My consultancy focuses on three areas of each organization: organizational development, quality- and project management:
Organizational development as a strategic tool focuses on existing capacities or possible structural changes to shape the output even more successfully.
Quality management as a hedging instrument analyzes documents and adapts processes and procedures in order to continuously improve as well as satisfy stakeholders and beneficiaries (clients).
Project management is the executive arm of every organization whose results most are most likely to be noticed by the public, because it is what the organisation sets out to do according to its strategy and projects, past and present.
Minimal changes in one area inevitably affect the others, too. Therefore all three areas are equally important in contributing to success – inside the organisation having professional structures in place which achieve, by means of tailor-made projects, positive sustainable impacts outside the organisation.
Hence I focus continually always on these three areas: organizational development, quality – and project management, even though an assignment seems to refer to only one of them. Thus I am fully able to involve and get all participants on board in these processes as well as generating specific, tailor-made and customer oriented results and solutions; in German and/or English.
