Magnus Drape

Director, Strategy & Enterprise Architecture 

What kind of persons would fit and thrive in the role of Enterprise Architect (EA) with us at PostNord?

As a person, you need energy to drive things forward and firmly guide the stakeholders to make the right decisions. For this, you need to create understanding and acceptance for strategic choices that are decided.

It is important that you can handle both the strategic part, but also the details when needed. Be able to balance the long and short-term perspective and needs. 

What is it like working in your team? What development will EA in your unit get?

Working in my team means a great deal of freedom and as an individual you must take a lot of responsibility. We support each other but have our own responsibilities.

As a leader I point out a direction, but I’m not involved in detail. We are all senior and competent, but sometimes we need support – we give this to each other on an ongoing basis.

During the years I have been at Postnord, EA has grown stronger and we are now a natural part of the strategic decisions made within Postnord. As the IT need is constantly growing within the Group, I see that EA will be needed, not least because architecture affects the company's agility, costs and business capabilities.
