The Reference - Team leader Strategy and Analysis
As a business analyst and online strategist, I'm involved in both the strategic and business phase of an Internet project. Where the strategic parts focusses on the strategic objectives and KPI's of a project, the business phase is all about translating the business requirements into attractive and easy to use web applications.

I started to work for The Reference as a project manager, which is the ideal seat to learn all about the Internet Business from inside.
