My name is Simone Liegl, and I am the User Experience Designer here at Meisterplan. Born in a little town in Bavaria, I have brought in some traditional Bavarian rites to the Swabian culture for three years now.
Now, it’s time to explain why my passion has always been about helping people to solve their problems with project portfolio management. But you know what? It hasn‘t.
The reality: I started at Meisterplan as a working student designing user interfaces. As time went by, I got more interested in the problems people have with PPM. But what I love the most is the development of the vast user centricity in our team over the past years: Now, all of us really care about our users and help them make plans that work.
For me, user experience design is mainly a commitment. I put my whole attention on helping the people using Meisterplan by solving their problems. PPM is difficult, the underlying processes are complex. Therefore, my aim is to design a product that is easy to use and understandable so that the user can concentrate on doing his job instead of wasting his time trying to understand the software he has to use. I call myself a designer, but actually, most of my time, I listen and talk to different people to understand their problems and desires in PPM, so that I can solve them with an improved design.
Furthermore, the Meisterplan team soon realized that I love to talk and organize. That is why I am responsible for scheduling our after-hours meetups for beers in the evening. Of course, I use this and every other possibility to advertise the best sport in the world: Badminton!
I would love to have chat with you: No matter if it is user experience design, badminton or beer. But don’t you try to convince me that there is better beer than Bavarian beer. I’m looking forward to it!
