This is a really hard question to answer. Easier to answer are those questions asking for what I did and where I want to get.
What I did? As student I worked in various internships or as consultant mostly in industrial companies. In addition I were chairman in a junior enterprize called Consult One. Consult One was and is a great sandbox to learn the most important management tools. But it is not just a sandbox – it is organized like a big consultancy. Consult One has a carefully worded strategy which consists of a vision, a mission and core values. The company goals are structured (S.M.A.R.T) and all company measures depends on at least one of those goals. Processes are visualized and are integrated into a knowledge management system. All projects fullfill a project cycle and are controlled by a committee to ensure quality and collect experinces in regular after action reports. This list is far from over and so you can see – junior enterprizes are a great place to learn and by the way a place to earn some money and help other companies to get better organized.
Where I want to get? You know it, I know it – everybody needs goals to orientate in her or his life. But to be honest – I do have my goals, but I learned in the past that it is not always good to tell everbody where you want to get. Sorry, but perhaps I will publish this later.
What else is to say? I am a really honest guy. I do believe in two sentences which are important to me:
- The more you give, the more you get.
- We always meet twice in lifetime.
I think both quotes, those things I wrote in this article and of course all articles you can read in this blog are telling you a little bit of who I am.
