E2. Intercultural Competences: What Does it Take to Collaborate Effectively?

Monique_banner

About the workshop:
In this practical workshop, we will take a case-oriented approach to intercultural communication and working in an international context. Together we will explore a number of actual academic and business cases to see what happened and what pitfalls were. We will share insights based on academic research and on personal experiences. We will explore ways to create a collaborative atmosphere across cultural boundaries in the context of these cases. The focus will be on asking the right questions and exploring options rather than providing clear-cut answers. In the context of team work, job interviews or networking, it is essential to develop a collaborative atmosphere where others want to listen to us and benefit from our expertise. This takes among others genuine interest in others, listening and delaying judgement. If you enjoy the challenge of intercultural communication, you are very welcome to join this workshop.

As a trainer and coach of intercultural communication and management skills, Monique aims at creating a positive learning environment for students. She has been contributing to that individual exploration for several years now and still greatly enjoys it, both at the university (FEB for the past 9 years) and in business (7 years of training teams in the public and private sectors, and communication training at the European Central Bank for 3 years).   Having lived and worked abroad (England, Iceland, South Africa, Tanzania, Vietnam), she has come to appreciate both the joy and challenges of intercultural encounters. Learning to manage diversity starting with cultural self-awareness is fundamental for working in an international context, and it is Monique’s drive to explore this with students.

F3. De toekomst van het Nederlandse pensioenstelsel!

TKP_banner

Over de workshop:

Note: This workshop is in Dutch; therefore, speaking Dutch fluently is required.

Eén van de belangrijkste fundamenten van het Nederlandse pensioenstelsel is solidariteit. Nederland heeft een doorsneepremie systematiek, waarbij iedereen dezelfde premie betaalt en hetzelfde pensioen opbouwt, ongeacht individuele kenmerken. Deze solidariteit dreigt onbetaalbaar te worden door de stijgende levensverwachting en daarom wordt de belofte nakomen dat toegezegde pensioenen waardevast blijven steeds moeilijker. De pensioenfondsen zijn niet voldoende om op lange termijn aan de uitkeringsverplichtingen te voldoen, waardoor een geïndividualiseerd pensioenstelsel geopperd wordt.

In deze interactieve workshop gaan we op zoek naar alternatieve methoden om het Nederlandse pensioenstelsel te organiseren, waarbij we ook zullen kijken naar andere landen. In kleine teams zal gewerkt worden aan een voorstel voor onze staatssecretaris van Sociale Zaken en minister van Financiën. Aan het einde van de workshop zullen de voorstellen kort gepitcht worden en het team met het beste idee ontvangt een leuke prijs!

Over de organisatie:
TKP is een moderne, efficiënte en betrouwbare pensioenuitvoeringsorganisatie. TKP ondersteunt ruim 30 pensioenfondsen en zorgt zo voor de pensioenadministratie van zo’n 3,1 miljoen Nederlanders. Dit wordt gedaan door meer dan 700 medewerkers vanuit Groningen en omgeving. De hoge servicekwaliteit en betrokkenheid van medewerkers zorgt al jarenlang voor hoge klanttevredenheid.

Over de instructeurs:
Nikita Florisson-Bos werkt als pensioenanalist bij TKP. Nikita heeft haar PhD aan de FEB gedaan en is daarna bij TKP gaan werken. Nikita is als pensioenanalist verantwoordelijk voor de vertaalslag van pensioenregelingen, reglementen en contracten naar pensioenaanspraken en premies.

Marianne Nijenbanning werkt als Project Management Officer bij TKP. In haar functie is ze verantwoordelijk voor de inrichting, uitvoering, bewaking, samenhang, documentatie en rapportage van projecten om zodoende de projectorganisatie te ondersteunen bij de uitvoering van projecten, portfolio’s en programma’s. Denk hierbij aan ondersteunende taken op het gebied van o.a. planning & control, risk & issue management en kwaliteitsmanagement. Daarnaast ontwikkelt ze momenteel een standaard methodologie die ervoor moet zorgen dat de projecten overeenkomen met de corporate doelen en strategieën van TKP.

