WHAT I DO

I work as a Project Manager in IT. I lead projects, which are strategically important to a successful implementation in the entire organisation. In DC, we have a very mature and highly developed project model to secure fast and thorough project execution. My greatest job is to ensure an effective project implementation, and that the project is correctly balanced in relation to scope, time and budget. Furthermore, my team and I always explore how we can implement projects faster and more effectively without compromise on the project’s goals and success criteria.

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

The greatest part of my job is Stakeholder Management within the projects I am working on. I have daily contact with stakeholders in- and outside the organisation to secure mutual alignment on plans, timelines and next deliverables. I keep track on the project costs, risk mitigation plans and update the steering committees on important decision points. And then I off course make sure we celebrate our successes.
