Position: Management Consultant and Owner at Fyrkil ApS
Technical University of Denmark (DTU) - MSc Operations Research

Jakob has more than 25+ years of experience within the IT Services Business as a management consultant and as a project manager – with a large experience within outsourcing, and IT process optimization. The experience is gained through consultant work for a number of Danish and International companies. Among his specialities are project Management, IT Management and optimization, Strategic Outsourcing and Outsourcing health-check, and Business Process definition and description.

Jakob has the necessary “drive” to make sure things happen and to make follow up on open issues. At the same time, he is good to ensure a pleasant working environment and that each participant feels well treated. As a person, he is open and frank and communicates directly and informally.

Motivation

Jakob would like to “give back” to a mentee, and share his experience – successes as well as failures – as a self-employed consultant, working for various companies. Also, he would like helping a mentee if the aim is for going towards the consultant business and/or as self employed.
