We at Meisterplan believe that a personal relationship goes beyond all e-mail traffic and online how-tos. Therefore, I want to introduce myself.
My name is Thomas Quandt (age changes by the year) and my business card reads Customer Success Manager. In my role, I am responsible for the product & process consulting and the customer relationship management at Meisterplan. This alone includes more than enough words to win the next round of buzzword bingo. So what is it really about?
It is not about telling you how the world works or giving you the answer to the ‘Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything’.
It is about helping you achieve your goal of implementing successful PPM to save time and nerves and start making plans that work!
During my years as a project manager and key account manager in the core banking software business, I have more than once wished for a reliable and lasting prioritization and planning process as a basis for my everyday work. During my web sessions and workshops with our customers, I learned that I am not the only one with this wish. This is why I fully back the concept of PPM in general and Meisterplan in particular with what I do and what I am.
In my free time, I spend most of the time with my dogs. For some strange reason, I am keeping faith in them to one day be able to walk by my side without strangling themselves with the leash, to Sit! and Wait! and otherwise just be nice and look good. And not shed their hair all over my business suits, for a change. Until that day comes, I will have to keep walking them through the cold German rain and yell and – oh well, please never change.
Another spare time favorite of mine is consuming every bit and piece of American Football to be found on German TV. Which is not nearly enough, in my mind. In fact, I struggled hard to make this quest become a Football forum – but very obviously I was overruled by my more professionally acting colleagues. Anyway. Go Pack Go!
As an active part of this quest I am very much looking forward to your contribution, your input and questions. I will happily provide you with my experience and share thoughts, ideas and best practice approaches with you!
‘nuff said. Let’s go join the quest.
