In a nutshell:
I help individuals, teams and companies to decide on how to approach internal or external digitalisation.
Usually my role is deeply embedded in the client organisation and I work as part of a client team on-site or wherever the job takes me. The following illustrations shows where I can add my value along the way:

Some expectations management…
Firstly, I am not a User Experience or Digital Service Designer but I enjoy working with them. UX & Service Design have been part of most of my corporate jobs or consulting mandates – even a key success factor in most of them.

Depending on the complexity of the subject workshops … Continue reading Engaging Workshops
One thing I have definitely learned along my way is to ask the right questions. Knowing the questions and how to ask them is key to guiding individuals and teams towards a solution that fits with them, not some general framework or standard. I believe that most of my clients will confirm that I am … Continue reading Team Coaching
