Software selection

Especially in complex and unclear situations, it is crucial to have a holistic project manager who – instead of someone who just floats high above the ground like a helicopter pilot – has a deep understanding of both functional as well as IT matters. A project manager who is a man of action, actively pushes requirements and concepts and ensures the quality of the new processes. That is why I am acting in a dual capacity as both project manager and consultant, so that you get all the necessary expertise for your success from a single source.
If you have any questions, I’d love to answer them personally. Please contact us.

Roles

I am your…

Information refiner

Information refiner

You have the expertise – I bring the structure. I supply the meta skills that make your team use their knowledge that much more effectively. I give your staff the framework to fit their ideas and requirements into, so that the subsequent departments, your IT and your partners can use them in a goal-oriented and efficient way. I control the quality of your requirements and I makesure that they are unambiguous and coherent. I transform your business knowledge into working processes to make your operations run smoothly.

Right-hand man

Right-hand man

The most important benefit an interim manager can give you is a sound sleep. You are looking for someone whom you can trust implicitly. Someone of whom you know: if I do nothear from him, everything is running smoothly. Someone who acts independently and pushes the project forward. Someone who gives you crystal clear decision memos and notifies you in time about potential challenges and pitfalls. Someone who acts as your right-hand man and takes a weight off your shoulders. Being that someone is the standard Ihold myself to.

MacGyver

MacGyver

Is your challenge rather broad and still somewhat vague? Do you need a generalist who can handle any and all situations, someone who can speak both the language of the functional teams as well as of the IT, a partner who can communicate with the staff just as easily as with top management? Are you lacking someone who pushes the content work at a detailed level and simultaneously can report succinctly to top management? Are you in need of someone who rapidly and reliably can distill a clear goal and a structured course of action from a multitude of diffuse problems and ideas? If so, there is a big chance we will match well.

Translator

Translator

“Dear IT, there’s something I need of you.” – “Okay, give me requirements.” – “Great, what do you need to know?” – “Well, it’s up to you to know what your requirements are?!”

If this sounds familiar, it is very likely yourvarious teams have both the functional expertise and as the willingness to turn the project into a success, but they just speak different languages. You need a translator that understands both worlds and can build bridges. You need someone that presets clear structures. You need someone that can assess the feasibility of proposals and the validity of objections. Allow me to help you out.

Organizer

Organizer

At the apex of a project, to the project manager the situation sometimes feels like sitting in the middle of a circle. All stakeholders are sitting around him and throwing colored balls with all their ideas and issues at him at the speed of light as they do not know where else to turn. Those are the situations in which I thrive. Your experts bring the detailed knowledge about your goals and your business and let those balls fly. On my swivel chair in the center, I catch all your ideas, structure and assess them and then reliably address them to their proper recipient right on time. Keeping a level and head being the navigator that safely guides your ship through the storm is what I am passionate about.

Coach

Coach

The success of a measure is not determined solely during the project itself. To a significant degree, it depends on whether your employees have truly understood and accepted the new processes and systems. And even if they do, there is so much more untapped potential. In the best of cases, your employees have learned new ways of working and communicating during the project, as well as more efficient self-organization techniques. That is why transferring knowledge is an essential part of my work.

Core Competencies

What

Increasing efficiency.

Connecting silos.

My aim is for you to be able to work faster, smarter and more error-free – both during the project as well as in your daily operations afterwards. I will show you how to work more efficiently. I will help you to combine the knowledge and the processes of your various departments into a harmonic overall operation. I will train your staff to use their potential in a more targeted way. And by doing that, I will make sure you will profit from my work long after the end of my mission with you.

How

Creating transparency.

Setting up structures.

Optimizing processes.

You do not need extra functional expertise – your organization has enough of that already. What you are likely lacking is full transparency and a truly efficient structure that allows your employees to be productive the entire day instead of working themselves to the ground with reconciliations and troubleshooting. I bring you clarity through efficient project reporting and unequivocal communication. I create sustainability and predictability by introducing clear and comprehensive structures. And I increase your productivity through lean and faultless workflows.

By what

Clear communication.

Clear values.

Clear responsibilities.

Trust is based on reliability. Clarity begins with personal action – I can only implement for your what I exemplify myself. You can trust that I will give you an honest and open assessment of the project status and team culture at any time. You can always rely on me to lead the way and practice the clarity that I preach. You can rest assured that each team member will know their tasks at any time. That way, you’ll always know what the current statusis, and which opportunities, challenges and decisions are coming up.
