How to get the most out of me?
I'm a senior product owner and project lead with lots of experience in leading complex software projects and products. I’m always focussing on moving products and projects to the next level.
And at my best when I’m able to think strategically with the company or department and I'm able to work hands-on with my team.
Describing me in three words would be goals, structure and creativity.
I’m a creative thinker and use that creativity to inspire, push and motivate my team and to solve problems together.
So motivating my team and getting the most out of the qualities of my team members has top priority. Together with clarity about the product vision for my team and stake holders, to make sure everybody is aligned.
Delivering an understandable, organized backlog is second nature to me.
My communication style is direct, honest and I'm always open to input.
Colleagues love to work with me because I’m goal oriented, a team leader and love to make the work environment fun.
