Project management PMP, Strategy, R&D, Innovation


Making my company innovate like a start-up (almost)

After +10 years of R&D and Innovation projects, with high complexity, high technological contents and multiple stakeholders, I am now in charge of running the Product Strategy and Innovation at AREVA Installed Base. As a side activity, I am a speaker, founder of, writer and facilitator in the field of creativity, innovation methods, innovation management (incl. innovative project management, R&D management, lean start-up, Design thinking, UX...), innovative problem solving and idea management.

As part of the group which has defined the AREVA Group Innovation strategy under the Board control, I implement this path at the business level for the French Installed Base Business Unit (+1500 employees).

Backing up with R&D, I use my skills in R&D and Innovation processes to define, arbitrate and follow the global roadmap for Product & Services Development in order to foster innovation and innovation mindset. I run projects to deploy the Innovation mindsets into the organisation, a successful suggestion box, innovative continuous improvements tools, creativity methods and innovation support tools such as incubator. I am also in charge of the Digital Transformation projects of my entity.

As a project manager, PMP credited, I have run lots of strategic projects in various field (transportation, energy, space...). Multicultural, multi-sites, heterogeneous teams are familiar to me.
My extensive PM experience has been granted in 2011 by the PMP credential. So I use today those skills to perform my task in an advanced project mode as a transfunctionnal Program Manager.

I have definitely a strong passion for innovative and R&D projects and processes, for products development, organizations and services.

As pro-bono consultants I help small/intermediate businesses to set-uo their innovation organisation incl. R&D, Innovation, Collective intelligence

I am open to new opportunities and challenges.
