For clients from industry and commerce whos roof are literally on fire 🔥 from the point of view of personnel resources, I take on interim projects or tasks in middle management. 

Alexander Kronsteiner e.U.

My credo: " Reliable to the goal through clarity, structure and focus -. 
sustainable through experience, flexibility and honesty".


In leadership roles, I love to solve or shape things in a consistent, calm and structured way. In this way I relieve from pressure on acute bottlenecks in a stressful environment or implement difficult change processes. 

In contrast to classical management consulting, my focus is not on theory but on temporary, active hands-on implementation like… 

when there is a short-term need due to unexpected resignation, illness or burnout of managers 

✅ when special projects cannot be handled by existing staff who are busy with day-to-day business. 

✅ when experienced implementation support is needed for reorganisation, process development or restructuring 

✅ when there is a general need for management support 

✅ when an “outsider” can have a better effect in bridging extraordinary situations in the company 

Characteristics and Philosophy

Due to my international, wide-ranging experience, I can adapt to new tasks very quickly and get inspired about them. 

 Of particular advantage are … 

✅ my leadership experience and team building qualities   

✅ my technical background and experience in middle (C-1) management

✅ my experience in R&D and product management in the field of mechanical engineering 

✅ my structured, strategic approach

✅ my empathic, communicative qualities, 

✅ as well as my consistency and perseverance.  

Only win-win results are meaningful and sustainable –  

that is my firm conviction.
