Title: 
Enterprise Transformation Coach
Company: AE
Session Title: Evolution to a network organization with empowered teams using TP3

A few years ago, the CEO of AE, Bruno Denys, was inspired by Niels Pflaeging’s talk: 'Organize for Complexity'. Bruno Lefever's talk will reflect this inspiration, and share ways to trigger and motivate high performing people, in order to ultimately stimulate their entrepreneurship to achieve a higher grade of professional well-being.

Bruno will walk you through AE’s transformation journey of evolving from a traditional hierarchical organization to a network organisation. People and professional motivation are the driving forces in such a transformation. The session will illustrate this using real life examples on how Targetprocess was used to enable change. Get ready to learn about backlogs based on networked collaboration and short term value creation.

Bio

Inspired by methodological work, Bruno began his career in 1988 as an analyst-developer, and acquired the basic skills of model driven software engineering. He’s been convinced of this approach from the very beginning.

He continued his career as a consultant and worked on numerous consultancy assignments. These assignments had one common denominator: organizing work based on a structured methodology. He delivered successfully a broad range of assignments in various industries (insurance, telecom, banking, services, utility, etc.) on functional analysis, ICT architecture, strategic architectural work, business-ICT alignment, business improvement, and project/program management.

In 2004, Bruno acquired the PMI project management professional certificate (PMP). He joined AE in 2006 as a competence center manager, coordinating the various competence centers for business ICT alignment. Apart from this, Bruno kept an active consultancy role in various recent assignments: project management, enterprise architecture and strategic alignment.

Originally primarily active in IT departments, he extended his activities to the full breadth of an organization to serve business improvement needs by working on communication between business and technical departments.

The basis of nearly 30 years experience in the consultancy business (business and ICT side) gives Bruno a wide ‘chameleon’ capability, allowing him to suggest and apply corrective actions for strategic projects.

He has an in depth understanding in the following domains and has put these into practice in recent missions:

• Change management • Business improvement • Quality management • Methodology based solutions and approaches • Service-centric systems engineering • Component based analysis and architectures • Business – IT alignment • IT strategy • Agile teamwork • Project management, PMI implementations. • Rescue of complex projects in trouble • Applying agile at scale • Agile transformation of organizations
