Lore Alders

Technology Consulting Manager, Natural Resources

Brussels, Belgium


"We take a bird’s eye view of the problem, evaluate different solutions and imagine what the new processes will look like."

What I do

I’m a tech transformer, and part of my role is to lead our Industry X.0 practice for natural resources in Brussels.

My projects are specifically in the production or maintenance area, where I’m responsible for executing a defined strategy. It’s about understanding and responding to clients’ particular objectives, which could be to improve productivity or reduce costs. Or it could be to help them to introduce a much-needed tool. We take a bird’s eye view of the problem, evaluate different solutions and imagine what the new processes will look like.

It’s very hands-on. We’ll start with a pilot. If that looks feasible we’ll move into implementation, setting the schedule and defining what activities are needed. I love the start-to-finish involvement of my role and the opportunity to develop long-term client relationships.

A day in my life

My day is both external and internal facing. I’ll connect with the client on-site to get things going, deal with planning or follow-up activities, or liaise with the Accenture team to make sure that everything is on track.

Wearing my Industry X.0 hat, I’ll meet with client account leads to evaluate their clients’ needs and provide support on a particular solution. Each month there will be a community meeting where we’ll discuss live projects or a new technology.

My advice

Take on different roles. Try new things. Ask yourself what you really enjoy doing and how you feel you can add value on a particular project. Typically, the things you like doing are the things you’ll be really good at, and will win you the appreciation of your colleagues.

There are a lot of hours in the working day—you can spend more time with your team than you do with your family! Surround yourself with people who you feel comfortable with and who will really help in busy periods or with difficult situations.
