Expertise / The Author

Experience in the technical and functional domain, understanding what is required and what can be delivered, the mix of two domains has become an important aspect at work. Only from understanding options it is possible to tell about an opportunity and the change to create from it. Technology is to be complemented by humanity to do the job.

The design and implementation of enterprise scale software solutions, the establishment and continuous improvement of agile methods, the work with teams of various experience levels and motivations as well as many locations, and the challenge to design products to fit business and client expectations have formed a rich set of experiences Harald can benefit from today. While he learned that there is not that single answer on every question, today he understands that the priority lies within understanding the questions, why one should be looking for better processes, higher objectives, and satisfaction from collaborative work streams.

Today Harald is working as Product Owner for data driven marketing solutions. Harald works with technology, where he started from as software developer, and the business, where he found the purpose and value of what he has been doing. The planning of resources, a close working relation with teams to improve satisfaction and output, fostering collaboration between departments, considerations regarding infrastructure, and engagement in a common platform vision comprises the concerted handling of the leap between business as seen by management and possibilities as seen by analytics, development, and delivery teams. Harald has learned to think in systems and considers built-in-quality.

Over time Harald has developed a need to understand how things come together and how to bring change by acting instead of telling. This is what he wants to share with you and others.
