Laura Nicolàs Lorente had first started working with Dynamics NAV back in 2005 in the support department, mostly solving functional issues and doubts. She soon jumped to full deployment, that is, consultation, analysis, development, implementation, migration, training, and support.
Right from the beginning, she realized that it was very important for a Dynamics NAV consultant to have a deep knowledge of business workflows. Technical skills were just not enough. So she started to train herself in accounting, taxation, supply chain, logistics, and so on. She discovered a whole new world and she found it very interesting.
After having enough consultancy experience, she got to manage the first project on her own. It was then that she realized that technical and business knowledge was not enough; she also needed management skills. This is why, after reading different management books and trying different approaches with the projects she worked on, she decided to deepen her knowledge by doing a Master's in Project Management. She is now transitioning to Agile Management and Agile Development for better
success in projects.
She continues her training in three areas—technology, business workflows, and management—whenever she gets the chance.
The Internet is a huge source of inspiration for her. She actively participates in group discussions, posts on forums and blogs, reads books, and so on. She also contributes by sharing her knowledge and experience with the Spanish Dynamics NAV community.
