I'm experienced project manager with multi-cultural experience longest in Europe and Asia Pacific. From experience of multi-national co-operation around the globe I have worked with people from different backgrounds and countries.
My key competences are successful decision making, structures and acceptance procedures, communication, training and change management. I do business process re-engineering, enhance existing processes and workflows to make systems or projects run better. My success comes from creating great experiences and team culture.
I'm now and then in charge of large systems, product architecture and management. It includes system road maps and strategic programs or projects. Like me you must be able to organize project portfolio to get best out of the budget or time you have been given.
I'm passionate about learning and finding new ways to do things. That's why I'm keen to keep up to date and run large or mid-size projects and programs.
