Career story: Clara Forsskåhl

I have worked in the IT-industry my entire working life, delivering IT services and projects for the top 50 industry clients in Finland. While I was with my first employer in the mid 1990s, I was a project manager. Since then, I have been working in ERP as a consultant and a project manager. In order to grow as a professional and strengthen my project manager skills, I decided to get a PMP certification. I have been an active member of the PMI organization, having served on the Finnish board. During over 20 years in the IT industry, I’ve seen the shift in project management from waterfall to agile and have adopted the agile mindset. It supports the way digital transformations are carried out in organizations and also helps my work in the programs.   

I was not familiar with Midagon when they contacted me and wanted to talk about a job opportunity. I had some friends who had worked with the company. I did some research on the company and found that Midagon’s consultants can really focus on doing what they like and are good at. In my previous work, I had seen clients struggling with their projects. The focus of the assignments at Midagon is often on the client’s side of the table. That is exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to help the clients run their IT projects with the chosen IT supplier. When I decided to join Midagon, I noticed that the people here were similar-minded.  Everyone at Midagon has extensive experience a long career history. Therefore, we can rely on and trust each other. The result is an open and warm atmosphere. 

During my time at Midagon, my sole focus has been on one large ERP program. It has turned out to be a good fit for me. I have really enjoyed the project and learned a lot. Whenever I need support or ask a question, I can always just ask openly. I feel like I can concentrate fully on the client, with Midagon providing freedom and support. We always strive to produce the desired results for the client. However, at Midagon we laugh with each other, and things are not that serious. I am always happy to support my colleagues and help to develop the company, whenever my project allows it. 

Although Midagon has been growing rapidly, it still feels like a small family-owned company. I don’t feel like a needle in a haystack. This is because of the small positive actions taken by Midagon, such as little gifts or celebrations and get-togethers.
