Experience

I have experience in various roles in several industries, both on the supplier and customer side. As Program and Project Manager I have been in responsible for diverse projects, requirement assessments, tender analysis', as well as deliveries throughout the product life cycle. I have also worked as service manager for continuous services and I've been also a people manager/supervisor.

Working in several different organizations has brought me a strong experience with different business needs. International multi-vendor projects are familiar to me, and I have managed both Offshore and Nearshore teams.

With my active approach, I want to make sure that the agreed issues get done. My absolute strengths are problem solving skills and people management. I have in-depth knowledge of different methods, from traditional project management models, Scrum and SAFe as well as various hybrid models.

I also have a background of technical application expert, which have provided practical assistance, especially in software development projects, which I have led a number. These projects have strongly involved raising the degree of automation of the organization as well as robotics. Recent large application development projects, in which I have been involved in, have been in the financial sector.
