PROJECT MANAGER PRODUCT INNOVATION
‘Developing a product is often technically challenging. But many more factors are important for successful development. Is the product commercially interesting, is the customer waiting for it, can we produce it reliably? All these things make product development complex, but also ensure that project management is interesting and varied. That is why it is extra nice when all these components come together in a successful product’.
“A PRODUCT CAN ONLY BE SUCCESFULL IF IT CAN BE PRODUCED RELIABLY.”
Sometimes, in a hectic project environment, Yorick Koumans ensures that the team can focus on what is important now. He quickly understands and sees through the technical challenges in a project and can explain this in a calm and clear manner. He strives for open communication and tries to remove as much uncertainty as possible from the process. Yorick knows not only how to develop and produce a product, but also how to guarantee production quality.
Yorick has worked at Promolding for the past seven years. This company combines high-tech and medical product development with its own production facility. He started here as a mechanical engineer and progressed to project manager. What he especially learned here is that product development is not finished when the design is finished. Development continues until products are fully validated and certified.
