I am passionate about Agile and especially experienced in Scrum. I teach Scrum to teams, management, Product Owners and Scrum Masters and help companies in their adoption and use of Agile practices. I like to use Scrum to help teams and organizations to get so much better results that what you typically see: achieve higher customer satisfaction, higher productivity, better predictability, more flexibility, better quality and more fun and excitement!
I am a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) and Certified Scrum Coach (CSC). In 1997 I graduated cum laude in Computer Science at the VU University in Amsterdam. My experience with Agile dates back to 2001, when I worked at OTI on Eclipse related projects.
