You answer complex questions and help a colleague get started.

You will then have a meeting about an administratively sensitive file with the team leader and councilor. You have worked out a good solution for this conversation that is acceptable to all parties. You now have time to prepare the residents’ evening for a new construction project. You created the design together with your colleague from the policy department, the client and the architect. You call a local resident who would like to be kept informed and ensure that the developer is well aware of the concerns. With your helicopter view and neutral attitude, this residents’ evening will go well.

Time for lunch, so you walk around with a colleague and leave the building. You then briefly join the other colleagues in the company restaurant to check whether there are any complex questions.

In the afternoon you will focus on an administrative proposal to submit a large new construction project to the council. You have an hour for this, because afterwards there will be a meeting with colleagues from the policy department for the further development of the crumb policy. As a real link between policy and implementation, you know what it takes to create clear and implementable policy. Just before you log out, send some information to the knowledge manager about a change in important legislation, so that your colleagues can continue with that information. Finally, you report to the key user of the new workflow system that you have come up with a solution for a new step in the process. There are still a number of decisions ready, you check them carefully and sign them so that they can be sent.

At the end of the day, you go home with enough energy to exercise in the evening, after which you log in to see how your council proposal is discussed in the council meeting.
