Let’s admit it: we all have moments that we are craving to go back to those times when we were complaining about the huge amount of work after waking up at noon and still recovering from the evening before. Alas – without being rude – these days have passed for most of us. This also implies that participating in the Delaware Game of Operational Excellence is no longer an option. As a consolation, we give you a glimpse behind the scenes of this business game.

Trying to understand what an SAP consultant does

One year ago, October 2013. We started our last year as a student. At that moment, we never expected the busy and exciting year that was about to begin. First on the agenda was graduating, but being a graduating student also meant thinking about what came after the life as a student. Would we start looking for a job? Extend our knowledge with an extra year at university? Or travel the world and look for opportunities abroad?

No… Yes… It depends…
This is my answer to the question whether it is easy to combine working as a senior manager at Delaware Consulting and being the mum of a now 3-year-old, cute, little girl called Alena.

Don’t you miss sleeping until noon, attending classes with your friends, being spoiled at Hotel Mama during the exams, etc.? Last year, I did a backpacking trip in Norway with my colleague Simon Nuttin. On one particular evening, we were sitting in front of our tent with a glass of wine in our hands and we were thinking back to how great it was being a student. We also thought about all the things we would do differently if we could do it all over again.  One of these things was our quest for a job. We had started our job search totally random, on a job fair, going to the companies with the prettiest logos that offered the nicest gadgets. We started going to job interviews and when Delaware Consulting offered us a contract, we were thrilled to say yes. But what was this decision based on? Two and a half years later I am very happy that I like my job, my company and my colleagues, but I guess for many others this is not always the case. That is when we started thinking what we could do about this. How could we let students get a taste of their future job, company and colleagues? Two weeks later, we started working on the Delaware Game of Operational Excellence.

Any occasion to freely quote Captain Picard from Star Trek is a good occasion. So a blog post with the title ‘The next generation’ leaves me no choice:

“Delaware Consulting…their first experience. This is the introduction of our new junior consultants. Their continuing mission is to explore new worlds (SAP, MS, OpenText), to seek out new functional and technical solutions, to boldly go where no business-it consultant has gone before! Here are 9 more Delawarians.”
