Structural changes shape our time. This changes markets, business models, the way we operate and, in particular, the company itself.
AS A CONSULTANT AND MANAGER ON DEMAND I DEVELOP YOUR NEW MARKETS AND BUSINESS FIELDS WITH THE RIGHT PRODUCTS AND THE RIGHT BUSINESS MODELS.
With 1/3, change projects are the most common reason for using interim managers.
Leadership Study Helmut Schmidt University/Management Angels, Interim Leadership Success 2015
DRIVEN BY CUSTOMER VALUE
Strong in concept and implementation
Whether resilient strategy and implementation, I always think in terms of the overall picture and consistently from customer and market perspective.
Goal and result focused
Without personal agenda only the task counts.
I assess situations from the outside and initiate measures and projects impartially.
My skills, trained through a multitude of challenges and projects, are temporarily available as needed, with results right from the start.
Expert knowledge paired with management competence and proven in a variety of clients and mandates at home and abroad. Strong in management and communication in interdisciplinary and international cooperation.
Decision-makers predominantly assess the assignments of interim managers as good and very good – despite the often difficult initial situation.

Business models, products and services today are part of a value network and systems within systems
Interim managers can implement change projects more easily than executives with many years of permanent employment.

I worked with Friederike Abresch on the launch of our new digital hybrid offering for the design and manufacture of 3D-printed dental prosthetics. Ms. Abresch immediately grasped the initial situation and problems and, in a very short time, initiated a new, interdisciplinary process model for global marketing and long-term market development. Together with the specialist departments involved, she developed the content, organisation and processes. This has enabled her to bundle resources and competencies efficiently and customer-oriented across all departments, and not only for the time-critical, international launch. Ms. Abresch very quickly built up acceptance among the relevant management levels and teams for cross-departmental cooperation. I am more than satisfied with Ms Abresch’s approach and work results and enjoy working with her again at any time.
