We 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. I support them in changing their traditional processes to Agile, or implementing Scrum and Kanban.

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.
