Sonstige Angaben

Over the course of the last 10 years, I was globally responsible product manager for the knowledge Management platform (SaaS) for large corporations such as P&G, Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive, Unilever, Visa, Heineken, Verizon US, Shell, etc.

In this context, I was responsible for the product vision and strategy (for web and mobile), and for the market requirements. I wrote user stories and acceptance criteria and conducted user interviews/tests (my background is market research) and took care of the roadmap, the backlog and the release of the products (web and mobile applications).

I always worked with and coordinated all kind of different departments (UX, design, development, etc.) as well as communicated directly with internal and external stakeholders up to the C-level to find the right balance between political and strategic goals.
