Allinq offers research opportunities
PDEng candidate Jitske is doing research into ways to install ‘Fiber to the Home’ faster, better, cheaper or more efficiently. Her approach: first obtain insight into the current situation, then experiment with process improvements.
The research is part of her post-master design education in Civil Engineering at the faculty of Engineering Technology at the University of Twente.
Improvements based on insight
Jitske works with the most plain-speaking Allinq team: the builders in the SCT department.
“That puts a smile on my face! I am allowed to run meetings with management and I stand at the side of the gutter with a stopwatch and a fancy yellow vest. I’m not clocking how hard people are working or comparing people to one another, but trying to get insight into the normal process. That insight into the current approach, sore points and successes is the first step towards improvement.”
I was surprised at how open they are at Allinq! The team I work in is nice, helpful and shares their ideas."
