As an Interim Manager and Mediator I support (project) organisations in turning around complexity and conflicts into effective teamwork, integrated solutions and win-win results.

In Construction, Infrastructure and Energy, multidisciplinary projects can be complex. Due to interfaces –anticipated or not – between organisations, people and areas of expertise, etc. And due to unpredictability. And when reality does not adhere to models, contractual discussions appear.
This leads to conflicts, increasing complexity even more.

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

Steve Jobs

Transforming a project from ‘complex’ to ‘simple’, can only be aspired if the right people with the required knowledge and skills, join forces in a coordinated manner, based on shared convictions and shared interests.
And that’s where I come in.
