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 - Medtronic

Reference - MedtronicMedtronicZuzana managed the Czech portion of a large software development project to convert Medtronic implantable cardiac device applications to run under Windows XPe. Her team worked very closely with a similar team of Medtronic engineers based in Minnesota, USA for almost three years . I believe all would agree that it could not have been successful without the outstanding contribution of the team. Zuzana's coordination, planning, and communication skills were key to the success of her team.
An essential component of this cooperative effort was the use of Agile principles to enable the two teams - seven time zones apart - to work together effectively.

"Mediation Shared Services supports local operators of Deutsche Telekom AG by billing mediation system. Zuzana as a consultant supports MSS's transition from the traditional waterfall approach to Scrum.

The implementation of the main Srum principles - self-managed teams, incremental development through regular sprints, and prevention of multitasking - helped substantially to cut costs, shorten time to market and made changes to agreed SW development plans of our department much more easier."
