Almost 25 years in the IT industry including over 10 years as formal manager and leader has given me substantial and well documented experience of IT intensive leadership, the manager position and advanced systems development and engineering.
With my background as a leader, IT Manager and CTO, I have acquired deep knowledge about IT management and operations, IT architecture, business processes, the development process and relate to the customer, management, requirements and team members.
My leadership style is personal, active and based on clearly defined goals, measurability, participation, commitment, energy, competence and pride. To exercise formal leadership responsibilities while participating in the daily development process together with skilled and motivated team members is optimal for me.
I am comfortable in making difficult decisions and act calmly and methodically during challenges. In addition to extensive industry experience and technical skills, one of my greatest talents is the ability to transform business- and customer requirements into distinct, achievable and measurable goals.
I define leadership as reaching business goals and expectations by managing and distributing work based on available resources, time and means while at the same time sharing my knowledge and experience. The challenges of modern leadership drive me to evolve both professionally and as an individual. I find it stimulating to face situations where the solution is not always obvious.
I receive energy from creating and managing well-functioning IT teams and with my extensive experience from the industry I get my motivation from combining two worlds: IT leadership.
I write irregularly about technology, programming, the demoscene and other tech-related things.
