Solving complex puzzles in a chaotic and opinion-rich environment is what Peter loves to do. Through business consulting, process development and product ownership, he has joined growing organizations with an ambition to innovate and a need for professionalisation. After 8 valuable years working in the energy sector Peter made the switch to mobility where he currently works at the NS (Dutch Railways) as Product Owner for OV-fiets (bicycle rental).
How innovation is leading OV-fiets to 5 million rides in 2019
Ten years ago, the Dutch Railways introduced OV-fiets, the yellow-blue bike you can rent using your public transportation card. With more than 4 million rides in 2018, the pressure to perform is at an all-time high. In this session, Peter van de Pol (Product Owner of OV-fiets) and Remmert Stipdonk (CEO at INFO) will share how the team navigated through the corporate environment of NS, achieving 30% annual growth and innovating the core of the bike-sharing service.
