Pascal Baelen : I started as a Cobol programmer more than 20 years ago, writing interfaces & interactive programs on a BULL mainframe. Slowly, I added more and more tasks to this job, beginning with being a second line Help Desk, then Network Architect,  Software manager. A few years later, I became an IT internal trainer and coach for stakeholders, preparing internal trainings and courses. The programming in Cobol came to an end when I got more and more involved in project responsabilities, and my tasks moved more and more to managing areas. Since 2008, I became responsible for all CBSS (Crossroads Bank of Social Security) projects as a project manager, and the team also grew started using Agile methods. Today, I'm a Product Owner of all projects related to the CBSS, and I'm also a Webservices Specialist building the architecture and framework for different Webservices related projects.
