How I developed the Rolls Royce among UHF readers

When Kiman (42) first came into contact with Nedap six years ago through a squash buddy, he thought it was something extraordinary: unlimited vacations, no fixed training budgets, a lot of freedom to fill in your job the way you want to and above all, short lines of communication with other teams.

Well, do you remember the sort of ‘Teacher evaluation’ form that you fill in at the end of each quartile? These votes then result in the final award winner. ...

Transitioning to a new educational system

Seven years ago, the University of Twente introduced TOM, the Twente Educational Model (Twents Onderwijs Model in Dutch. Using TOM, the bachelors were built up of coherent modules, each containing a collection of courses in the same field and a project to put the acquired knowledge into practice. The goal was student development according to the T-shaped model, which means that students are able to utilize their knowledge in a broader context next to being strong in their respective discipline. ...
