I’m passionate about project management. In the past 20 years I've enjoyed broad experience in managing international, multi-cultural and challenging projects and programs. I specialize in running high-profile projects and programs in an agile way. My strength is bringing structure, but always with a pragmatic perspective.

Jacques is an extremely capable senior program manager with excellent project management skills. In programs he has continuously performed on high level in complex business settings and achieved the ambitious objectives under difficult circumstances. He combines leadership and team player behaviour to keep the team(s) moving and to communicate effectively with all stakeholders

I graduated in 1992 in Computer Sciences at the Technical University of Delft, chair of Knowledge Based Systems. I've had the privilege to spend my military service as an officer at sea with the Royal Dutch Navy. Shortly after I started my career in 1994 as developer of pension applications for Espact. In 1995 I put my study knowledge to use at Bolesian, which specialized in Knowledge Based Systems. Starting out as an analyst/knowledge engineer, I soon discovered my passion for project management as a project lead. The merger of Bolesian and Capgemini in 2001, allowed me to manage larger assignments. IPMA BAs Principal Consultant, I joined the PM Profession Board in 2012 - next to my regular project and program management activities - becoming responsible for the training curriculum of 400 project managers. I was also the global content owner of Capgemini's PM Practitioner Course and delivered PM trainings on a regular basis for Capgemini University. In 2015 I founded PMx together with my colleague Jurgen Bluemink. I've obtained my IPMA-B Senior Project Manager certification in 2016.

Next to the drive I have for my work, I'm also a passionate private pilot. My flying home base is at the Eindhovense Aeroclub Motorvliegen (EACm). By combining my insights in aviation and project management, I bring these togehter to provide a unique view on project management. I share this in conferences, project management communities and through my blog.

Bring me into your project and you will get a senior program / project manager with a proven track record and experience with:

  • agile delivery, also in larger programs
  • project management and delivery approaches, from RUP, Prince2, Scrum, Scaled Agile to MSP
  • IPMA-B Senior Project Manager certified
  • international projects and offshore development
  • delivery of fixed price - fixed date projects
  • both custom software development (.Net, Java) and package implementations (SAP, Oracle, CRM, BI)
  • recovery of stranded projects
  • software validation (FDA)
  • a wide range of industry sectors - from government to insurance to high-tech manufacturing
  • PM coaching and training
  • test management (a.o. TMap)

I'm open for various sorts of assignments (e.g. giving a 2nd opinion on a running project or PM/agile coaching), but specialize in leading challenging, large scale agile software implementations.
