This is the "About Us" of this website:
My name is Peter Stoemmer and I am the owner of it.
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:
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".
