Our Team

Oliver

My first contact with Agile was in 2003 where I worked as a software developer. I learned the advantages of short feedback loops and noticed how successful we had been.

I continued my journey in a web agency where I learned the limitations of classical project management. This is also where I was convinced that agility is also the best way to create amazing products.

People are at the center of my actions. How can we empower people to work in a way that is driven by meaning and value? I believe people are motivated to create great products. I help them build the environment they need to be creative and productive by helping people learn from each other. That's what agility is about: continuous learning.

Every day I try to end the day leaving the world a little bit better than it was yesterday. If we don't change the way we live it will have serious environmental consequences for the planet. This means we have to change today, and not wait until tomorrow.

Lea   

My first experience of being part of a collaborative and customer-oriented team was during my job as a bartender and shift leader at the age of 18. As I had always been driven by a curiosity toward culture, communication and change, I then decided to study languages, business and anthropology and took the opportunity to live on four different continents.

Soon after starting to work in the corporate world in the field of communication and marketing, I wanted to replicate my earlier experiences of collaboration, continuous improvement, and customer-focus in these much more complex working environments. Looking for ways to do this, I jumped into the world of agile and eventually trained to become a Design Thinking Coach and Scrum Master.

Today I support organisations and teams by creating a collaborative work culture, and by making impactful outcomes through agile ways of working. I act on the principles of human-centred design, that is, employing empathy and placing people at the centre of what we do, whether it is team members, customers or users. I love change and the opportunities come with it. That’s why I am a big fan of the inspect and adapt mindset of Scrum and have put it to the test myself many times.

Stephen

I first learned about teams, and how they work effectively when I was 18. I captained my local rugby team to victories in both the national league and the national cup and "scrummed" before I was a Scrum Master.

My career started in a call center for a national bank in Northern Ireland. I worked my way from being a call center agent to leading a team of 8 people. 2 years later, I took the opportunity to work as a personal account manager in the Channel Islands and learned how to surpass customer expectations by tailoring customers products to make their life better.

I loved my job in the bank, but decided I needed a greater challenge. I moved to Germany, studied for, and became an English teacher. I spent my time in companies learning about every kind of industry and teaching every kind of employee from shop floor worker to board level directors. It was here I learnt about Scrum.

I realized Scrum is what brought all the things I learnt about together in a framework that was easy to understand, but when implemented would deliver exceptional value. Developing self-organizing teams, focusing on things that have value, delivering finished work and most importantly being a servant leader.

After completing a full stack web development bootcamp and completing my Professional Scrum Master certification, I began my journey as a Scrum Master. At the same time sustainability became more important to me. Most people who know me would probably say they didn't think environmental concerns were one of the things that I get excited about. The truth is that in the past they would have been right. As I have got older, got married, got a dog I also realized how important it is to conserve the things we have. All it takes is a look at the news to see how bad a job we as a society are doing as acting as good stewards for our planet. That is why I'm proud to be at an organization that is part of the solution, and not the problem.

Jessica

I’m a people person. Helping people to overcome challenges is what drives me.

When I was younger, I gave private lessons to students. From a young age, I have always been passionate about taking on more responsibility, so that I could continually learn, grow and increase my self-confidence.

Progressing from teaching to coaching was a journey. I developed my skills as a coach after I graduated from university with a degree in economics and joined an international DIY retailer. It was here where I developed a passion for projects and the principles of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development. This is also where I honed my skills as an agile coach, helping to create an environment where people were able to get value by using agile principles and practices. This passion for people and agility is what I stand for. In addition, it is important for me to live sustainably, consciously and in a way that protects the environment. This is my contribution to the preservation of our environment.

I help organizations solve complex challenges such as building teams and developing products. Creating, increasing and improving value is what I love doing. I do this by focusing on outcomes over outputs.

Johannes

I’ve always been curious about how the world works. As a child, I took things apart just to see how they worked. Luckily for me, my parents always encouraged my curiosity.

I first learned to program computers in 1991. All it took was for my uncle to give me a handful of floppy disks about programming. 5 years later, I was developing business software and built my first commercial website.

In 2005 I graduated from law school and became a consultant for the pioneering digital consultancy Sapient. It was here I learned that agility was the answer to one of our most important questions: How do we help people in organizations deliver greater value? I soon became an agile coach for Sapient which brought together everything I enjoy about my job: business, complex challenges, and value for people.

After I completed my MBA in 2011, I took the next step in my journey and started my own business in 2013 with the aim of helping organizations turn complex challenges into sustainable solutions for their business, for people and for our environment. One of my first clients came to me with a project in crisis. We used Nexus to scale Scrum and delivered what was needed on time and within budget. The success of this Nexus project is detailed in a case study by Scrum.org.

Throughout my work, I see organizations do Agile to produce outputs instead of becoming agile to create valuable outcomes. That is why I made it my mission to help organizations, their teams and leaders to create amazing outcomes for their business, for people and for our planet.
