Working in the project management of a company that is a market leader in design, development, innovation and production represents a great challenge. Short deadlines in which an offer must be made, a product produced and delivered, decisions made are some of the tasks I face. In order for the project to be successfully implemented, I collaborate with colleagues from other departments on a daily basis, create product prices, feasibility studies and implement operational project controlling. Also, I have the ability to use high-quality data analysis to point out losses and additional costs, thus influencing the success of the company’s operations.
