Voor de start van het nieuwe jaar sta ik open voor opdrachten als RTE, Agile Coach en SM in en rondom Amsterdam.


My mission is to build autonomous and high performing teams. I believe in lean agile organizations with accelerated business value as result. Continuous development is a foregone conclusion for me. Both at individual, team and process level. I will bring order to chaos by applying structured implementation of proven techniques and by making people think in order to make them move. In my teams you see the growth of the people and achieved team goals. Doing the right things that contribute to the higher goal. From a helicopter view I keep an overview and provide boundaries. I use scrum in combination with kanban, scaling frameworks, agile values, agile principles and lean principles. I am clear to my team and trust them to give substance to how they want to achieve the objectives. And I encourage collaboration and take responsibility by being an example in this. In these roles I can take the stance needed. Servant leader, facilitator, coach, manager, mentor, teacher, impediment remover and or change agent. As a coach I guide fellow team members with various issues related to career; in the current function or a next step. I can empathize with the person, but I am also clear and dare to confront the coachee with himself. Because of the safe environment that I create, colleagues open up to me. I get happiness from #BizDevOps #CI/CD #HighPerformanceTeams #BusinessAgility #BDD #TDD #LiberatingStructures #PersonalGrowth #IntrensicMotivation #RuthlessImprovemt #SystemsThinking Loves challenges as Scrum Master, Agile Coach, RTE, Product Owner or any surprisingly nice job that will help me in my mission.
