Innovation Manager
& Agile Coach

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

Let’s discuss the added value of Agile Growth for you and your teams!

Holacracy is said to be improving on Scrum, Agile and Getting Things Done. It's supposed to make any team run better by continuously evolving the roles in the team to better fit the work.
