Theory from studies meets reality at ForestX. Theo Bohlin is ForestX’s first trainee.
Theo Bohlin is studying the program “Digital Business Development” at Linnaeus University.
He is spending the first semester of the third and final year of the program as an intern at ForestX’s office in Växjö.
– I’m grateful ForestX accepted me. It is fun to see how everything works in reality in forestry.
Digital business development
The program has informatics as its main field of study with a focus on digital business development and leads to a bachelor’s degree. Theo Bohlin tells us more about the studies:
– The focus of the program is simply how to use information. What is the benefit of the data? Which data is valuable? It is of course also about how to streamline operations with digital support and various technologies, says Theo.
– During the program, we analyze operations, visualize them and find different work processes. The program is very broad. We study in parallel with those who study systems science, but we also study business administration, leadership, marketing, and information systems, for example.
Agile working method in reality
In the internship, the more theoretical knowledge from the studies meets the reality of the business developers at ForestX’s office in Växjö.
– I get to sit in and listen to meetings with customers. You can read about a lot, but it’s a completely different thing to follow along and see how projects are managed in reality. For example, I get to see what agile project work looks like in different companies, says Theo.
– Later, I will try to work with the support for CFHarvest. It’s a bit nervous, but it’s also good to throw yourself into it and try it out.
