Laura Nicolas Lorente started to work with Dynamics NAV back in 2005, first in the support department, mostly solving functional issues and doubts. She soon jumped to full deployment: consulting, analysis, development, implementation, migration, training, and support. Right from the beginning she realized that it was very important for a Dynamics NAV consultant to have a deep knowledge of business workflows. Technical skills are just not enough. So she started to train herself accounting, taxation, supply chain, logistics, and so on. She discovered a whole new world and she found it very interesting. After having enough consultancy experience, she got to manage the first project on her own. And then she realized that tech and business knowledge is not enough: she also needed management skills. This is why after reading different management books and trying different approaches on the projects she worked on, she decided to deepen her knowledge by taking a Masters in Project Management. She is now transitioning to Agile Management and Agile Development for better project success. She continues her training in the three areas (tech, business workflows, and management) whenever she gets the chance. The net is a huge source of inspiration for her: groups, forums, blogs, books, and so on. She also contributes by sharing her knowledge and experience with the Spanish Dynamics NAV community. Laura is also co-author of the book Implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, which had really good comments coming from different Dynamics NAV experts. Cristina Nicolas Lorente has been working with Dynamics NAV since 2005. She started in the ERP world as a developer, but soon evolved to a complete Dynamics NAV professional, doing all the tasks involved in Dynamics NAV implementation: consultancy, analysis, development, implementation, training, and support to end users. When Cristina started developing solutions for Dynamics NAV she had no idea about accounting or about any kind of business workflows. They don't teach those kind of things for a technical university career. Soon she discovered that it is important to know the set of tools used, but even more important to understand the meaning of whatever you develop. Without knowing the accounting rules, practices, and legal requirements, it is impossible to develop useful accounting functionalities even if you are the best developer. Only when you fully understand a company's processes you will be able to do the appropriate developments. Having that in mind, she has taken courses in Accounting, Warehouse Management, and Operations Management. She is also willing to take courses on any other company related topics. She thinks that the best way to learn is to teach what you are learning to someone else. She has actually learned almost everything she knows about Dynamics NAV by responding to user questions on internet forums, by writing a blog about Dynamics NAV, and of course by writing the book you have in your hands. When you have to write about something, you have to experiment, try, investigate, and read. It is definitely the best way to learn. Cristina is also co-author of the book Implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, which had really good comments coming from different Dynamics NAV experts.
