Agility is a form of culture, not a tool!

I am enthusiastic about accompanying people, teams and organisations on their way to a meaningful, value-creating and successful working world.

I started as a developer. I experienced how nice it is when a customer is happy about the new product. My first Scrum product.
After that, I continued to research how to build better products and worked for a long time as an IT quality manager on the topic of software quality.

As a milestone, I was able to experience what it feels like when a large organisation changes towards agility: I was there as a guide when the IT department of the Swiss Federal Railways switched to agile ways of working. After this milestone, I wanted to help other organisations to master the change towards more valuable work environments and products that inspire customers.

Since 2018 I have been working as a coach, trainer and facilitator in various consulting companies.

I have been a pioneer of the agile movement for many years. Here is an excerpt of my experience:

  • Flight level coach from start-up to traditional company or multinational corporation
  • Sparring partner and consultant for decision-makers in digital or agile transformations
  • Trainer and coach and mentor of managers in agile roles
  • Guest lecturer at the FHNW in the area of change processes
  • Talent scouting in the client company and development of internal agile communities
  • Accompaniment of hardware Scrum projects and innovation in product development
  • Establishment of Agile Communities in Switzerland with a total of more than 1000 members
  • Building an Agile Coaching Team in the context of a large company (Coaching, Training, Mentoring, Scrum, Kanban, Design Thinking, Lean Startup, Agile RE)
  • Accompanying teams at all levels in starting joint cooperation and introducing learning processes on the product/project as well as on cooperation in the process
  • Development of new thinking models and frameworks (Iteration Zero) that provide solutions to complex problems
