today I have to welcome me back to this Blog. I had little to no time since I am back in Germany to blog something here. Just to let you know what happened. I finished the ACP Project Management course as the best student but I dedicate this to my wonderful Project Management Team.
From January on, I helped out the SternenGalerie, a fireworks company which was founded by a friend of mine. Since he is developping his new StartUp Aletheio in the US I had the chance too jump on the business and work as COO for them. It’s a lot of fun but of course a lot of new things to learn, which needs a great effort and time.
During this time I also succeeded in finishing my Masters’ degree in International Management. My final thesis is about Corporate Entrepreneurship and how large companies can learn from Start Ups to develop their internal strength and to motivate their internal resources for doing innovation within the company. It provides companies with a catalogue of methods how to increase the innovational power within their own structure. This work will be published in a book about innovational processes and I am very proud of this.
So I hope within the next weeks I will succeed on giving you some interesting blog posts about Project Management, Intercultural Communication and Entrepreneurship.
See you soon!

Have a look at International Institute for Learning Continue reading
one week ago we finished the Cost Management class and I developed a basic calculator for the Hybrid vs. non-Hybrid vs. Tesla S car comparison concerning ongoing and initial costs. Well with the estimation we had to implement the net present value of the Tesla was almost the same as the Hybrid and I of course recommended buying the Tesla S model…if you are interested in the simple calculator version let me know and I will send you the Excel data.
