I worked in the IT industry in high management positions (Managing Director, CIO, Board Member) for more than 20 years, having been responsible for the Outsourcing & the IT Services business of a global IT Services company.
Knowing both clients' needs and wishes as well as providers' capabilities at a truly intimate level, I have been providing freelance consulting services on Outsourcing and Insourcing since more than a decade.
The "secret"of my outstanding successes in consulting is
1) bringing all of my broad and deep professsional experiences to my "hands-on" consulting practise,
2) using my skills in managing teamse across functional, national, cultural, etc. borders to focus on and achieve common business objectives, and
3) my ability to work with and convince boards members, supervisory councils, and senior managers to adopt the "right" strategy and take the "right" actions for the benefit of the entire company.
