One central objective and motivation for me is to implement and deploy the PMI project philosophy and a PMI-based project management methodology in our organization adapted and adjusted to the organizational needs. Knowledge and Expertise My primary focus for the last 13 years has been in Project-, Program Management, and PMO. The skills developed as a Project Manager and Project Management Office leader in the IT service providing business leads to a passion for PMI’s project management philosophy. I earned my PMP in August 2015 and I am an enthusiasm PMP and PMI promoter.
