Henrico Dolfing
Hi, my name is Henrico Dolfing, and I help C-level executives in the financial service industry with interim management and recovering troubled technology projects.

I have done recoveries, reviews, and advisory on complex programs and projects for large international organisations for more than 15 years. And as an experienced angel investor I have significant experience with innovative technology projects delivered by small teams.

Projects fail for a variety of reasons. Technology projects in particular have a low success rate. Typically more than half of them are considered a failure. If your current project is off-track, chances are I can bring the necessary knowledge and experience to get the job done.

Troubled projects are never pretty. Often there isn’t time for guessing, just acting. I have helped companies to save projects from the brink of failure. By combining my deep technical knowledge with a proven process, I quickly address major problems and bottlenecks, putting the project back on track.

I provide the leadership necessary to solve complicated problems. I am not afraid to deliver bad news; I am not afraid of putting my reputation behind the decisions I make; and most of all, I am responsive and sensitive to the intricacies of troubled projects.

I have a strong technical background as a software developer and solution architect, including an M.Sc. degree in Computer Science and a B.Ec. in Economics.

My diverse international experience allows me to successfully collaborate with people from all over the globe. Born in the Netherlands, I have lived in Germany, the USA, and Switzerland. I have worked on both longer and shorter projects all through Europe, the Channel Islands, the Caribbean, and North America.

I spend my spare time in the Swiss mountains enjoying alpine marathons, climbing, downhill mountain biking, river rafting and leisurely hikes with my wife and 5 year old son.

My writing

With my writing I try to help executives to be more effective and successful when it comes to delivering business value through projects.

To deliver value through projects there are a number of jobs that a CxO (like Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operations Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Technology Officer, Chief Information Officer, etc.) will need to be able to do well when leading organizations in a project economy. 

As a result, I’ve organised my site into 9 portals representing the most important jobs to be done to help you find the content that best suits your need. These are:

Sponsoring Projects

You’ll find these highlighted under the heading ‘I Need Help With …’ on the sidebar on this site.

Project failure case studies 

I try to learn as much as possible from other people’s mistakes. That is why I study project failures and write case studies on them. You will find this collection here.
