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!

I had a chance to work with Zuzi for about 3 month when she was assigned to coach me and my colleagues in Agile ways. During that short time she proved herself a skilled agilist and a patient, empathic and energetic Coach. Through her persistent and professional coaching she was able not only to educate and mentor whole teams, but also empower Scrum Masters and myself to continue in Agile transformation with passion and drive.

"I highly recomend Zuzana as Agile coach. Zuzana came to our company to help us resolve our strugles with Scrum implementation. She helped the team to find what is our problem and formulate short plan to get over it. She, as all really great coaches, let us to realize our problem all by ourselves, which greatly increased the chance the team will live the solution."

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."

“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?
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.”

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.
