Biography

I am Optimus Prime of the agiletransformer.com team of Agile experts. My focus in the team is mixing experience and knowledge from the past (traditional IT Management, ITIL, Project Management) with contemporary approaches such as Agile, Scrum, Lean, Kanban. Worked for large telecoms and as CIO for a global retail chain, but now am bringing complementary teams together as a serial entrepreneur. In addition to agile transformations am managing an outstaffing company itsmdelivery.com and facilitating the Latvian-Ukrainian joint venture UAV.Tools to provide drone services in the B2B sector. http://www.linkedin.com/in/vivanov Sometimes am consultant and trainer, regularly attending international Agile (and not only) conferences as a speaker with focus on combining traditional IT Management (am ITIL Expert), Project Management (am IPMA assessor) and contemporary approaches (Agile, Lean, Kanban etc). Prefer interactive workshops in general and agile games in particular. Have created several agile games with which have traveled to >10 country conferences and shared these with global community. E.g. "Creating children book with Scrum" and "Enterprise Agile Pasta" haven't became as popular as Lego4Scrum, but are known and used by practitioners. Board member at IPMA in Latvia (LNPVA), teaching "Contemporary tools and approaches" for masters in Project Management and Erasmus students of International Business in RISEBA (Riga International School of Economics and Business Administration). Basically it's a crash course on Agile, Scrum, Lean and Kanban with focus on practical work with software tools. Have a degree in Computer Sciences and Executive MBA from Stockholm School of Economics. Worked for large telecoms and as CIO for a global retail chain. 2 years from now have co-founded a company agiletransformer.com which united best Agile practitioners (e.g. Jānis Lāma, Ivo Pekšēns, Leonids Uljankins, Andrejs Čirkovs etc) and we serve regional companies as Agile Coaches and Trainers. Some of the customer cases are shared publicly here https://www.facebook.com/agiletransformer/ and significant part is not shown publicly due to NDA.
