Pieter in het kort

Project and program manager with proven experience in leading teams and coaching individuals

Leading, mentoring and coaching a team that is managing programs and projects is what gives me that fire inside. I enjoy the most to create an environment where we offer opportunities to grow, deliver value, go the extra mile, do the right things and do things right

In my view there is no "right" project management methodology. The best methodology is what makes sense and is most suitable for the project, team and client. Often that means applying a hybrid approach combining traditional and Agile practices to best accommodate numerous project requirements with a focus on increasing agility in the way of working

Following types of projects have my highest interest
- process improvement (administrative process or production process) or improving management information
- product- or service development
- research and development
- software development, selection and implementation
- reorganization

The past years I led a team of project managers in charge of a broad range of mapping projects. Building maps has been one of the most thrilling challenges in my career - very cross-functional problem solving across engineering and operations, lots of uniqueness in the world to geek out about, lots of different cultures to work with and always pushing the bar on new features and internal automation.

Many the projects were focused on delivering significant map quality improvements with highest focusing on improved end-user experience regarding destination selection and error free routing from point A to point B. A few examples:
(1) The Apple Saudi Arabia turn by turn navigation and addressing project: Apple opened an Apple Store in Saudi Arabia early 2019 and wanted to launch a navigation app. Since TomTom’s map quality was lagging behind competition a project was initiated to boost the map quality.
(2) The Renault-Nissan Russia addressing project: In 2018 TomTom committed to Renault-Nissan to create a premium map for Russia and to accelerate the investments based on the feedback received on quality gaps compared to competition.
(3) The Microsoft coverage gap closure project: In 2021 Microsoft reported addressing coverage gaps in comparison to their current map provider in many countries across the globe. A project was executed to close these gaps as soon as possible.
