As an experienced ICT generalist, I was always amazed by the often inefficient ways in which companies and their associated departments operate. Frustrated and interested in finding more efficient solutions, the focus shifted from implementing ICT solutions to mapping processes, managing the right people and finally the overall management of companies. After many years of experience, I concentrate fully on making a company efficient, profitable and functional.
The quote by "Simon Sinek" is 100% true. You may describe the wildest desire, describe a thousand analyses or reports, have 100 meetings, but above all... don't wait... Just start.
My 'modus operandi' is simple... you cannot offer a solution if you do not know the problem. You have to immerse yourself not only on paper but also hands-on in the department(s). Only then can you understand 100% what the problem is or the frustration of a department that is not running smoothly.
Be it financial, operational, ICT... the starting and end goal is always the same. To make a company profitable in an efficient and structural way.
