Directeur de projet, Accor
« Advancy = methodology, efficiency, cross-business experience and agility, which are the tools for success in any professional environment »
I am now Project Director for Accor’s Global COO, after 10 years of experience in consulting, 7 of which I spent with Advancy.
I made the transition to this post very naturally, in fact. At Advancy, I developed a real passion for the tourism sector, I knew Accor very well and already enjoyed working with its teams. Accor is undergoing a major transformation and was looking for profiles capable of managing projects on an international scale. I am in charge of several cross-business projects, such as the organization of Accor in Europe, the roll out of the hotel reservation system worldwide, etc.
The experience I earned at Advancy is a major advantage in my current job. The four factors that I use the most today are: methodology, efficiency, cross-business experience and agility.
Methodology to make progress on complex issues,
Cross-business experience to make the most of the expertise of each team member and to prevent the “silo effect” characteristic of large groups,
Efficiency because in consulting we learn to work quickly on a wide variety of subjects,
Agility is a question of survival in a large group, especially when you come from a smaller, more entrepreneurial company like Advancy!
