Shipbuilding for non-shipbuilders - Marstrat

Shipbuilding for non-shipbuilders – An introduction to the maritime domain

Jenny Coenen |

On November 7th, Marstrat’s Jenny Coenen helped consultants from Deloitte gain more insight into the maritime domain. During the workshop shipbuilding for non-shipbuilders she introduced the ins and outs of the maritime industry to generic consultants who are involved with the industry. But have no specific knowledge of it. The workshop aimed to bridge this gap.

With its dazzling view on Rotterdam and its surroundings, the 35th floor of the Maastoren formed an inspiring scene for an introduction to Shipbuilding. Some forty Deloitte consultants participated in Marstrat’s Shipbuilding-for-non-Shipbuilders workshop, delivered by Shipbuilding Processes consultant Jenny Coenen. The topics of the workshop included: shipbuilding industry, basic ship design theory, ship construction and maritime trends. All in a nutshell, but with the goal to become better equipped for working on projects in a maritime setting.

The workshop has been developed by Jenny Coenen (who also is part-time teacher/researcher at TU Delft) in order to bridge the gap between more generic ICT and/or Business consultants and maritime domain specialists. The course should help to speak the maritime terminology and understand the characteristics of the maritime industry better. The workshop is a combination of presentation and interactive elements (that can be tailored to the audience and extended with elements of serious gaming or case-study assignments). Deloitte opted for the 3 hour version, but of course the topics allow for extension, in order to deal with more advanced content matter.
