    Change management

    Sorry for not writing in some weeks. We have made an organisational change at work and that has stolen all of my focus. It has been a real challenge to understand how to handle different HR matters in another country but of course also very instructive. When you work with change management one big challenge […]

    Education key to a brighter future

    In the little Indian village of Jodikrishnapura, 120 children have finally got a proper English language teacher. Scania pays her salary – and hopes that one day some of her students will come to work at the production facility located right next to the school.

    Up and running again…

Every day, there is at least one meeting with a new person that affects me in one way or another. Sometimes the meeting could be […]

    A look into the future

    With instant information projected directly onto the windshield in a new prototype simulator, Scania’s developers look at how the future driver environment should look like.

    Week 15: Writing

    In this project time flies. I never thought 15 weeks of my life could pass by so fast. Me and Lisa have been developing a slightly modified classification algorithm using an Associative Classifier. It took us a lot more time than we though, and I think it mainly was because we decided to use a […]

    Lots going on!

    Scania has truly a lot to offer it’s colleagues! In my case, it feels like I’m currently doing a lot of other stuff, except the things directly connected to my original assignments. Not sure what it’s called, but one of the things I’m doing extra at the moment is godparenting (Not sure if Google gave […]
