För tredje gången delar CGI ut pris till Årets IT-kvinna för att hylla de kvinnor ...
What did you do before joining CGI?
Before I started at CGI, I did a bit of everything, so my resume is quite long. In my interview with CGI, I was asked, "How old are you really?”. But what is most related to what I do at CGI are my years at Axfood, where they implemented SAP. After that, I studied economics at Örebro University, worked as a project manager in marketing for a few years, was in the automation industry in a hybrid role where I would mainly drive digitization and most recently I worked in the Swedish Prison and Probation Service.
Why did you apply for the Accelerate program?
I got a message via LinkedIn with some information about the program. Accelerate is a perfect opportunity for someone like me, who has done many different things and not really found the "right" thing. It attracted me, because I felt I could make up for lost knowledge and experience in a very challenging and intense way.

What was the best thing about the program?
The best thing was clearly the width of what you got to try and the combination of learning theoretically at the same time as many of us were out on assignments and directly put knowledge into practice.
What was most challenging?
Perhaps the most challenging thing was to quickly get into a completely new group and solve complex problems together (cases and tasks we received during the training).
What knowledge did you get from the program?
I learned a lot about group dynamics but of course a lot about SAP, for example configuration which I have not tested before. We were also trained in the consulting role which is different from being employed.
What is your role today?
Today I am an SAP consultant in Stockholm. Where I work closely with the business with processes and quality assurance during the customers implementation of SAP S/4HANA.
What is the best thing about being a consultant?
The best thing is probably the versatility and challenge of having to deliver what a customer expects without always getting it stated.
Do you recommend applying to Accelerate and why?
Of course, it is a great way to go if you want to quickly get into the extremely large world of challenges, knowledge and future tools. In SAP, you are never fully-trained.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
Going forward, I want to continue to build a relatively comprehensive foundation within SAP, in order to be able to be challenged and develop in roles that are perhaps less specifically focused on part of the system or part of a project. I am passionate about the change issues that organizations encounter when implementing a new business system and want to be able to meet the customers in these issues.

How would you describe yourself?
I often get the comment that I am straightforward in my communication. I’m also curious, love quizzes and riddles for example. I like when I have a lot going on. (Impatient may be another word for it).
What do you do in your spare time?
On my spare time I like to work out, in a double sense. I work out and try to maintain some kind of shape. But I am also a handball coach for a group of teenage girls.
