This includes conducting thorough impact analyses, assessing change readiness, and identifying key stakeholders crucial to the success of the transformation initiatives. Stakeholder management is actively driven, emphasising involvement, engagement, and a continuous flow of information according to respective roles.

Lastly, there is a commitment to ensuring that the strategic targets of IT transformation are effectively communicated to all relevant stakeholders. This involves establishing clear and continuous channels of communication to keep stakeholders informed and engaged throughout the transformation journey.

• Convincing communication skills and an engaging and confident manner.
• Empathic and motivating leadership style, as well as the ability to inspire teams for global challenges, also in an international context.
• Proven strategic and conceptual competence.
• Strong problem-solving and analytical skills.
