Welcome to my web log. My name is Mark Heckmann. I hold a diploma in business administration and engineering and in psychology. Currently I work on my PhD and as a lecturer for psychology at the University of Bremen, Germany. Also, I work as a business consultant in the field of organizational diagnostics and market research (more under www.talkingdata.de). This blog is basically about everything that attracts my interest. The blog is mostly written in German as it is primarily of interest to locals.
