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. The first three years this worked out well and we had 74 blog posts end of 2011 (goal: 78). Unfortunately my blog activities considerably slowed down 2012 and came to a standstill in 2013 and the first months of 2014.

I am trying to revive the blog now, but I don’t have a snowball’s hope in hell to catch up to my original goal. When writing this (June 2014), I just published the 100th post. Thus, I decided to revise my objective. The new goal is getting to an average of 20 articles per year, which means the blog should reach a total of 120 posts end of 2014.
