Mein Ziel ist es…

Zu einem guten Projektmanager gehört weit mehr als nur Aufgaben zu verteilen und deren Arbeitsstände zu kontrollieren. Um ein Projekt erfolgreich durchzuführen, sind neben umfangreichen Projektmanagementkenntnissen, auch sehr gute Prozesskenntnisse und die Fähigkeit mit Menschen richtig umzugehen erforderlich. Besonders in kritischen Situationen entscheidet die Begabung Mitarbeiter zu motivieren und zu mobilisieren über den Erfolg eines Projektes.

Aufgrund meiner langjährigen Erfahrung als Projektmanager und Führungskraft verfüge ich über die oben genannten Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten und würde mich freuen, für Ihr Unternehmen tätig zu werden.


… meine Kunden noch erfolgreicher zu machen.
