Services

Consulting

Or in a nutshell: advice and experience. Is your project a mess? Looking for a manager to get things done? Maybe the 'next big thing' on your website? Need a seasoned leader, project manager and product owner for your IT or online project and your business requirements, for the long-planned web relaunch with this hilarious — but not-so-realistic — deadline?
You, your team and your company can benefit from my experience in IT and online projects of every scale, preferable in an international atmosphere with agile project structures.
Get a manager who can flawlessly plan and oversee end to end projects, collaborate and influence internally/externally, motivate your team and deliver with strong attention to detail and focus on your business requirements.

Project Management

Projects are always communication projects. Open conversations with all participants make projects successful in time & budget.
Sounds simple, but it's not — because we are carbon-based life forms or, more precise: humans. We are designers, developers, information architects, marketing guys, lawyers, technologies, traditions, professions, standards, crafts, moods, experiences, stories, opinions, feelings, technical and financial requirements.
Get me in your project and I will bring the talent, methods, and management consulting acumen needed to help manage your global or multi-national projects.

Strategy

Does your team need a thought partner to bounce ideas off, get further input and refine existing processes to reach the best solution? Did you lost the general conspectus? Don't you get all your ideas, departments, stakeholders and requirements organised?
Ask for a structured approach, an open revision of your project situation or your next move on the digital field. If you want a real online strategy with substantial progress on your projects with agile methodologies and a pragmatic approach: I can work as your project manager, product owner, platform manager, online strategist or web strategy director — permanently or temporary, let's talk about it.
