About Us

This is the "About Us" of this website:

My name is Peter Stoemmer and I am the owner of it.


19. August 1957

Munich, Germany

since 2006 Beijing, China



Throughout my career, I have been working in projects: as a team member, sub-project manager, and in the position of a senior project manager.

Following the principle of "learning by doing", I made a lot of mistakes in my projects and learned my lessons from those mistakes. You find a big deal of that learning on this website.

My PM experience comprises management of projects in the following areas:

  • Communication equipment and large communication systems projects
  • Communication infra structure projects
  • Company wide learning programs for project managers and senior project managers
  • Planning and implementation of project management methodology and PMO
  • Training, consulting and coaching of project managers and senior project managers, in almost all European and Asian countries and in the United States of America.

Born 19. August 1957, I grew up in Muenchen (or Munich), in the State of Bavaria, Germany. Most of my education I enjoyed in Muenchen and greater area and I obtained my Masters Degree in Mathematics and Physics at Technische Universitaet Muenchen. After that I joined teaching school in Bavaria from which I graduated as teacher for mathematics and physics in 1986.

In the same year, I started my professional career with Siemens AG, in engineering, design, and development of electronic devices and software. After nearly six years in R & D, I changed to sales of large communication systems, and since the end of 1998, I am active in the area of training, consulting, and coaching of executives, senior project managers, and project managers.

Currently, I still work in this profession, being located in Beijing.

When coaching executives or project managers, I follow and apply the ideas of Systemic Coaching which I started to learn and practice since 2003.

I am also holding the PMP credential of the Project Management Institute, PMI.

Work is not everything, so, in order to keep my work life balance I practice swimming, cycling, and running - earlier combined into triathlons, meanwhile reduced to pure fun and recreation - and a little bit of photography at the side.

And believe it or not, putting time into this website, helps me a lot to relax from my "day job".
