PROFILE

SUMMARY

I am on a mission to help build "new organisations". Organisations established to make a positive change, built on the basis of partnership, run effectively and contributing to a better world by investing responsibly and validating every step they take.
There is a responsible way to start and build such organisations and I can help you if you share the dream.
I am interested in continuous learning, improvement and innovation, stewardship, lean startup and lean analytics practices, mindfulness, non-violent communication, customer development, theory of constraints, agile software development practices, systems thinking and right-shifting.
I help organisations, teams and individuals discover how to do better and learn some of the practices listed above. I also experiment with LeaveWizard and Free Leave Planner and help the editorial board of Agile Record.
In the past I have helped Agile South Coast and Scrum Fest with organising events and meet-ups.
