Management Consultant - Strategy, Operations, Project & Program

Welcome to my profile. I am an integrator, a dynamic, astute & adept project and operations specialist with 26 years of industry experience. Tactfully, I might suggest and demonstrate a more cost effective solution, not by cutting corners, but rather by potentially working smarter. The client will always have the final say. I will make it happen. I have startup experience in digital marketing, eCommerce, lead generation, product development and more. Building companies from the ground up, collaboratively setting strategy, quarterly, one year and three year plans, implementing core values, core processes, workflows and SOPs, hiring of relevant staff, and implementing management frameworks and operating system, EOS, as well as tech stacks, setting the solutions up in terms of integration, structure, automations and dashboards. All of this while ensuring that what is implemented is naturally inclined to scale, as well as being future proof. My skill set is entirely transferable. I am detail orientated, structured, & bring intuition that looks to drive efficiency. A lateral thinker, I'd sooner look to solutions than raise problems. Equanimity being my default approach, I aim to effect change by continual improvement. I’ve set up marketing departments, company operations & complex PMOs. Built project teams and trained the staff in terms of the processes, SOPs & systems as implemented. I have implemented EVM into project & design offices & watched productivity improve drastically. My approach is not one to consume all hours available, but to work smartly, and have been asked to slow down on numerous occasions by clients. I am delivery orientated, driven by efficiency and productivity. My eCommerce experience sees me build project & marketing teams, setting overall marketing strategy (always on). By no means a coder, I do understand the process. To give you an example of such, I have planned & project managed the launch of 6 websites in 3 different languages over 2 weeks, inclusive of SEO, content, creatives & layout. Using several platforms. Engaged with influencers, created YouTube videos —the analytics demonstrating a 30% increase in sales; people began searching for the brand by name. As the Director of Operations I have built project management teams for e-commerce companies. The project managers, technical managers, as well as the DevOps teams fell under my management remit. I have similar experience working with law firms, software development agencies and one of the largest financial institutions in the UAE, however, watertight NDAs prohibit me from elaborating on these engagements. Having studied law, I do appreciate the repercussions that this may have on my consultancy. I am a subject matter expert with regards to contract and change management, with a speciality in planning. My planning work has been used as examples of best practice. I am well versed in numerous project management and planning software, but it is not just about the tools. It's the experienced based logic that you apply in using them. I pride myself on my attention to detail and organization. The planning would include high-level strategic planning for scaling and/or growth, as well as delving into the granularity of individual projects. I aim to effect change for the positive, with efficient & intelligent solutions driven by first principles and continual improvement. I am proud to say that I have not had a project fail. I take a hybrid of Lean EOS and UPN approaches. Less is more. Thinking outside of the box, I collaboratively plan each company's strategy, implement management operating systems, map core processes, & develop relevant SOPs, ensuring quality, consistency & efficiency from the offset. I have a reputation based on professionalism and strategic delivery. I am aligned with APM, Six Sigma & PMI. I utilize Rocks, KPIs, Milestones, EVM & fixed OKRs to measure processes, progress and efficiency of projects, resources and daily operations. It is my efficiency and productivity, which often has client's asking me to slow down, which is the driving factor behind continued improvement. Kaizen proponent. I have not stopped studying throughout my career, be it a postgraduate diploma in project management, risk management. BPM & BPI process certifications. My process work hangs on the walls of Anglo-American. I am driving towards a long overdue PMP, whilst reading for an MBA. I do like to keep busy. Whilst I have accomplished a number of notable achievements in my career thus far, I believe that I am only gaining momentum and that there is a lot more to come. Thank you for your time.

"I had the pleasure of working with the Sven on some exceptionally difficult case studies and can confidently say that they are an exceptional candidate. They possess a unique combination of intelligence, drive, and humility that makes them an asset to any organization. They have a deep understanding of the field and are able to effectively analyze and optimize processes to improve efficiency and reduce costs. They also have strong leadership expertise and are able to effectively manage and motivate teams. Overall, I would highly recommend Sven and believe he would be an excellent addition to literally any company. Unfortunately the situation changed within our company and would be unable to proceed with him, but that is entirely our responsibility."

