The art of scoring all project balls simultaneously in the goal

The 48 year old programme manager Holger is leading a very large, complex, sophisticated and critical infrastructure-programme that is a part of several projects and faces a commissioned deadline. Political disputes, bad performance by the industry-partner and a high level of technical complexity continually create difficulties in the programme. As line manager, Holger is overloaded and isn't able to achieve better performance with the programme. He is in dire need of external support, someone who can run the operational programme management part and keep a manager's perspective over the individual projects entailed. The external support is found in Ralf, a very experienced programme manager who not only supports Holger with the operation but offers technical and methodological sparring at eye level.
