You recently joined Excillum as Technical Project Manager.
How has it been so far?
It’s been great! Although the COVID situation I have close contact with many colleagues and everyone has been very supportive.
You are leading complex R&D projects, what is your “project management philosophy”?
As a technical project manager, I strive to be involved in technical aspects of the project, such as requirements analysis and design. This helps both with stakeholder relations, planning and in prioritizing work. I value commitment to plans highly and believe that a well-defined structure and process within the project is a key to success.
Before joining Excillum you were in IT industry, how come you wanted a move to hardware?
That’s what I’ve always been interested in and I spent the first decade of my career within microelectronics. After some years in the IT industry, it now feels like I found the way home again!
As many other people you are in the middle of family/work life, how do you balance that and what can we do to support?
It’s always a challenge, especially when you get immersed in an interesting and challenging project and have sharp delivery dates and deadlines. Luckily, I have great team members who take on a lot of responsibility to carry the project forward!
Thank you Karl, we are really impressed by how you have kick-started our latest big project!
