As the CEO of Lean Sherpas and a Certified Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) Trainer and Coach, I introduce others to large-scale development. With knowledge gained in recent years, we create superior learning experiences and arm agile practitioners with tools that really matter. Tools that can be applied straight away and that make all the difference.I work with start-ups and organizations (Yello, Ringier, GIZ) to bring innovative products to the market in the shortest possible time. Large organizations (SAP, BMW, Adidas) also hire me to optimize their teams’ adaptability to growing challenges – through an agile way of working and through an organizational redesign.
