What is this blog about?

This blog is providing showcases, dashboards, tools, techniques and templates, all focused on intelligent data analysis, planning, simulation, optimization, visualization and project management.

Who is writing?

My name is Robert Mundigl and this is my personal blog. Based in Munich (Germany), I am working as a freelance management consultant in Europe, primarily for telecommunication companies and cable operator. The main focus of my professional work is on Business Intelligence, Corporate Performance Management, Financial Planning, Models for Simulation and Optimization as well as on Pricing and Revenue Management. Of course Project Management activities are always accompanying my work.

On demand, I am also offering Excel / VBA development, Tableau consulting and Excel and Tableau on-site trainings.

Why “clearly and simply”?

The blog’s name is taken from a quote by the Austrian/British Philosopher Sir Karl Popper:

“Anyone who cannot speak clearly and simply should say nothing and continue to work until he can do so.”

From my point of view he couldn’t have said it better. Turning data into useful information is the prerequisite. Communicating your results and insights clearly and simply is the key success factor.

I do not claim to always meet this requirement. Actually I am sure that I am failing most of the time. But I am having my goal and I am trying to improve every day. This blog’s purpose is to document all my efforts and share my results with you.

How often will this blog be updated?

When I started this blog in January 2009, my goal was writing one new post biweekly. This worked out well for the first three years and we had 74 blog posts end of 2011 (goal: 78). Unfortunately, my blog activities considerably slowed down 2012 and came to a complete standstill in 2013. I had to realize that I cannot not meet the original goal in the long run.

When writing this (end of May 2017), I just published the 140th blog post, which makes (in terms of figures) an average of one new article every three weeks. I will try to keep this speed up now, but I can’t make any promises on the regularity. If you want to be automatically informed about new posts, please subscribe by RSS or email.
