Meet our employee

Lukas von Kohout is a manager at the Center for Strategic Projects.

As Manager, I am responsible for planning and project management tasks in our team. I consider myself successful if I integrate the relevant decision-making departments into the solution of the actual problem, harnessing the company dynamic. The tasks I deal with touch on growth, efficiency and governance topics of all types on a global level, from the rigorous restructuring of a business unit or the new market approach of a segment to target development for the Group as a whole. Alongside my project work, I am closely involved in recruiting new talent and in developing the content of our efficiency initiatives.

The internal and external environments are complex, diverse and ever-changing. Our aim is to develop lasting structures, to provide guidance in uncertain territory and to empower all those involved to be part of change processes. This involves not only intellectual ability and political astuteness, but also an excellent capacity to win confidence and exercise strong powers of persuasion among all those involved.

My background

I studied an interdisciplinary degree in media at university and worked as part of a philosophical research group. I have worked in India, Australia and Germany in the fields of strategy consulting, organization and sales in media, IT and politics. I developed my entrepreneurial skills setting up various online activities, heading a student consulting group and leading a company sale in the SME segment. I also exercised my commitment to social issues, receiving funding for this from a charitable organization. I then decided to apply for the Deutsche Telekom Start Up! program, and joined the company in the Chairman's Department, which was also my starting point at the Center for Strategic Projects.

... first of all I find its mission fascinating: restructuring one of the biggest players in the most dynamic industry. Secondly, because at the Center I benefit from dynamic, holistic HR development and thirdly, because the friendly atmosphere and good work-life balance provide an excellent setting for long-term growth.

... we are really going to meet our high expectations for transformation and employee development, while a pleasant development setting is extremely conducive to a fulfilling professional life.
