Additionally, you are fluent in verbal and written English.

As a person, you are comfortable in working with a broad range of specialists, not being the technical expert yourself, but able to facilitate and understand the implications of the work of the specialist. You are good at communicating in different terms and with different perspectives depending on the audience and able to set perspectives, see connections and context in highly specialized functions vs. our general NPD roadmap and organization.

You are also comfortable with breaking barriers and existing ways for working, while able to work and enable others to deliver in a changing environment.
