I help companies and individuals to be more successful.

Teaching teams and their managers how to be more efficient, how to provide better quality and how to communicate and organize teams so that people have fun, they are motivated and have high commitment

I help them to find out how to handle customer relationship so that the customer satisfaction is much higher than it used to be.

Agile is not only a new methodology, it's a culture which is hard to implement if you haven't experienced it yourself. I had implemented it many times already, in many different companies, so I can help you to implement it in your environment, the way you need it.

Reference - Acision

Radomír AntošZuzka helped us in transforming Acision R&D CZ from a traditionally waterfall/corporate driven R&D organisation into very efficient agile organisation. We hired Zuzka to help us with initial assessment and trial with one project/product. The cooperation was extended and together we transformed all the other product teams successfully. 

AcisionI liked Zuzka for her ability to explain the agile principles, methodology, key aspects of important roles in SCRUM. She initiated a mindset change of key individuals in the R&D organisation and helped them to inject the same to their teams. 

Zuzka is mastering the transformations towards Agile/SCRUM and is able to coach various levels and roles in the multinational organisation.

I would highly recommend Zuzka to anyone who wants to transform his organisation towards agile/lean and wants to do it in great and often informal atmosphere.

Zuzko, thank you a lot!

Radomír Antoš, VP Engineering, Acision

“At our company, Kros, we have kept an eye on agile methods and especially Scrum for a long time, but nobody really believed that it could actually work. How can we just let people choose what they want to do and how much they want to do! How are we going to plan? (To tell the truth our planning has been very unreliable up till now.) How are we going to know if people are working enough?

Kros

In the end we told ourselves we would give it a try, and after an initial partial success, we had all the developing teams involved in the development in accordance with Scrum.  Zuzka helped us at our regular meetings by giving feedback and suggestions for further improvements of our work. Today, after nearly a year of operation, there is still room for improvement, but we know for sure that we managed to solve three major problems that we had had - the quality of products delivered to customers, scheduling and estimating the range of tasks that can be accomplished in a given period, and last but not least, we have supported our teams, for which the scrum was a new incentive to improve their work, the work conditions, mutual relations and gave them satisfaction from success.
