I am a computer scientist (MSc.), a project manager (PMP), a process improvement expert, and a book author. I have been working in software and computer technology since 1992. In 1998, I began working in the software industry as an independent consultant and project manager.
As a management consultant with in-depth, comprehensive technical knowledge and practice-proven expertise of industry-leading quality standards, such as Automotive SPICE or CMMI, I focus on designing lean, agile development processes. I support my clients in organizational, strategic, and operational project management initiatives and develop and promote innovative technologies.
Converting complex, heavy-weight standards and methodologies in agile and effective development processes is part of my core competency. I draw on decades of experience in various disciplines – from software development and system architecture in technical environments to project management and process optimization, which allows for efficient communication on all technical and organizational levels.
My offering includes project management and project coaching, process consultancy, on-site organizational counseling, seminars, lectures, and workshops.
Examples of my projects include:
