The Millenials Versus ISO21500

Frisse Blikken is a young and new, millennials driven organization who, without being drilled with the PMI nor the IPMA way of working and terminology, found their own novice way of making sure that their customer projects are kept under control. They work with entrepreneurial spirits and aim to refresh, rejuvenate and speed up complex corporate projects. They work in a very modern, flexible and co-creative way to improve change projects with customers. This fresh way of looking at projects will be put against the latest and greatest in project management guidelines for project success: the “ISO 21500 -Guidance on Project Management”.


Mr. Ties de Vos is ‘Blik’ representative and practice leader of the ’Transformation on Track’ theme at Frisse Blikken. He will share how their projects are managed and how they involve stakeholders and achieve results. Their focus is on thinking three steps ahead, creating experiences, giving insight and overview data and facts to help the client communicate with stakeholders. This way of working will be compared to how Arcadis is doing project management these days: Mr. Louk Dielen, M.Sc., Performance Excellence Leader Project Management Europe at Arcadis will share how Arcadis was looking for an approach to align their project management execution and found ISO21500 as a framework that could do just that! Considering that, on a high level, ISO21500 contains 75% of the PMI intellectual legacy, you can imagine that structure and a common language are taken care of. How could the approach of Frisse Blikken work at Arcadis and what can the two companies (and you!) learn from each other?

The evening will be closed by Mr. Rommert Stellingwerf, past president of our chapter and consultant at The PMO Company. Mr. Stellingwerf is participating in the workgroup of ISO21500 and as such he will share with us the latest and greatest of the status as well as the new developments for ISO2015.

So an evening to ‘Think Outside the Box (Blik)’ and an evening to bring you up to date on the more structural and methodological side of Project Management.
