Marina Ivanovic

Document Control Manager at Adriatic Marinas D.O.O. in Montenegro

Who are you? 


My name is Marina Ivanovic, I am 34 year old Montenegrin, living in the small coastal city, Kotor, nowadays worldwide known as one of the top 10 touristic places.


This year, I am very proud to have obtained my long awaited Master degree at Maritime University of Montenegro, Management course.


Who do you work for and where? 


For 11 years, I have been working for the “Adriatic Marinas” d.o.o., Investor of project “Porto Montenegro”, in the position of Document Control Manager. Located in the UNESCO protected Bay of Kotor, Porto Montenegro combines a spectacular lifestyle destination with a world-class, full-service marina and luxury residential village offering premium real estate for sale and rental in this part of the Mediterranean.


I am responsible for the administration of the internal company software, New Forma system, and for its implementation. My main role is the organization of documentation management processes, workflows, the establishment of design coding and documentation numberings and filing. 

All this combined with ensuring document control procedures are covered. My position also includes trainings for new users of the software, both on the tool and on company document control processes.


My career in the company started from a position as a Document controller, but by developing new skills and knowledge I became Document control Manager. 


What are your passions in life? 


I am a positive person, trying to see in others good things all the times. I love to meet new people and to have friends all around the world. Anytime I have a new idea, or anytime I set to achieve a new aim, I do my best to reach it. Despite of lot of difficulties, I do not stop. I could say that my life passion is for sure to be recognised and to develop the Document control role to the highest level in the region. What I enjoy the most is traveling and the Summer Sun.


What has the impact of Consepsys training been on your career? 


The first time I attended a Consepsys course was in 2015 with the Certified Lead Document Controller course. Traveling to Great Britain was like my dream finally came true. I remember coming home from the course with my notebook full of ideas which I could implement in my role. My Manager trusted me and agreed with all ideas and plans of how we could implement improvements on our project.


I think that the Lead Document Controller course has increased my self-confidence and brought me to a totally new way of thinking about project management. In my work, I am more established now, I am stricter and more strategic.


The knowledge that I gained has helped me to improve my work. The quality of the document control has increased to a high level and can go for sure side by side with any of the world-famous companies. The Course from 2015 brought me new friends too. Other Document controllers from all around the world with who I am in contact even now. We do share our experience and support each other. Raichel, Claire, Tereza = the team.


In 2016, I took the Advanced Document control course, which I also saw as a good way for developing my career. The training helped me ensure that DC is useful and recognized member of the team and that it adds value. After the course, my role in the company became more important.


I am proud to be Document Control Manager with such a recognised company and for such a long period.


Both courses were great. Topics and contents were very helpful and useful. After the courses I was motivated to share experience and ideas with all my colleagues. I recommend them as highly valued courses.


My expectations are positively satisfied and for sure we will meet again!
