The high-quality implementation of projects is our core expertise!

We combine management, process and methodological competence with extensive expertise. We are able to manage both smaller single-designer projects as well as large projects shared with several designers or several companies.

Our project managers have industry-specific experience and expertise, creative methods and the necessary rigour to keep costs and schedules under control. By managing the project well, we can ensure its successful implementation.

All projects must be managed

The scope of the project being managed is irrelevant – projects of all sizes must always be managed. Of course, the emphasis may change according to scope and schedule. In small projects, agility and creativity are emphasised. In large projects, we pay special attention to systematic implementation and monitoring of the schedule and budget.

For all product and service development projects, we designate a project manager to ensure successful delivery. We operate under the project management of your organisation and synchronise the different phases of the project to follow the project stages of your organisation.

The alternative to recruitment brings flexibility

A hired interim project manager and director brings flexibility to your organisation’s daily project management. Projects can start out as urgent, in which case management resources must also be available quickly. If you need to recruit a project manager when a project is already underway, you are way behind schedule. We can quickly provide you an experienced leader for your needs – to work part-time or full-time.

Through our project manager service, your organisation is able to get an external project manager or project leader for a larger project. We are familiar with managing large entities, and experts from several different organisations can work on projects at the same time.

What we do

Our experts

The best project is a completed project. Although a specification is never so good that it would not have a single component worth improving, realism and resources are still the best drivers for completing a project.

Jari Lehikoinen

Jari is a specialist in the development of new ideas and concepts, with extensive methodological expertise and years of practical experience and expertise in project implementation, management and coordination. Jari has the ability to produce creative insight and concrete crystallisations on even the most challenging and fragmented entities. Jari masters the development of mechanics, problem solving and project management tasks in a multidisciplinary manner

Multiproject environments are challenging and interesting. I've found that the fluency of communication is at the heart of all management.

Erkki Seppäläinen

Erkki is a physicist with experience that combines theory and practice in both product and process development. He has worked in several multidisciplinary and multicultural projects and has successfully sought functional solutions both in Finland and abroad. Erkki is involved in several patents as an inventor and he is always interested in applying or developing new technology. He is inspired by finding precision expertise among the top-notch specialists in the world and by networking, and he is always ready to tackle new technologies. Erkki is especially interested in optics and related special expertise.

When you forget things, I will remind you. When schedules are delayed, I will reorganise. Whatever the change, I will handle it.

Mikko Kukkonen

Mikko is used to working in roles where you have to manage a multidisciplinary team.  The management, optimisation and functionality of work and subcontracting entities have played a major role in his work. Mikko’s work history includes both HW and SW projects, battery technology, materials research and power management optimisation for embedded systems.

Mikko is able to support our customers as a consultant who provides support in the choice of materials and in the development of policies and production. He is used to solving the customer’s problems and developing suggestions for improvement and carrying out, for example, quality audits of the factory production. He is also proficient at managing projects when the customer and many design partners are working together in tackling the same project.

Mikko is able to adapt to different types of entities. He is characterised by the application of different project management methods to best suit the working environment and each project.

In product development, something interesting and new is always created that no one else has done before.

Onni-Matti Halkola

Onni-Matti has a strong history in project management in an international environment with high-tech products. He has the ability to lead and design projects from concept projects all the way to production. He is familiar with assembling international product development teams and creating subcontracting networks. Onni-Matti also has experience in the role of consultant in mechanics verifications, both in assemblies and in the reliability and auditing of mechanics.

Injection moulding products and related consulting as well as electronics have been part of Onni-Matti’s job description throughout his career. For this reason, Onni-Matti acts as a representative of LINK at the Finnish Plastics Association (Muoviyhdistys).

He has special expertise in energy solutions for new technology and in electric vehicles.

New and unique benefits serve as fuel for the implementation of a project

Paavo Mäkelä

Paavo’s educational background is in mechanical engineering, industrial design and design management. He has over 10 years of work experience and often works in multidisciplinary design projects, where industrial design and mechanical engineering merge into a single uniform entity.

Paavo is also competent in smoothly tackling the field of market data, trends and consumer beliefs in the world of strategic design.

Paavo is interested in working with new and different innovations and the development of novelty value. Projects like this can be accessed especially with start-up companies.
