Here you have either acquired managerial skills, or you have obvious leadership ambitions and potential. It is vital that you have experience in developing targets and strategies in close collaboration with management teams.

In addition, you are well versed within change management and able to set the standards and contribute to central cLEAN activities. You might have proven to be a successful Project Manager, and if you have a Six Sigma certification, it will indeed be a plus.

Strong interpersonal skills are a must, and you are able to communicate seamlessly with people across all organisational levels and professional domains. Moreover, you possess a natural drive and the ability to inspire and motivate people. Finally, you have good business understanding. Your IT skills include at least MS Office and preferably statistical tools, and you know how to make clear and precise presentations.
