The newly appointed CEO of Agrar Daten GmbH, which provides software products and services to the agricultural sector, wanted to ensure that key personnel were "speaking the same language" in the context of multiple project co-ordination. I provided training covering various aspects of project management throughout the project life cycle.

This project involved the definition of sales processes for this mid-sized software development and consulting company, as well as the creation of a time-keeping and invoicing infrastructure.
