Stefaan Vandooren guides medium-sized companies in setting up and improving their Supply Chain in a local and international context. Stefaan Vandooren has extensive experience in warehouse and inventory management, planning, forecasting and transportation.

Stefaan completed an IT education and first worked as an analyst-programmer. He developed and implemented various software for forecasting and inventory management.

After several (management) courses, Stefaan worked as a manager including forecasting, logistics and supply chain at several large international companies. He implemented new inventory management models, transferred the supply chain philosophy and improved the efficiency of warehouses, processes, organization ...

Stefaan's powerful outside-the-box thinking came from a combination of analytical thinking and creativity. He learned to bridge the gap between management, business operations and IT.

Now Stefaan independently provides coaching and training in supply chain management and you can engage him as a consultant, interim or project manager.

Companies are faced with rapidly changing markets, new regulations and evolving technologies. This means: always an opportunity for improvement.

Stefaan has been internationally active in Supply Chain Management for over twenty years. As a Change Manager, he makes the link between IT, Operational and Strategic Management, e.g. in the context of:

implementation of (new) software, techniques and technologies
competitive advantage through efficiency improvements
restructuring of the supply chain
He achieves strategic objectives by aligning and embedding organization, processes, systems and people in your business. This ensures sustainability, continuity and improved results.

Stefaan helps to convey the 'big picture' while going into detail. He efficiently applies the new ideas, principles and regulations and integrates them into the specific context of your company.

Stefaan wrote a book on Change Management in collaboration with Mark Coenen.

Some satisfied readers about Stefaan's book (Dutch) 'Succesvol verandering implementeren':


Oh no, just another book about change, there we go again from "as is to to be". I confess, I was wrong. This book is a powerful tool. Read it and use it; your company, your employees and yourself will benefit." - M. Van den Steen

'In change, you walk an ... unknown path', so write the authors of this book. And they are right. After all, a change process is not an improvement process (improve what we already do), it is a learning process (find and take different paths). In other words, we let go of our carefully constructed hold on the past. - Prof. Herman Van den Broeck

This book is an easy read and the many practical examples are recognizable and inspiring. (...) They help us to see things in perspective and to take a broader view. Thanks for sharing! - K. Van Belle

As a certified NLP trainer, coach and facilitator, Steff Vanhaverbeke guides people and teams to make them work together more effectively. Steff started his first business in 1993. He built up extensive experience in the marketing and communication sector and founded the training and consulting company ubeon in 2004.

He has been providing training in communication since 1997. His extensive experience as a trainer, coach and facilitator is reflected in a great flexibility towards working methods.

As a certified NLP trainer, Steff combines Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) with systems theory. By applying these principles and techniques, a new space is created where ideas, trust, cooperation and a shared vision emerge spontaneously. This 'generative field' has a stimulating and motivating effect on each individual participant and the whole. Problems become options. Options become opportunities for personal and professional development and growth.

Since 2010 Steff focuses on coaching people and teams in medium and large organizations so that they are also able to work together in a sustainable way.
