My Vision & Mission

I believe goal achieving doesn’t need to feel like a war to fight but like an adventurous journey where people get excited to go to unknown territories and on the way they discover new things about the surroundings and themselves. My mission is to guide individuals, teams and organisations on the journey to their goals.

  • Since 2008 in e-Business, e-Commerce, Digital Product Management
  • Since 2011 Agile Transformation / Organisational Development
  • Since 2016 OKR Coaching

My experience comes from working in e-business and e-commerce companies for over 13 years. Thanks to different roles I took over, such as Product M., Project M., Portfolio M., Agile Transformation Manager, Organisational Development M., I’ve learned different aspects of the business and today have a broad understanding of challenges the teams, middle-managers, executive managers face everyday.

For over 10 years I’m an Agile Enthusiast. Since 2016 I practice „Objectives and Key Results (OKR)“ and coach teams and organisations. I’m passionate about OKRs because it covers the most important aspects of Business Agility such as alignment around a shared vision and goals, development and execution the right strategy, focusing on things that matter and collaborate around measurable outcomes and validated learning.

Other than that I’m enthusiastic about Agile Product Development, Scrum, Kanban, Agile practices, Workshop Facilitation, Liberating Structures, Management 3.0., Working Out Loud, Flight Levels, Systemic Coaching, Team Development, Remote Working.

My Comb-Shaped Skills

When someone asks me what helps me especially when coaching, my answer is „Comb Shaped Skills“. Today I profit from this wide variety of cross-discipline knowledge when applying my in-depth knowledge depending on the context. As OKR Coach I don’t only help teams to write good goals, but also give them impulses and examples depending on their context, with a systemic and solution oriented approach.
