Based on my long-term and profound project management experience in product and software development I am able to identify frictions, help overcome the ‘us vs them’ syndrome and build high performing teams. Based on my deep understanding of the inner workings of large IT systems, I am highly capable to professionally implement new products and solutions into existing product portfolios and environments. As a strong and effective communicator and trained negotiator, I both enable and co-ordinate the information flow among all involved parties and stakeholders. Managing people is essential for success. My passion is bringing the right people together by recognizing and aligning knowledge and competencies, which I have successfully achieved in my projects.
