Key Achievements:

  • As a PMO Manager at T-Systems International GmbH, Nadja had end to end responsibility for the Project Management Office (PMO) for international private sector and public institutions in Berlin, Germany and Brussels, Belgium.

This was a critical and highly visible role.

She also developed and implemented improvements to program communication and reporting towards customer and C-Level management resulting in regaining trust and authority from internal and external stakeholders.
  • For the European Union, Nadja was engaged to turn around a large troubled program ($67M). This was successfully achieved by restructuring the entire PMO, establishing high-performance teams, and increasing governance visibility. PMO resources were spread over Germany, Slovakia and Hungary with additional streams in Belgium, Great Britain and France.

The contractual negotiations were at Board level between T-Systems International GmbH and the multi-national Customer, and were strategically significant in enabling the continuation of the project.
