I made it happen

Innovate by doing

I made it happen is one of our initiatives that celebrates Deloitte professionals who have made an impact by driving innovation in our firm. Discover the projects that inspire our people and clients, and offer opportunities to build new skills.

I’m passionate about innovation, start-ups, and new ideas. Starting from zero and ending up with a tangible outcome is very exciting.

Barbara Coussée, Strategy Consultant

Barbara Coussée, a Strategy Consultant, worked together with her client, a Belgian city, to determine the need for a tech incubator and design a roadmap to set it up. She supported the municipal team with in-depth analysis of the existing incubation landscape. She then defined a solid value proposition, created a self-sustaining financial plan, set up a governance model, and outlined an implementation plan.

Olivier Dujardin, a SAP Service Delivery Manager, helped launch the data visualisation tool Qlik Sense across our firm. "I worked in different departments at Deloitte, giving me insights into various aspects of the business," says Olivier. "On this project many different elements had to be taken into account, so I gained an even broader view of how we can help our clients with the right tools." It gives colleagues the ability to transform data into meaningful business decisions with simple, interactive visualisations. This in turn allows us to analyse and report facts and figures more easily, and deliver more meaningful results and advice to clients.

Deloitte’s young innovators spark interest on social media
Since its launch in November 2017, the “I made it happen” campaign has been extremely popular. More than 40,000 people have seen the stories of our young innovators across our website, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
