    • Fläktgroup
    • 1000-5000 employees
    • Industry and mechanical engineering
  • Interim CIO in a post merger integration phase, handover to the internal new appointed CIO
  • The post-merger process of the IT was not successfully undertaken by the current CiO, the position of the Interim CIO (75 Employees, 14 Mio. Budget) was aimed at closing the Delta quickly and organising the take over by a new CIO.

    The position as the Interim CIO required the organization and structuration of new teams, development of trust and releasing the energy to finish the running projects on a positive note after failing to do so before.

    There was no clear overview concerning the running costs and projects, creating a need for the following:

    • Introduction of a budget process, a process for the management project portfolio
    • Restructuring of the running contracts, based on new SLAs and penalties
    • With the global IT outsourcer (managed to decrease annual budget from 1.5 to 1.1 Mill.) and consolidation
    • Workshops with the Team Leaders to establish an open and self-dependent work climate. The until then used “command driven” style needed to be replaced by a more proactive, transparent and self-critical approach. This was also the basis for
    • The implementation of a Light PM framework which was based on Prince 2 with templates and a common understanding as well as a governance with the business
    • Initiation of further migrations of the local DSCs into the cloud of the global IT outsourcer with implementation of the COBIT5 framework
    • Accompanying of current projects to ensure the implementation of the PM framework in daily life
    • Initiation of an initiative towards ensuring Disaster Recovery in the still existing decentral sites

    After three unsuccessful scheduled cutovers for the move of the development environment to the new data center, it was challenging to convince the client and the other parties/suppliers involved, to trust in the new plan and the same team:

    • Design of a new project plan and reorganisation of the project to integrate the client’s and Indian development team during analysis and design of the new environment in the target DCS to assure the client’s commitment and final approval
    • Redesign and agreement of the SLA specifications, this was overseen when compiling the contract between the provider and client

    • Hiring and replacing some members in the team to hinder some bottlenecks and barriers rooted from the former project setup

    • Supporting the internal and external teams to get to a better understanding of each other, coaching the Accenture team to bridge the gap of the ongoing communication and getting a better technical understanding of the real dependencies rooted to the architecture to avoid blockers (like for software delivery, firewall rulesets, interfacing applications) as in the past
    • Integrating some of the delaying parties (former bottlenecks) to the stream ignite for the required ongoing alignment to fully support the migration of the IT environment from Vattenfall to the new Telekom DSC with servers and clients for opencast mining applications like GIS, CAD and SAP PLM.
