About Luuk's work as a consultant
I started as a consultant at Supply Value in October 2019, after I completed the master Organizational Design & Development at Radboud University in Nijmegen. The master focuses on designing organizational structures and managing the associated changes in such a way that on the one hand the primary process is affected as little as possible by external disturbances, while on the other hand the work remains meaningful and challenging for the employees. A very people-oriented focus, which I am fortunate to see in the way we work at Supply Value.
Below is a selection of the assignments that Luuk has completed so far.
Every ten minutes a train Rotterdam-Schiphol-Arnhem (ProRail / NS)
Since February 2020 I have been participating in a collaboration program between ProRail and NS in which we are implementing all kinds of measures that make it possible to go from 4 to 6 Intercity trains per hour per 2022 timetable on the route between Rotterdam, Schiphol and Arnhem. I believe in public transport as a means of transport of the future, so I am proud to play a role in increasing the capacity of public transport to meet the increasing demand. I find that I have experienced a very steep learning curve during my time with the program, which has helped me expand my role in the program.
I started out with mainly supporting tasks, but was soon able to pick up things like coming up with a plan to measure the effect of each measure, or co-designing and executing a 14-week learning cycle in which we test the new timetable in practice. I particularly enjoyed doing the latter: by collecting what people wanted to learn in the operation and then using the existing structures to set up a learning cycle that fits in with this, we were able to learn a lot. I got a lot of energy from asking the employees who make sure that the trains run on time every day outside about how they think their own work could be improved: it's wonderful to see how well people want to think along and cooperate with each other. what good ideas they come up with when you ask them.
