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.
