I am a book author, university lecturer and conference speaker specializing in topics of Leadership, Learning and Legal. A Stanford University Ph.D. and former Accenture executive, I possess nearly 20 years of consulting experience in designing and implementing global strategy, sales and marketing programs for Software and Life Sciences enterprises.
A little about what I do.
I have managed global programs and projects on various topics, including: New Product Introduktion, Service Portfolio Definition, Field Enablement, Shared Services, Talent Management, Corporate Universities, Organizational Design, Business Process Modelling, Software Implementation and Change Management.
I often design and deliver global workshops for corporate clients seeking to align stakeholders, departments, or geographical regions in order to address particular business challenges. The workshop results are documented and include executive recommendations for next steps. I also offer individual and team coaching.
I frequently moderate and speak at in-house and cross-company conferences on a variety of subjects. I also lecture and offer academic seminars at universities and business schools, promoting ideas on Lateral Leadership, Lifelong Learning and Liquid Legal.
From the Blog
One reason why consultants are engaged (and may actually be worth the money) is that they work on the same topics for several different clients and, therefore, possess what is usually called best practice expertise (“practice” spelled with a “c” in the middle).
“Liquid Legal – Transforming Legal into a Business Savvy, Information Enabled and Performance Driven Industry” is the title of a new Springer publication (Heidelberg, 2016) which I edited together with Kai Jacob from SAP and Dr. Dierk Schindler from NetApp.
What my clients say.
“Roger’s credo to ‘build organizations on people and not on positions’ is both visionary and timely: In an increasingly complex and unpredictable world, it is the hidden talents of employees that hold the biggest value potential for companies. Raising employee engagement and finding ‘lost giants’ is a crucial task for all business leaders.”
“Authentic, experienced, curious and creative – Roger possesses the qualities that executives expect from leadership coaches.”- Partner Statement(Executive Management, High Tech Industry)
“In our department, we have implemented Roger’s adaptation of ‘situational leadership:’ Every team member is encouraged to create and pursue her own projects and to lead others leveraging her personal talents.”- Client Statement(Global Legal, Software Industry)
