Agile, Lean, Project and change management are my major areas of interest. My general approach is to focus on the people involved, and help them succeed by exploring areas of improvement and continuously finding solution that work better. This same principle is also applied when dealing with whole organisations, where I also use my insight and expertise in Agile and Lean to find bottlenecks and suitable solutions.
Another important principle I follow, is based on the recognition how critical a shared purpose is to an organisation. I believe, that the road to success for any company is to connect its purpose with what the organisation does and how it does it. Only then does the company become truly focused, and deliver what the customer truly needs. Furthermore, such shared focus can also potentially unlock the gift of creativity from the people involved in the organisation, leading to more innovative thinking in the organisation.
If you believe that this is what your organisation needs, don't hesitate to contact me.
