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.

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.
When I started this blog in January 2009, my goal was writing one new post biweekly. More than 3 years later this turned out to be a quite realistic estimation of what I am able to do. We had 74 blog posts until end of 2011. Next midterm goal is reaching the milestone of 100 articles until end of 2012.
