My name is Carl Busschaert and I’m a Belgian citizen living in the Antwerp area. My career evolved so that I gradually moved from being a business analyst and developer in the CAD/CAM and PLM sectors to a project manager for all kinds of software implementation, software development, IT, company integration and process improvement projects. As most project professionals do, I’ve also obtained quite a few certificates, such as: PMI Project Management Professional (PMP), PRINCE2 Foundation certificate, Scrum Alliance ScrumMaster and the Prosci Change Management Certification.
I’m very passionate about aviation and as a private person I own a ULM license, a Private Pilot License (PPL) and I’m an RPAS-pilot Class 1 too. Despite the visible differences, both parts of my life have a lot in common. If you treat every private or professional flight as a project, analyse the targets, check alternatives, plan the route and identify the possible risks involved, there are a lot of similarities in being a pilot, a business analyst and a project manager.
