You bridge the gap between IT technology, employees and organizations. You map out wishes and requirements, give direction to what is needed and transfer this to the specialists who build the software. You do this by thinking in terms of both technology and business. You are able to understand, fathom and analyze organizations and people. And you can bring all of this together in improvement proposals, in line with your vision and the vision of a company. For example, you help a company to change in line with new, digital trends. Or you help people with the implementation of automation.
