Lufthansa Industry Solutions pools project management expertise in a new operational division

Stefan Ebmeyer is the head of the new Project Management Excellence operational division

The new (“Project Management Excellence (PMX)”) operational division will strengthen Lufthansa Industry Solutions’ competences in the area of project management. This is the response of the IT consulting and system integration specialist to the growing demand for expertise in this sector.

From agile management for large-scale projects to advice on the best methods for digitization projects all the way up to the development of project infrastructures, the demands placed on project management are becoming ever more complex. Companies often reach their limits as far as capacities and special expertise are concerned, especially when they need to quickly introduce innovative technologies on a tight schedule in the course of digital transformation.

In order to meet the increasing need for experienced project managers, Lufthansa Industry Solutions brought the PMx operational division into being last June. Here the company will from now on pool its many decades of experience in managing national and international projects – whether for SMEs or DAX-listed corporations. It is functionally assigned to the Technology Consulting business unit.

“Over and over again, projects fail because the importance of project management is underestimated,” says Bernhard Kube, Vice President of Technology Consulting at Lufthansa Industry Solutions. “Our PMX competence center will purposefully help our customers implement their specific IT projects efficiently and at low cost.”

Profit from decades of experience

Around fifteen highly qualified and certified project managers will from now on use their expertise in the support of specific customer projects. What is more, the employees in the PMX operational division will, if necessary, make use of the project management methods developed by Lufthansa Industry Solutions itself. They are an integral part of the range of services on offer, along with competence in other methods, of course.

The head of the new operational division is Stefan Ebmeyer. This 55-year-old computer scientist, who worked as project manager in the Logistics business unit starting in 1999 and has been Executive Consultant at Lufthansa Industry Solutions since 2008, has spent a great deal of time working with our clients at the Hamburg Port Authority, Hamburg-Süd and Vattenfall.
