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.

Zuzana 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.
Zuzka 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.
I 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!
