About me

I am a manager and integral business coach with over fifteen years of experience in agile software development. I admire to create and participate in a highly productive and innovative working environment with the ongoing development of methods, processes and organisation inside and around my team. While doing that I am focused on working solution-oriented, prudent and always respectful with my environment without losing the sight of the targets. As a coach, I am having a holistic view on humans and their interaction with their surrounding.
