Hi, nice to meet you!
I'm an Agile Coach, Trainer and Speaker. I’m first Certified Scrum Trainer, CST from Poland. In 2010 I started ProCognita to help IT organizations in their quest for Agile Culture as an independent coach and trainer. I lead my training in a light and original way with a large dose of humor. As a coach I focus primarily on aspects of human behavior, observing both individuals and the dynamics of the group. My customers vary from small start-ups to large international corporations. Their businesses vary as well, from financial services, insurance, SAP services, games to telecommunication. I’m continuously expanding my knowledge by attending conferences, local group meetings and courses. I'm a Project Management Professional, PMP, Management 3.0 Facilitator and Certified LeSS Practictioner.
I’m actively engaged in the Agile community. On international conferences and local groups I’m giving lectures and leading workshops. I also support and organize Agile and Lean events and conferences in Europe. In 2012 I co-founded a local Agile and Lean group - ALE Krakow, the second largest Agile community in Poland, with over thousand members.
Any free time I spend with my family, traveling, and photographing.
Let me know if you’re in Poland, or planning to come here and willing to share your knowledge with our community. And if you’re looking for help, please feel free to contact me.
Articles I've written
Teaching Relative Estimation by Throwing a Cat
I'm a big fan of relative measurements in software development. However, when teaching this idea, I've noticed that many developers who are used to estimating work in hours or days find it difficult to switch to using story points as the relative measurement of complexity. . . .
Steps Toward Leadership
I’ve realized that over the years I went through four important steps that helped me grow, but they also helped me develop other leaders. I’d like to share these steps with you, hoping they’ll be useful in identifying where you stand and where you want to go.
