Functional consultants are the link between business and IT.
Why is functional consultancy important?
Functional consultancy ensures that applications always work well and align with the organization’s needs. This minimizes disruptions and downtime, resulting in increased application availability.
End user satisfaction
Another aspect is ensuring that applications are intuitive and user-friendly for end users. This enhances the acceptance and utilization of the systems within the organization.
Collaboration and engagement
Functional consultants act as intermediaries between stakeholders and IT. They collaborate with various departments and understand the needs of stakeholders, enabling them to provide effective solutions.”
By minimizing disruptions, conducting updates more efficiently, and collaborating with IT teams, functional consultants contribute to long-term cost savings.
Functional consultancy bootcamp
On September 4, 2023, the functional consultancy bootcamp started at our office. Our trainees undergo a comprehensive and intensive training program lasting for 6 weeks. Afterwards, they are prepared for a challenging and full-fledged entry-level role as functional consultants within LINKIT. The trainees obtain their LEAN Green Belt, ITIL certificate, Agile/Scrum certificates, and participate in the professional training for Functional Consultancy Specialist, including certification.
The trainees are in for a highly educational experience. Learning doesn’t stop after the bootcamp, as the focus remains on deploying and expanding personal and technical knowledge, both after the bootcamp and during the first year!”
