Mode of operation

My work follows the guiding principle of systemic consulting: the development of managers and teams, taking into account the individual interrelationships within the company or working environment. I understand development as a solution- or result-oriented process, which is fed by the guided self-reflection of the person or group concerned.

Project history

01/2018 - Present
Agile Coach / Agile Consultant / Scrum Master
DB Fernverkehr AG (>10.000 employees)
Transport and Logistics
Stronger networking of the specialist departments in production
The aim is to achieve a much stronger networking of all internal resources involved in the production of long-distance transport. At the centre of this objective is the software that controls the production process. In this context, the assignment includes agile coaching from the project management to the individual project teams as well as the further agilisation of the project organisation structures.

04/2017 - 03/2018
Agile coaching of the managing directors of up to eight different companies of a corporate group
Transformation process towards more agility in leadership
The companies of the group, which are very differently oriented within the industry, should be brought together to form a complementary "overall concept". The aim was to support the individual company management teams in the implementation of a holistic strategy. A management team was to be formed from the individual management teams, which would think and act holistically in terms of the group of companies. Traditional perspectives and leadership patterns were agilised and for the first time a joint performance was achieved with a view to the group as a whole.

06/2017 - 10/2017
Executive Coaching
Coaching of a chairman of the board
It was a matter of personal position-fixing. The background was changes that could not be influenced by the coachee and which had a decisive influence on the future structure of the company. The aim was to find a target-oriented approach for both the company and the CEO.

02/2017 - 10/2017
Executive Coaching
Coaching of a manager on the second management level
The object of the coaching was to find a useful way of dealing with overload on the time level and the divergent management style of different superiors. In the course of the coaching, personal convictions also played a role, which had previously stood in the way of a successful handling of the situation.

09/2016 - 08/2017
Agile Coach / Agile Consultant
Gradual agilisation of an entire company
The IT company, founded in the "garage", has outgrown the start-up phase after more than 15 years and with its product strategy (SaaS) it is sustainably and successfully positioned in a market niche. However, the founding spirit in the form of innovative strength and willingness to change has waned with increasing success. For this reason, a gradual agilisation of the company with a special focus on Scrum was aimed for. The assignment included the complete project development and structuring as well as the close monitoring of the implementation.

08/2016 - 07/2017
Project management (with agile orientation | Scrum, Kanban etc.)
Employer attractiveness, organizational development
The contract included the complete project development and structuring as well as close monitoring of the implementation. In addition to the implementation of an internal project management team and the support of this team as Agile Coach, a situational Agile Coaching of individual team members took place.

03/2017 - 06/2017
Agile Coach
Optimization of the interaction between the different management levels and business units
The assignment included the support of the project team in the role of the Agile Coach. The focus of the project was on the topics of leadership and organizational development in the affected business areas and their synergetic interaction. The company is set up according to agile principles, which is why the project should also be seen in this context.
