Sandvik IT Services. It’s not you. It’s me….
I’ve decided it’s time to move on from Sandvik IT Services and do something else.
I started my professional career at Sandvik IT back in 2011. A young kid who didn’t really know what he wanted to do when he got older. I still don’t know, but now I have some sort of idea. I left Sandvik in 2013 and spent 4,5 years at Microsoft as a Windows consultant (or Workplace which it would be called today). In 2017 I decided to come back to Sandvik since some cool challenge was presented to me and an awesome manager was hiring.
During my time at Sandvik IT Services, we have done a ton of cool things.
- Rolling out Windows 10 in a large global environment
- Established servicing for Windows 10 and Office365 Pro Plus
- Changed hardware vendor
- Changed sourcing partner
- I got an internal award for Passion to win (first ever to get the award)
- Put Windows Autopilot in the production environment
- Put co-management into the production environment (SCCM)
- Established an awesome relationship with our partners and vendors
- Been disruptors in enterprise IT, tried making it more punk
- Established “no one remembers a coward” attitude in the team
- Evangelized digital transformation
- Engaged with next-generation information workers to get them to work with IT
- Talked at conferences
- Showed up in several of our vendor’s presentations and marketing material
There is even more cool stuff that I can’t think of right now.
I’ve really appreciated that I’ve been let to work towards my personal vision: everyone deserves a good digital workplace. During my time at Sandvik, I’ve really tried to reach this goal. Simple, effective, and smart workplace.
There is still work to be done, we can always improve.
I’ve also grown a lot as a person during my time at Sandvik. I’ve been given the possibility to explore and try new things. Pushing myself outside my comfort zone from time to time. But also realizing what I like doing and what I want to pursue. This is something I’m thankful that I was encouraged to do.
And finally. I’ve had so many awesome colleges. I will miss all off you terribly, not seeing you on a daily basis will leave a mark!
But now the time has come for me to move on and face new challenges. In mid-November, you will find me at Advania – Knowledge Factory as a Technical Specialist within Devices!
