Tell us something about yourself …
After my vocational training as a management assistant in IT systems, I studied industrial engineering at the University for Technology and Economy (HTW) in Berlin. Then I worked as an IT consultant and finished my master degree in industrial engineering at HTW Berlin.
At Daimler AG in Sindelfingen (near to Stuttgart), I wrote my bachelor thesis in strategic project management. Moreover, I gained project management experience in companies like Ströer Media Brands AG in Berlin.
At Inpsyde, I am responsible for our Dev Team 2.
Sebastian about Working Remotely
I never worked remotely before. All I did was working in home office for some time. That was during my employment as an IT consultant. And during this time, I wrote my master thesis.
Working remotely means to me, that I don’t lose any time commuting to work and back home. Apart from that, I don’t see much difference compared to another job. But what’s a must when working remotely: A working room that is separated from the living area.
The fact that you don’t see the colleagues in person is a little bit difficult though. And I tend to work more. Closing the office door just doesn’t inevitably mean it’s the end of work. But in general, I like that I can work with fewer distractions.
Managing projects as a job is more difficult too when working remotely. After all, communication problems between the project manager (PM) and developers can come up much easier. But the communication between PM and his team is the key to successful project management. Especially when operating on some kind of abstraction level, you reach the boundaries of communication quite fast.
I think it’s very important to not lose sight of the person “at the other end”. This requires a lot more empathy towards internals and externals on the part of the project manager.
