Natalia joined the company almost 13 years ago as a Junior Consultant in the Business Intelligence team. She is originally Argentinian, and prior to joining LafargeHolcim, studied and worked in the US and Spain. For her, that was a real eye-opener experience. That’s why the position at LafargeHolcim was particularly appealing for her because she knew she would have an accelerated professional development and a multicultural work environment.
What work are you most proud of?
That would definitely be the Agile Transformation we are going through right now. This exciting journey started in the First Half of 2019 with the optimization of our Demand and Delivery processes using a Lean approach, eliminating wastes and incorporating a few significant improvements and continued during the Second Half with the implementation of Agile Frameworks and Tools leading to a huge mindset change. Our teams are learning rapidly and constantly, self-organizing, visualizing the flow of work, collaborating daily, and defining new rules in front of their Kanban Boards to optimize the delivery of quality solutions that bring value to our customers.
What do you love about working here?
I love the diversity and dynamic work environment, as well as the fact that we have multiple ongoing projects and lots of opportunities for continuous learning and developing new skills.
What is your favorite day during the working week?
My favorite day of the working week is Friday, like for everyone else. However, if I had to pick one day from Monday to Thursday, that would be Monday! Yeah… crazy as it may sound… But I like “new beginnings.” Mondays bring the opportunity for a fresh start into a new week and, with that, the chance for getting organized with a rested brain after recharging batteries over the weekend.
