Johannes Burger

Managing Partner

»Besides possessing the relevant methodological tools, a sound understanding of the subject matter is key for successful project management. My maxim is to understand the subject matter of the problem and find an appropriate, feasible solution. Traditional consultancies often only scratch at the surface. The devil is usually in the detail and new concepts can only be implemented successfully with an understanding of the operational issues.«
