I have been analysing processes and organisations for almost all of my working life. Initially as a consultant, and then later in companies in operational and line management functions.
My first few years of professional experience with PricewaterhouseCoopers have left an indelible mark. My focus was improving financial processes and establishing efficiency programmes in medium-sized enterprises. Time and again this involved restructuring and streamlining “ailing projects”. I gained experience in taking responsibility for the “operational business” by working as a finance executive for various international business units of the Airbus Group.
I believe it is very important to adopt a structured procedure and complete projects in a methodical manner. I like conceptual work and a pragmatic execution, working together with all stakeholders. In my experience, this has less to do with the implementation of best practice but is more about achieving a best fit. In other words, it is all about implementing whatever fits in best with your company, your processes and your workforce.
