PROFILE

SUMMARY

I'm an independant Agile and DevOps coach and trainer with a strong background in Testing and Quality.

Managing Consultant Agile & DevOps with a strong background in Testing and Quality. Excellent communicator and true bridge builder between teams and departments.

I believe that as a society, we're on the edge of a major shift in how our work is organized and organizations are managed. Traditional lineair, top down management control is no longer effective, as people want to be valued, inspired and empowered. Only then organizations can utilize the potential of their workers.
The demands of the customer driven market are high - complete and integral designed products are essential. To enable this, cross-functional teams need to be empowered by management.

I encourage people, teams and organizations (managers included!) to selforganise, embrace change and focus on delevering value to customers.


I am licensed trainer for Management 3.0 trainings through my company NuovaDelta. Check out the website www.management30.nl for the latest info!

Specialties: - Team and organizational performance through self organisation
- Agile for management (Management 3.0)
- Agile testing
