I believe that IT is mainly about working with people. A skill that can never be learned enough.
Since 2005 I have been working full time helping companies on their agile path. Sometimes it’s with just a few conversations affirming the path, in many other cases, it’s been long term assignments, catching people when they are doing the right thing. At other moments giving gently nudges in the right direction
The last years agile has become a buzzword. Great companies thank agile for where they are today. People see the effectiveness of these companies and mistake it for pure efficiency. They want to go agile to do double the work in half the time. This is a claim that is both true and false. Anyone (company, team, person) on it’s way to agility learns to focus.First become more effective and only then do that more efficient. Going faster in the wrong direction, does not help you to arrive faster, let alone be the first.
I speak at agile conferences around the world. Community driven or company events. With my presentations I want to inspire your audience and make them think. I tell stories from my personal life and invite the audience to translate that to their situation.
