of strategy within the client’s existing corporate culture
- Development of business cases
- Project manager overseeing a hospital’s relocation
- Guideline for business integration
- HR coordination
Examples of positions we fill:
- Interim Manager
- Interim Global Supply Chain Manager
- Interim Talent Manager
- Interim Program Manager or Innovation Manager
If specific knowhow is required (for example, for Data & Analytics, Robotics, and Mergers & Acquisitions) for an engagement, B&C partners and their network of interim managers support the Young Executives in their role.
Jan Jongsma – CEO, Farm Frites
‘In their role as project managers, Jef and Coen wrote the business cases for two of the main investment projects in which Farm Frites International is involved. These business cases included determining market potential on both a top-down and bottom-down basis, developing various investment options and determining the net present value of various scenarios. They used a multidisciplinary approach in this process which focused on all relevant roles, including R&D, Sales, Marketing and Operations. Both these professionals took a leading role in creating and monitoring project schedules, collecting and assessing information supplied, and drafting the final recommendation. Jef and Coen’s recommendation to the Farm Frites International Board of Directors turned out to be clear with strong and well-presented arguments, and has been greatly valued and taken to heart within the company.’
Bert Kruisdijk – Program Manager, Isala Ziekenhuis (hospital)
‘By sharing their considerable energy, knowledge and enthusiasm, two of Boer & Croon’s Young Executives managed to improve teamwork within an existing team and brought the members closer together. They showed our team how to break away from entrenched behaviours and move from words to action.’ They helped us to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the procurement process in our hospital, which has allowed us to save millions of euros and add more value to the care we provide. Thank you, Boer & Croon, for your outstanding support!’
