Jessica and Marie-Victoire, Project Directors at OWI, need the right skills to help our clients and make our solutions useful for key accounts. They recruit and support digital project managers, helping them play an important role in large companies’ digital transformation.
‘The first weeks as a project manager are very important. We have our own technology, which really motivates new team members. We always try to make the initial training, which is very specific, both comprehensive and accessible so that the project manager very quickly feels operational.’
‘Training for our approach is key. At OWI, we mostly work with industry-specific teams. We are here to understand their process and what is particular to their context, and help them change. The project manager has to be the main player in this transformation, by making our solutions useful to each industry.’
More than their role and their initial training, project managers’ soft skills and background make a big difference to how successful they will be at OWI.
At OWI, training is an important part of building skills. Project managers work on several projects to become familiar with our different products. We value team work and all collaborative tools that make communication and ongoing training easier.
‘I think we have developed specific expertise in improving our teams’ skills. For example, a junior project manager, after just a few months at OWI, became our go-to person for Dashboards for the whole project team!’
