Anton Vanhoucke

Innovation Manager
& Agile Coach

Innovating can be tough. Maybe there are enough ideas, but your organisation lacks focus. My innovation management experience can be of value. Perhaps you’re in an Agile Transition, and it doesn’t bring the expected results. In that case, an Agile Coach is what you need.

Great Innovation comes from great teams. Not from ideas on sticky notes.

I combine Innovation Management with an in-depth knowledge of Agile Coaching. That’s because I believe teams deliver results, not projects. Success comes from effectively motivating and empowering teams. The combination of Agile and Innovation Management has proven to accelerate both company growth and organizational agility. Is your interested piqued? Let’s discuss the added value of Agile Growth for you and your teams!

About me

Innovation Strategist

Anton has a lot of experience with successful innovations. He brings a different mindset and a strong customer orientation to the team. Anton’s expertise in digital media and communication reinforces the team’s success. He has always been fascinated by one central question:

Why do people do what they do?

This question is interesting on many levels. It has to do with team performance because some routines are more productive than others. It has to do with organisational excellence because behaviour drives processes and culture. And finally, it has to do with innovation because customer behaviour is a telltale of success.

Anton’s motivation is to help people rise above themselves. Personal growth makes everyone happier and more productive in teams. A positive impact on the world is an essential part of this. That’s why Anton carefully chooses his clients.

Voor oplossen van complexe (chaotische) problemen werken meer controle en strakke processen maar matig. In tegendeel: strakkere controle leidt uiteindelijk tot het verlies van grip. Het wordt eerder krampachtig dan soepel en beheerst. Je kan het vergelijken met fietsen. 🚴 Als je het stuur niet soepel vasthoudt val je om. Ik ga Agile vanaf nu vertalen met 'soepel'.
Op 6 april start ik met een training over hoe je met deze mindset roadmaps en jaarplannen kan maken. https://buff.ly/2OSwa3D Interessant?

Confused with #scrum if it comes to the level of detail in a #sprintreview? With how much detail should you discuss the work? Remember that the #goal of the sprint review is to figure out how the team can add the most #value, in light of what has been done. It's about looking at the level of finishing. Is it good enough? Is the rest of the #agile plan good enough? It's not about brainstorming ideas or doing the actual creative work.

Vroeger vond ik vergaderingen stom. Ik wilde liever dingen doen, van achter mijn laptop. Nu verlang ik naar lekker ouderwets vergaderen. Met echte mensen. Aan een tafel een zo.
