Why I can help

I have years of experience in the international project management, product management and prozess optimization (e.g. supporting the CMMI certification in one of companies I worked).

Convinced? Don't wait and drop a message.

What you can get?

On-site consulting and advisory

From time to time everyone needs help on site.
It may be discovering untapped opportunities in your project organization, analysing errors in recent projects, or introducing agile project development as a new way to solve the problems you now face.
I can visit you for a predefined period of time and assist you with the above-mentioned investigations.
I help you with classic projects (waterfall) as well as with agile small and large, distributed projects

Remote consulting and advisory

Usually, after having a short on-site support, customers need remote advisory to stay on track while implementing recommendations generated during the on-site support.
I can provide you remote advisory on a monthly retainer basis so you may discuss your issues and challenges as they appear.
I will give you practical advice based on over 20 year practice in different industries and help you to determine what work should be done in your particular situation.

Problem investigation audits

Do you have problems with your projects, such as delivery delays, lack of functionality, low quality or budget overrun?
I may need an experienced expert who will independently analyse these projects and propose improvements, as well as point out the hidden bottlenecks that everyone knows, but no one is talking about them e.g. coteries and other informal relationships.
You can hardly find these kinds of obstacles using your own reviewers and auditors.

The Best Way to succeed in projects – satisfy your customer!

Let the work be done by professionals.

Regardless whether your project builds a mission-critical system or not, you need someone who knows how to lead a complex, distributed and – in most cases – international IT project.
