Sascha D. Kasper
IT’S JUST WHAT I DO
Over the past few decades, I collected experience and knowledge in many areas. At the same time I keep an open mind and actively explore new domains.
You feel that your organization is not at peak performance and/or you lack a shared purpose and underlying culture?
You are not alone. I will be happy to point you in the right direction by assessing the situation and working with you on a plan to improve it.
No, there is no magic spell, making things happen quickly and easily. Implementing change of any kind is hard work and requires determination and tenacity of the change drivers as well as an open mind and collaboration from all others.
Bad news: that ‘change project’ you want to do or already started? It’s not really a project at all. Why? Because it has no defined end. Change is continuous (some say it’s the only constant) and needs to be understood and treated as such.
Good news: this also means you can keep improving.
PEOPLE ABOUT ME
I have been working with Sascha over a period of few years as part of Deuromedia’s Operations team; for a while he was also my direct supervisor and thus I got to know him very well. Among many others, I think his greatest quality is the ability to see all the time the big picture: in a small private conversation on a technical matter, in an internal call with people from various teams, in a conference with important clients or as COO and Managing Director of an entire company branch. That allows Sascha to distinguish the important things from the surrounding noise and to take the best and most efficient approach on solving problems. Personally I had a lot to learn from him and I believe that getting in touch with people of such quality can only boost anybody’s carrier.
During our many years of cooperation, I have learned to highly appreciate Sascha Kasper as a structured thinker and consistent IT project manager who always attaches great importance to economic efficiency of projects and focus on customer needs. With his special expertise and methodology in project management, service management and Microsoft collaboration and portal technologies, he was a driving force both in many customer projects as well as the development of our own software products.
I have worked with Sascha for several years and appreciated his aptitudes as a managing director of Deuromedia Brasov – good negotiator, reliable, proactive, trustworthy and very positive attitude even in most stressful situations. He provided the motivation to us on those critical moments just before project succeeds. These qualities recommend Sascha, as I was pleased working with him.
I know Sascha as a highly professional, very well self organized and process oriented manager, focused on achieving business goals and objectives in most efficient way. His ability to listen and understand customer needs, thorough judgement, his talent for finding suitable solutions were of great help in most of projects, where we were participating together. It was the real pleasure to work with Sascha.
Always a pleasure working on projects with Sascha. Never troubled by difficult problems or situations, Sascha focusses on the goal and gets the job done. Highly recommended.

I had the pleasure to work with Sascha during the complex IT infrastructure project developed for his company. From the first meeting I’ve noticed his ability for pertinent analysis and decision making.
