About me

Wolfgang has led product and technology organizations over the last 25 years. He evolved from co-founder of a start-up company to executive leader at some of the leading global tech companies such as IBM, Microsoft, and SAP, and some midsize companies. In these positions, he has taken on the challenge to act as a change agent when he drove significant product innovation and quality improvements time and again. In his most recent position, he has been leading the Agile transformation at HERE Technologies as VP Business Agility. Over the past 12 years, he developed a strong passion for Lean and Agile methods, principles, and mindset. He is determined to continue to learn and improve his personal agility while helping other individuals and organizations benefit from his experiences.
