Agile in Belgium


Frederik is consultant at Cronos. Cronos is a networked company and consists out of a multitude of small companies specialized in specific technologies, software/hardware solutions, methodologies, etc. Cronos is an incubator for anyone with entrepreneurship to start his own business. For almost 10 years I have been active in projects mainly on the topic of information management, web and mobile applications.

I'd like to describe myself as a multi-disciplinary, cross-functional worker. I don't like specific “job titles”, the best fit would be “business” consultant, as I am mostly active to understand business needs and bridge the gap between business and any other stakeholders.

Frederik has university and post-university degrees in computer sciences, international business and project management.

Frederik is certified Scrum Master and Product Owner. Frederik enjoys educating and training people on “everything agile”. Frederik is determined to make the world a little bit better, by bringing value back in product and software development. I have great interest and passion for lean management (lean way of thinking), principles of Lean Startup (and e.g. Lean User eXperience). I also enjoy serious games, innovation games and other games / simulations to illustrate and to drive learning for agile and lean principles.

You can meet me at conferences (XP Days Benelux, Agile Tour Brussels) or events (Lean Coffee, Agile Belgium meetups, Agile Consortium Belgium) mainly in Belgium or the Netherlands. Contact me via Linkedin or Twitter. Visit my personal blog and get in touch!
