  • Some experience leading projects or teams

I love working in projects. They resemble the future, innovation, and change. And they deliver massive value for companies. Continuous personal growth, working in a team and having fun at work are important to me.

But traditional project management approaches don’t work. Milestones are missed. Risks are ignored. Processes are not defined. Projects get into precarious situations, team members are doing “business as usual”, and the fun is disappearing.

But things do not need to be like this: Motivated team members and excellent collaboration lead to successful projects!

In order to motivate your team members and improve collaboration, you’ll need to change the status quo. Quite often, this leads to a lack of understanding and refusal. So it’s even more important that you have excellent communication skills, that you are capable of convincing people and drive change through your project and organization.

Do you want to begin your journey towards successful projects?

  • Do you want to motivate your team members?
  • Do you want to work together in a team?
  • Do you want to convince your team and your organization?

 Do you want to…

  • …think for yourself?
  • …take action for yourself?
  • …have fun?
  • …benefit from my experience?

 Then let’s go together. With food for thought, stories, methods and exercises. I’m looking forward to it!

English version below ----

Ich arbeite seit mehr als 15 Jahren in großen und komplexen IT Transformationsprojekten, überwiegend in der Touristik, Luftfahrt und im Schienenpersonenverkehr.

Als Projektleiter habe ich die klassischen Projektmanagementmethoden gelernt und angewendet. In den letzten Jahren liegt mein Fokus einerseits auf dem Aufbau und der Entwicklung von performanten Projektteams und andererseits auf der tatsächlichen Realisierung des Projektnutzens. Ich bin zertifizierter Scrum Master und Product Owner.

Als Führungskraft gebe ich mein Wissen und meine Erfahrung an die nächste Generation von Projektleitern weiter. Ich unterstütze meine Mitarbeiter dabei, in kritischen Phasen mögliche Szenarien zu durchdenken und sich zu entscheiden. Als Sparringspartner reflektiere ich mit meinen Mitarbeitern Projektsituation, um daraus zu lernen und bewusste Erfahrungen zu sammeln.

Als Trainer nutze ich insbesondere die Formate der Onlinekurse, Präsenzseminare und Workshops. Ich habe die Erfahrung gemacht, dass zwei Dinge für den Lernerfolg entscheidend sind: Der Austausch über das Gelernte mit anderen Teilnehmern (online oder physisch) und die Umsetzung innerhalb von 24h in der Praxis.

In meiner Freizeit lese ich alles, was mir in die Finger kommt – Bücher, Zeitschriften, Onlineartikel. Ich spiele gerne Tennis mit meiner Tochter oder erschaffe neue Legowelten mit meinem Sohn. Seit ich im Jahr 2000 für die heute unglaubliche Summe von 1600 DM eine Digitale Ixus gekauft habe, beschäftige ich mich mit der digitalen Fotografie sowie Videografie.


I have been working for over 15 years in large scale, complex IT transformation projects; mostly in the travel, airline or rail industries.

As a project manager I have learned and applied the classic project management tools and techniques. During the last years I have focused on building and developing high performing project teams as well as actually realizing the envisaged business benefits. I am a certified Scrum Master and Product Owner.

As an executive I pass my knowledge and experience on to the next generation of project managers. I support my staff in thinking through possible scenarios in difficult situations and to make a decision. Together, we reflect on critical situations in order to learn and gain experience.

As a trainer I use the formats of online courses, physical trainings and workshops. From my experience two things are the key to success: sharing and discussing what you have learned with fellow students (either physical or online) and putting it into practice within 24 hours.

In my free time I like to read everything that grabs my attention – newspapers, magazines, books, blogs. I play tennis with my daughter or create Lego worlds with my son. Since I bought my first Digital IXUS back in 2000 for the enormous amount of 1.600 DM I’m an avid digital photographer and videographer.
