Cécile in a few words

Je suis Program Manager / Senior Project Manager spécialisée dans les processus et outils Purchasing & Procurement (Source-to-Contract et Procure-to-Pay) ainsi que Travel & Expenses au sein de Grands Groupes Industriels (Chimie, Matériaux..).

Je fais particulièrement attention aux phases de préparation des projets du programme, en impliquant au plus tôt toutes les équipes concernées. Je veille à l’anticipation des impacts et des risques ainsi qu’à mettre en place une solide approche de conduite du changement.

J'ai de l'intérêt pour les projets transversaux (impliquant plusieurs Fonctions et/ou des Services Partagés) et je sais naviguer au sein d'organisations internationales et complexes.
J'apprécie de déployer des outils modernes (Saas, Mobile App, IoT,..).
