ABOUT HENNING KRISTENSEN
Welcome to my Consultant website where I shortly describe what I do and have done.
Personality, and extensive skills in coaching, have given the consultant the essential tools and know how to motivate members of cross-functional teams to reach their full potential.
The consultant’s extensive communication skills in, combined with humour and sincere curiosity makes him highly respected by everybody.
Henning manages, as a highly effective project manager, to get the most out of a team. He always leads from the front and thereby maintains a high degree of motivation. Challenges are tackled with fantastic drive and he clearly gets even more motivated when things are going a bit “uphill”.
Henning was born in 1965 and have a daughter at the age of 23. Currently, Henning is single and lives in a small house south of Aarhus.
He has done sports all his life, starting with football, then Moto Cross at a high level. At a fairly late age of 28, Henning started lifting weights and to practice in fitness competitions, the latest was in 2010 at the age of 45 years. Henning became the most successful drug-free fitness athlete in Denmark with one time World Champion and four times Danish Champion. Now he goes to the GYM a few times a week just to maintain good health.
25 Years of experience with product development and 15 years as a project manager
Personality and extensive skills in coaching have given the consultant the tools and know how to motivate members of cross-functional teams to reach their full potential while cultivating their ability to perform together and produce the required and relevant results.
Knowledge, experience and a solid interdisciplinary technical background, have given the consultant the overview and courage that is needed to successfully navigate and manage development projects ranging from large and complex to mid-sized and smaller in their complexity and lead time.
Four very large, and more than ten mid-sized development projects through the years have given him the experience, skills and backbone to accomplish project goals according to their given specification, schedule and target cost requirements, whilst staying within budget.
Developing products consisting of electronics, hardware/software but definitely also physical structures with high demands on strength and fatigue. The product categories cover Circulator Pumps based on trendsetting technologies produced in a very high volume and CE marked MDD approved Medical Devices for lifting and transferring disabled people with high requirements on risk and lifetime.
To meet customer requirements and value without loosing the possibility of creating a new blockbuster, user involvement as early as possible is essentiel. I believe in making pretotyping (pre prototyping) as fast as possible in high speed iterative process of writing requirements specifications.
Set-based concurrent engineering is to acknowledge that we have imperfect knowledge about the new product we want to design therefore we will be running multiple design options for our subsystems and aggressively remove the weakest solutions when we have the data to do so.
Hennings honesty and sense of humor as well as his ability to create dialogue leaves people with a positive experience.
Henning does not compromise in his search for the optimal solution to a given problem.
