Despite all my attention to detail, I never lose sight of the overarching goal.

My services are flexibly customised to your individual requirements - from targeted consulting to the complete management of extensive projects.

An impact-orientated, participatory and innovative administration is the prerequisite for a strong democracy.

In my role as a head of department and policy officer, I have made a significant contribution to increasing efficiency and effectiveness in the Austrian federal administration. Through my work, which has taken me to numerous international organisations and European institutions, I have been able to learn from the best. As an international project evaluator, I was able to continuously hone my expertise based on global best practices.

The cross-sectoral exchange with stakeholders from science, business and civil society has proven to be essential for the implementation of complex initiatives. I am particularly proud of the founding and long-standing management of Austria's first innovation laboratory for the public sector. As a hub in the European innovation network, the lab and its dedicated team have realised several pioneering projects. In my consultancy work, I have supported numerous public institutions in the development and implementation of change projects.

My practical experience is also reflected in my academic work, where I have published white papers, manuals and articles, developed teaching materials and worked as a lecturer in the fields of performance management, innovation management, e-government and knowledge management. As a lecturer and speaker, I have been sharing my knowledge of effective, citizen-centred and innovative administration throughout Europe for many years. In addition, I have proven my talent for creating interactive and educational experiences by conceptualising and moderating events, including the largest innovation conference for the public sector in Austria.

Through the tailor-made implementation of projects in the focus areas of organisational management, change management and participation, I work with my clients on the central levers of a future-proof and sustainable public sector.

Whats's Next Institute

Every project is unique. Strong partners are the key to success!

The WHAT’S NEXT INSTITUTE helps organisations in business, politics and society to deal with the future in a structured way. After all, the future is no longer what it used to be. Gone is the illusion of planning certainty and linear developments. However, those who recognise changes and their potential earlier than others gain a head start and open up scope for action and innovation.