F4. Take a Stand in Leadership

Army_banner

About the workshop:

About the organisation:
The Royal Netherlands Army is the land forces element of the military of the Netherlands. It was raised on 9 January 1814; however, its origins date back to 1572, when the so-called Staatse Leger was raised. Therefore, the Netherlands has one of the oldest standing armies in the world, dating back to the 16th century. It fought during the Napoleonic Wars, World War II, the Indonesian War of Independence, Korean War, and served with NATO on the Cold War frontiers in Germany from the 1950s to the 1990s. Since 1990, the army has deployed to the Iraq War from 2003 and the War in Afghanistan (2001-present), as well as a number of United Nations peacekeeping deployments, notably with UNIFIL in Lebanon, UNPROFOR in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1992 and MINUSMA in Mali.

Infantry is the general branch of an army that engages in military combat on foot. As the troops who engage with the enemy in close-ranged combat, infantry units bear the largest brunt of warfare. Historically, as the oldest branch of the combat arms, the infantry are the tip of the spear of a modern army, and continually undergo training that is typically more physically stressful and psychologically demanding than that of any other branch of the combat arms.
Infantry can enter and maneuver in terrain that is inaccessible to military vehicles and employ crew-served infantry weapons that provide greater and more sustained firepower. The transport and delivery techniques of modern infantrymen to engage in battle include marching, mechanised transport, airborne by parachute or by air assault from helicopter and amphibious landing from the sea.

About the instructors:
Peter Marx is an Infantry officer of the Royal Netherlands Army. He has been deployed three times: as leader of a combat group to Afghanistan and Iraq and as operations officer also to Afghanistan.

Erik Derks is also an Infantry officer. He has been deployed three times to Afghanistan: two times as leader of a combat group and once as intelligence officer.

F6. Consultancy en projectmanagement in het publieke domein

Significant_banner

Over de workshop:          

Note: This workshop is in Dutch; therefore, speaking Dutch fluently is required.  

De implementatie van een IT-project ter ondersteuning van de politie, de veiligheidsregio’s en het ministerie van Veiligheid en Justitie bij de opsporing en aanpak van veelplegers komt niet van de grond. Het openbaar ministerie vraagt jou om samen met je onderzoeksteam van Significant uit te zoeken waarom dit niet is gelukt. Ook ben je gevraagd om een plan te schrijven voor een wél succesvolle implementatie en dit ook te begeleiden. Een project waarin kwalitatief onderzoek, data-analyse, advies en projectmanagement samenkomen. Tijdens de workshop stel je met je team een projectplan dat niet alleen onderzoekstechnisch goed in elkaar zit, maar ook oog heeft voor de politieke gevoeligheden in het veld. Daarnaast is er voldoende ruimte om je vragen te stellen over het adviesvak en over wie en wat Significant is.

Over de organisatie:                      
Significant is een onafhankelijk advies- én onderzoeksbureau dat zich richt op maatschappelijke vraagstukken. Het bedrijf vertaalt organisatiebeleid en -strategie naar een optimale bedrijfsvoering en ontwikkelen en evalueren beleid en strategie op het gebied van maatschappelijke thema's. Daarnaast zijn er binnen Significant verschillende start-ups actief, waaronder Significant Data analytics (SDA). SDA vertaalt gestructureerde en ongestructureerde data naar betekenisvolle inzichten én gaat proactief op zoek naar nieuwe toepassingen en oplossingen. Dit wordt niet gedaan vanuit een technisch oogpunt, maar redenerend vanuit specifieke domeinkennis, de maatschappelijke bedoeling en de context van de klanten.

Over de instructeurs:
Nadat Danielle Turmel haar studies Euroculture en Internationale Betrekkingen in Groningen had afgerond is zij bij Significant aan de slag gegaan. Ze houdt zich voornamelijk bezig met bedrijfsvoering binnen de publieke sector. Dit betekent alles wat met inkoop te maken heeft (en er wordt wat ingekocht bij de overheid), zoals het geven van trainingen aan inkoopmedewerkers en projecten die te maken hebben met leveranciers- en contractmanagement, procesmanagement en circulair inkopen.

Na het behalen van zijn bachelordiploma sociologie en masterdiploma publiek management (beiden in Utrecht) werkte Jaap Meijer twee jaar als management trainee. Op 1 september heeft hij de tweede stap in zijn loopbaan gemaakt en is bij Significant aan de slag gegaan als adviseur/onderzoeker. Jaap houdt zich bij Significant bezig met projecten binnen het sociaal domein, de zorg en veiligheid en justitie. Opdrachtgevers van deze projecten zijn voornamelijk gemeenten en ministeries.
