Keynote: Learn from the best – the way to Project Excellence

Successful companies have changed their strategies towards providing solutions rather than selling products.
Products have been invented by single individuals or research departments. Solutions are developed in project teams. The sustainable success of a company does not depend on splendid inventions and on separate marketing departments but on an integrated and innovative approach towards solutions for the customers. Project teams therefore got a major significance in creating success for the company. They became the driver and leader of these solutions. The crucial question is, how can we prepare the ground for the continuous development of creative and better solutions and avoid routines?

Jürgen Ekert, Head of Project Office at Endress+Hauser, will explain how his office adapted the approach of Project Excellence and contributed to the success of the internationally operating company.

This session presents Project Excellence as a solution-oriented mindset for project managers. Easy applicable and effective tools as well as a modified communication leads to more adaptability and better performance of the project team.

Jürgen Ekert shows how the consistent focus on the core elements - things that go well, positive developments and the consideration of positive exceptions (experience) from the past help. With Project Excellence Workshops Endress+Hauser succeeds the constant adaptation to market requirements, boosts continuous organizational learning and to increase the identification of the project members in the project team.
