Professional project management is already for several decades Marco’s passion. He beliefs that with more professional project management, projects and programmes can be managed in a more predicable and more successful way, leading to higher customer satisfaction. By linking his knowledge and over 30 years of (project) management experience in The Netherlands and many countries abroad, as well as learning not only by himself but also through and from others, he has obtained a pretty good idea about what works and what doesn’t work in project management. In his role as project management consultant, trainer, coach and auditor he therefore supports organizations, project teams and individuals to do a better project management job.
Marco is next to his professional career with Balance and BPC from The Netherlands, IPMA PEA Team Lead Assessor and trainer, chairman of the IPMA-NL interest group on project planning and control and is member of the IPMA-NL Finance Committee and Chair of IPMA’s international Finance Committee. He is co-organizer of the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Diversity in Project Management (DiPM) conferences. Marco participates in several ISO TC 258 PM standard development committees like EVM, ISO 21.500 revamp and PM competences and is also author of a number of project management handbooks for industrial organizations and published and presented papers and facilitated workshops on project management related issues throughout the world.
