About working at Improven

Improven is the most fun consultancy company for challenging projects. Are you looking for challenging work where your creativity and enthusiasm are appreciated? Together with you, we ensure the right balance between work and private life, but also between your professional and personal development.

Improven improves organisational performance by optimising processes and information provision. We do this from a Finance, IT and Risk perspective. We like to work intensively together, with Improven colleagues with diverse expertise, but of course also with the customer's people.

We don't leave until it works and is secured. No thick reports but working solutions and implementation power.

Our commitment goes beyond the people in our own organisation and those at our customers' premises. We would be happy to tell you more about our social commitment. For us, diversity and inclusion is not an issue, but a statement. Our distinctiveness is that we do not discriminate.

The team

Our Projects & Change team specialises in achieving change by designing, managing and supporting projects and project organisations with our own pragmatic approach. We base our designs on our own and market best practices. To achieve the best solution, we combine methodologies such as Kanban, Scrum, Prince2, P3O, MSP and MOP in hybrid forms. We understand agile working, but also see the added value of waterfall and especially the combination of both ways of thinking.

The Projects & Change team operates on two types of assignments: we often help our clients by fulfilling roles as Project Manager, Scrum Master, PMO-er or Project Portfolio Manager. Together with Improven's colleagues and the client, we are active on various projects, such as system implementations, reorganisations or process optimisations. But just as often, we professionalise the customer's Project & Portfolio Management, by defining or selecting together an unambiguous approach, organisation and associated tooling, and of course implementing it. This also includes training and coaching project managers and clients. We only leave when the projects are running well and the project portfolio is under control.

Important to know! 

Improven does not employ bosses and directors, but leaders with vision who seek collaboration and knowledge sharing with everyone in the organisation.

We share knowledge so that we grow together, strengthen each other and together achieve the best results, creative ideas and the most appropriate solutions. The highest attainable quality of service and service provision is the goal we want to achieve. Together.
