The Team of Structure & Process

Updated February 10th 2017

Structure & Process is an international consulting and collaboration design studio, based in Germany. We are working on organisational development, team collaboration, participatory leadership, interactive events and personal productivity.

The company was founded by Martina Röll and Tanja Korvenmaa in early 2012. Today, it is a sole proprietorship of Martina’s and has a team of seven partners:

Martina Röll leads the organisational consulting work of the company and holds many other roles.

Martina Röll, Founder, Consulting Lead

Martina came into leadership positions early, founding two companies while attending High School and University. She studied business economics at TU Dresden, worked briefly as an employed IT project manager, and became a freelance e-business consultant in 2001. Through her Weblog, “Das E-Business Weblog”, Martina became a well-known speaker and executive advisor on the impacts of the internet on business and society.

Observing the interactions in her client organisations, Martina became disillusioned with the status quo of how companies are run. After a 2-year sabbatical, she founded Structure & Process to explore new ways of collaboration, both in her own company and with clients.

Martina comes from Luxembourg and lives in Dresden, Germany. Contact her at in German, English, Luxembourgish, French or Finnish.


Rob van den Brand runs the front and back office at Structure & Process, communicating with applicants, taking registrations from events participants, onboarding and coaching new Partners and setting up logistics for workshops and seminars.

Rob started his career as a finance professional in multinational companies, where he worked in accounting, controlling and project management roles. Although successful in his work, he experienced profound dissatisfaction with the way organisations operate and people collaborate.

In his search for better ways, he stumbled upon Getting Things Done, Holacracy and many other ideas for making work more joyful, energizing and fulfilling.

Rob is focused on providing the necessary guidance to organisations that want to transition to different ways of working. He also likes to help people get more productive personally.

Rob is from the Netherlands and speaks Dutch and English. Contact Rob at
