“You got to live your change!”

Rainer Maria Rielke

Project Management is not just a profession – it’s also a passion.

The mix of planning, coordination, organizational development and coaching with a concrete objective requires a clear mind, curiosity about new things and delight in collaborating with people.

This is something that fits Kerstin Diefenbach, founder and managing director of mitra consulting, to a tee.

As a trained bank clerk and qualified engineer for landscape planning, she was already able to gather first experiences in managing major projects during her university studies.  As a trained process and operation organizer, PMI®- certified project manager (Project Manager Professional PMP®) and Professional Scrum Master, managing projects is something that comes naturally to her.  

Kerstin Diefenbach has been working as a project manager, business analyst and organizational structure specialist for international companies in various industries for 20 years.

She knows both sides of the project business: As an internal employee of two Berlin-based banks, she supervised projects on the commissioning side. Since 2006, in her capacity as an external consultant, she has been providing support for her satisfied clients in the areas of project management, process optimization, requirements engeneering and change management. Over the past years, she has guided various mid-sized and major organizational and IT projects in the area of Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Enterprise Ressource Planning (ERP) and Project Management (PM). Her main focus is on professional, strategic and methodical support for project teams. In successfully implementing her client’s projects, she shares her wealth of experience as a project manager and her passion for managing projects.

Company Philosophy

In ancient Vedic mythology, ‘Mitra‘ is the god of friendship, contracts and the guardian of cosmic order. 

And this is also mitra consulting’s guiding principle in its relationship with clients: Whether classic or agile – we will help you to keep order in your project and to reach your project goals – as agreed upon and in a spirit of trusting collaboration.
