I am Ute Estor, your expert in project- and process management.
What I love most about projects or temporary limited engagements is the challenge to work with different people and characters towards a clear goal in a given time-frame. As well as the richness and diversity of experiences I am able to collect doing so.
When I am not working on project-plans, process-maps, as-is analysis, target definition and my customer´s employees; I enjoy spending time with my family in the nature around Lake Constance, in the mountains and also doing sports or travelling.

Commitment to the point
From Start-up to market leader
From Supply Chain to Sales:
From functional to strategic
From classic to agile:
From my experience a lot of projects in companies fail, because they never started due to missing resources or professional project management. The daily work is always more important: the next order, the next marketing concept and the next delivery. Quickly there is a loss in focus.
Be honest: how many projects are there in your company that were started enthusiastically and were never finished?
I steer your project to ensure, that initial enthusiasm is really followed by a successful project. Because often projects fail due to missing Ressources or a lack in professional project management.
Doing so I`m happy to use classical as well as agile project management methods depending on the need.
What’s important to me is to not only consult you, but to also offer hands-on implementation of your projects to ensure the success.
Thanks to my functional experience in different areas, I ensure that the project is going to be a success, by happily monitoring the implementation for you.
- Development and implementation of new Go-to-market concepts including the needed processes and IT-solutions, that come with it.
- Organisational build up and development from Start up to medium size company.
- Project lead for 120 Pop-up stores during the Football World Cup 2006 including inventory management, logistics, POS-appearance, employee-recruitment, merchandising.
- Implementation of harmonised European trade term systems.
- Development of brand strategy and brand launch.
- If you need further working examples please get in contact with me.
The world has turned into a more volatile place: digitalization, sustainability, globalization, world-wide crises…The requirements to your company keep changing. You have the feeling, that your actual way of working is partly inefficient and not enough target oriented?
Together with you, I will create processes, roles and responsibilities, that smooth the way for your company`s future without forgetting the employees involved.
- Process-optimization for cross-functional processes within companies (e.g. new markets, new brands,..)
- Optimization of marketing processes considering interface-departments as well
- Cross functional optimization and development of development- and production-calendars.
- Drive of Change process from a classic hierarchical company structure to selfmanagement based on holocracy with roles and circles.
If you have a temporary resource-bottleneck, I am happy to jump in on an operational level based on my broad diverse experiences.

Ute Estor is a valuable member of the unternehmensverbesserer.de network, because due to her analytical capabilities, her pragmatic orientation and her diverse experiences she delivered important contribution to problem solving in a lot of projects. I absolutely recommend Ute as employee, consultant and interims manager for project- and process management.
Ute has broad and diverse expert knowledge in Marketing, Sales, process analysis, process management, project management at her disposal... She is convincing through commitment and flexibility... She knows how to estimate internal as well as external business partners to the point, to motivate them and to navigate them safely towards expected goals and results.
Thanks to her long time industry experience in Marketing and Sales, Ute was able to enormously quickly understand our processes and arrange measures of optimization at the right spots.

Her very good communicative skills and her natural kindness were the base for the successful guidance of the internationally acting marketing agency as well as the management of important partners to our brand.
