Brainport hubs abroad can export and enhance the region’s success
- About Brainport
Holland Innovative has played a key role in the success story of Brainport Eindhoven for years. So it was high time to capture that story, which revolves around an integral way of systems engineering, in a book. “The Complete Project Manager”, written by Roel Wessels, is now available in Dutch, English, and German. It is an important addition to the already existing training courses.
The book by Roel Wessels, Senior Director Project Management and Technology at Holland Innovative, makes the connection between the worlds of high tech and project management. "Our region is world-class in the multidisciplinary development and production of state-of-the-art, high-tech equipment", says CEO Hans Meeske of Holland Innovative. "In our training courses, we have been helping companies to connect with this for years. This book is an important addition."
The Complete Project Manager is the book in which the specific approach to systems engineering that characterizes Brainport Eindhoven plays the leading role. Whereas the English version was still primarily used by non-Dutch speakers from that region, the German version really takes the book a step across the border. This makes the success of Brainport even more concrete.
Companies such as Bosch, MTU, Zeiss, and the University of Stuttgart - already partners of Holland Innovative for training and courses - can start using the book immediately. The book deals with the interplay between the world of high tech and project management. Wessels pays attention to the total playing field of project management theories, from traditional to the latest Agile insights, and shows how everything is logically connected and can be applied together. Under the motto "project management is structuring plus influencing" a lot of attention is also given to the power of credible leadership. Anyone who starts reading The Complete Project Manager will immediately discover that showing leadership and taking responsibility is actually incredibly cool.
