  • Working freelance at Nonstop Consulting

    Since 2012 I've worked freelance out of Nonstop Consulting primarily providing senior IT project management.

     

    I’ve worked full-time in the IT industry since 1989 and my experience includes IT solution development, IT project management, IT programme management assistance and IT management consultancy.

    My experience has been gained working as an IT solution developer, IT architect, IT project manager, assistant IT programme manager, IT development manager, IT service delivery manager and as an IT management consultant. I’ve held positions in Danish companies, foreign companies with branches in Denmark and I’ve had partnerships in two start-ups. Sector focus has predominantly been finance, public and transportation.

    My passion and primary interest is the development and efficient delivery of IT solutions. I create momentum and results due to my direct, practically and theoretically founded, analytical and collaborative approach. As one client told me “Finally a project manager that doesn’t need to bring on other nerds to talk to the nerds in the project”.

    In 2017, I finished a master in IT leadership and management from the IT University of Copenhagen with a thesis on “Knowledge based reduction of risk and uncertainty in IT projects”.

    Martin Ytting de Richelieu

    Senior Director - Service Management at IT, Medico and Tele. Capital Region

    Jeg har gennem 3 år - i rollen som seniorleverandør - arbejdet sammen med Jesper Bech - i projektlederrollen - på en leverance af Region Hovedstadens Nødweb.

    Jesper har styret et vanskeligt projekt i mål, og løbende sikret sig at styregruppen har haft relevante beslutningsoplæg og ændringsanmodninger present. Der er ydet en ekstraordinær indsat i de perioder, hvor fremdriften har været kritisk.

    Yderligere har Jesper leveret arkitektur- og teststøtte, hvor kompetencerne ikke har været tilstrækkelige i projektet.

    Interessenthåndtering og styringsformalia har været håndteret ”lige efter bogen”.

    Personligt er Jesper meget behagelig og rolig, uden dog at undertrykke de nødvendige egenskaber der kræves for at sikre fremdrift og konkrete leverancer.

    Bo Schor

    Program director at ScanJour

    Jeg har haft et godt og behageligt samarbejde med Jesper igennem de sidste 4 år, hvor han som konsulent har repræsenteret kundesiden. Jesper har en stor gennemslagskraft via sit store overblik og indsigt. Jesper besidder såvel stor arbejdskapacitet som stor kompetence. Hans intellektuelle niveau gør det nemt for ham at sætte sig ind i nyt stof. Jesper er en god kommunikator – både mundtligt og skriftligt.

    Jesper har en god evne for at frembringe løsninger i konfliktsituationer. Jesper er en person med høj integritet, og jeg er sikker på, at han kan give afgørende bidrag i enhver sammenhæng, hvor projektledelse, aftaleklarhed og en løsningsorientering er i centrum.

    Jeg vil sætte stor pris på at samarbejde med Jesper igen, og jeg vil på det varmeste anbefale Jesper til såvel potentielle kunder og arbejdsgivere.
