About BYAZ

BYAZ bvba is derived from the word “bias”. This word indicates the filters and preconceptions people have in experiencing reality. It makes that every individual has a different perception of reality. When this perception matches with reality as it is, then the quality of perception is high. When perceptions are different from reality as it is, then the quality of perception is low.

BYAZ is dealing with solutions to align and increase the quality of perceptions in organisations in order to take better decisions, leading to better performance and more safety.

He occupied flying duties on F-16 as a fighter pilot and also on Alpha-Jet and SF260M as a flying training instructor. Additionally he served as a training squadron Commanding Officer (CO). As a staff officer, he took up duties in Training Command and the Aviation Safety Directory. He finished his military career at NATO’s Allied Command Operations at SHAPE (BE) – where he was involved in nuclear surety and command & control. He always took pleasure in improving situations and performance by dedicated action, while sharing and passing on his knowledge and expertise. In 2008 he started a second career as an organisational and business coach, helping organisations, companies and teams to improve and excel. As an author, together with Prof. Genserik Reniers (TU Delft, KUL & UA), he bundled his experience and ideas on leadership and management in a book titled “Total Respect Management“. Since September 2014, Peter is employed at TU Delft as a PhD researcher working on a project of Netbeheer Nederland to find a proactive way to achieve safety in the gas distribution network industry in the Netherlands. His design to achieve this aim has been written down in the book “Safety & Performance”, published in 2017.
