Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to enquire whether you have a vacancy in your company for a bilingual Manager. I enclose a copy of my CV for your consideration.

As you will see from my resume, I am still collaborating as a free-lance professional with some companies and institutions (both public and private), to whom I am offering my services using both my management and technical skills, particularly in the fields of technology transfer and innovation management.

I am a Systems Engineer (with a specialization in IT) with a degree from the “Sapienza” University of Rome, a PhD in Business Engineering and Management and a Master in Business Engineering from “Tor Vergata” University of Rome. During my graduation studies, I dealt with the behaviors of autonomous robots in dynamic and unknown environments while my PhD research has focused on the role of management policies and practices with regards to software project management dynamics.

In addition to that, my professional life has made me deal with public and private organizations on various innovation topics. Among the latter, I’ve been working in the research field on highly innovative technolo-gies and system analysis methodologies, in Logistics and Transportation, leaning on my IT and BPR knowledge, on ICT innovation diffusion in the Italian Public Administration where I mainly used my IT, change management and organizational skills, on Aerospace & Defense by working mostly on the management of military projects at national and international level.

I believe my rich and varied background has given me sufficient experience that makes me a suitable candidate for any roles requiring skills in the following areas:

• Research and analysis
• Systems Dynamics and Business Process Reengineering
• Project proposals management
• Change Management and Strategic Decision Making
• International Environments

I believe that especially my skills in system dynamics make me a particularly suitable candidate in all those situations where an organization’s vision has to meet new strategic developments and thus where it is necessary to decide on various possible actions and policies by evaluating both qualitatively and quantita-tively (decision support) their impacts on medium-to-long term strategy.

Also, I have been described as proactive, reliable, a quick learner, and highly flexible. I also have proven communication skills, which enable me to interact and work well as part of a team.

I enclose my resume and, should you find it suitable to match the needs of your company, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would welcome hearing from you.

Best regards,
Stefano Armenia
