I support companies in the successful implementation of Remote Program / Project Management Offices. 
  • introducing digital methods and tools for interactive work
  • creating and harmonizing processes on remote work
  • including digital training of the new tools and methods and virtual onboarding of new employees
  • and a digital, interactive, fully automated reporting in real time 
  • your projects more efficient, on time and on budget
  • your decisions more effective
  • and your employees happier,
because a well thought-out concept when setting up your project reporting enables you to see the project status at a glance and to react quickly in case of deviations. Through a uniform and harmonized set-up, projects become comparable and can thus be aligned more efficiently with your company strategy. Employees gain valuable time, as a fully automated project reporting reduces the time-consuming creation of one pagers, presentations and status reports. 

I am a project manager for digitalization projects in PMO (IPMA Level D) and a trainer for project management training.