"When I look for partners in any endeavor, I search for that rare type of person that is at the epicenter of humble, hungry, and smart. Sven perfectly encapsulates all three. His humility is driven by a genuine passion for helping other people achieve whichever version of success they seek. His hunger and intelligence are both driven by a genuine love of what he does, and is personally intensely growth-oriented so as to better equip himself to pursue his passion of acutely helping others. A maestro with words, and a veteran of collecting, organizing and composing difficult concepts into digestable words and action, he has been invaluable to me. I recommend Sven to anyone who wants a partner to help achieve mutual success. I can't wait to connect in the future!"

"With his default approach of equanimity, I appreciate having Sven on speed dial as and when required. As we approach a very busy Q4, we are able to have detailed strategic planning sessions with Sven with regards to campaigns to run for our growing base of clients. With Q4 obviously being one of the busiest times of the year, having these plans in place allows for the company to be able manage our resources effectively, with the processes that Sven has built, we are able to know who is doing what and when, complimented by the automations Sven implemented into our systems. It’s something of a comfort knowing that we pretty much have all bases covered. Having carried out optioneering exercises, we have been able to mitigate risk to the extent that there are contingencies waiting in the wings, should we encounter an unexpected issue. With this knowledge in hand we are able to allocate resources to business as usual exercises, an all important being further business development, lead generation, outreach. Sven has put in place a strategy for such that is proving effective from the offset, with a number of leads being approached, and relationships being formed. We continue with driving towards our one and three year goals, built in collaboration with Sven, and not have the workload of Q4 distract from our long term goals, but rather being complimentary in achieving them. Nothing has to come to a stand still. Once again, Sven proving his experience, a wide ranging in depth skill set driven by efficiency, and productivity rates being second to none. Thank you once again for your invaluable input, Sven."

"It was when Sven turned to me recently and told me that for now his work is done and that he’s an overhead that does not need to be carried, for the time being, it initially caught me by surprise, but it made me reflect on the last three months. We brought Sven onboard to lay the foundations, put in place structure, create core processes and ensure the team were all rowing in the same direction. Ensuring that we built a company based on best practice, whilst gearing up for Quarter 4. It was a multitasking exercise second to none. Sven has had to make some tough decisions in ensuring the right team members were in place. He’s provided training in systems that form the beating heart of our company’ operations. Ensuring each team member was competent and capable by testing them until they reached 100%. This was achieved in its first round. Sven gelled extremely well with the team as we built it, and ensured that no one was left behind, providing clarity where there may have been questions, and always there to provide support. With the structure and core processes in place, a detailed implementation plan for EOS developed in which it reduces the overall implementation of all deliverables, in a completely feasible manner, to eight and a half months, as opposed to two years, carried out under his own initiative. And cutting out the need for exorbitant consulting fees. It is literally an implementation of EOS by numbers, map included. Taking vague information from the formal EOS Basecamp and drilling down to each and every deliverable, phasing them by priority and logic. I cannot question Sven’s intellect, attention to detail, SME planning skills or productivity rate. The standing joke, with me being a hands-on type of CEO, was to have Sven ‘instruct’ me to get out of the trenches, let him get on with his work, and me get on with being the face of the company, carrying out marketing and outreach. This in itself has had favourable results already. Without a true appreciation until now between growth and scaling, Sven has implemented processes and systems that are future proof, ensuring efficiency, increasing productivity without incurring exorbitant costs to scale. The approach has been one of streamlining systems, cutting out unnecessary SaaS solutions completely, iteratively tweaking processes and SOPs to ensure we are getting from A to B, without having to go via C. I really could not have asked for more. This is certainly not goodbye. He’s certainly not quitting by any means, but rather doing what he sees is best for the company for the time being. I will call on Sven again in the near future. There is confidence gained knowing he is in your corner. I highly recommend this gentleman. Thank you, Sven"
