Moin!

My name is Astrid, living in Schleswig-Holstein and working as a Project, Process and Quality Manager. You can find out more about me below.
tl;dr: I make my environment a little bit better every day - and I want my colleagues to find it easy to make their own environment a little bit better every day.

With my educational background - I studied natural sciences in the information society - I have laid a foundation as a communicator between different disciplines from the very beginning. Through my work experience, I was able to develop as an empathetic mediator between different stakeholders.
I have already been able to prove my proactive and structured way of working in several projects since 2009. My greatest strength is organisation: Getting a quick grip on what neets to be done, interfacing between different stakeholders to achieve an aligned outcome, and documentating and reporting results: be it within the team, with clients and service providers, or even across disciplines, from creation to controlling. Of course, I am also used to having several projects on the table at the same time.
Because I always have holistic improvement in mind, I have had the opportunity to prove myself in organisational development in recent years. At my current employer, I was able to initiate and accompany both recognised quick wins and larger process improvements that accompanied the development as an agile organisation.

I like to find individual and efficient solutions to achieve goals, tailored to different target groups and strategically chosen objectives. Of course, I also fall back on well-known and proven methods and do not reinvent the wheel every time. I feel particularly comfortable in an agile context. Since sustainability is important to me, I pay particular attention to the communication and involvement of all stakeholders in change management, for individual milestones and features as well as for projects as a whole.
