Founder of the BetaCodex Network,
Expert on Reinventing Organizations for High Performance, and Best-Selling Author of Organize for Complexity

Niels is something of a rare animal. He combines two roles in his client work: On one hand, he offers inspirational, thought-provoking, highly conceptual and entertaining impulses as a world-class speaker. On the other hand, he helps organizations internationally with triggering, mapping and leading profound & robust change initiatives as a highly effective advisor. Few people are capable of doing both, on the same high level of professionality.
 
Niels combines all of that with a literally boundary-less, world-wide scope and with speaking four of the world´s most important languages fluently (English, German, Spanish and Portuguese). He has an international network of trusted partners and colleagues that he relies upon in all of his advisory work.

Prior to the BetaCodex Network, Niels was for five years a director with the prestigious Beyond Budgeting Round Table BBRT.

Books

Niels´ second book, Leading with Flexible Targets - Beyond Budgeting in Practice was awarded the Financial Times Germany Best Business Book award, in 2006. Both this book and his latest one, entitled Organize for Complexity: How to Get Life Back Into Work to Build the High-Performance Organization were lauded by critics and readers and became bestsellers.
