Agile Coach, tryZone

Thomas's professional bio / interests

I started with Project Management in the mid 90ties and a round 2008/2009 I turned to agile after a couple of attempts to implement project models and working as a program manager in an organisation implementing CMMI with management by baseball bat. Having worked as a freelance Scrum Master and Product Owner for 7 - 8 years I now primarily do agile training and coaching in organsitions ranging from start-ups to large public sector bureaucracies. I found out some years ago that although I am good at helping teams work in agile bubbles in the organisation, it doesn't really do much good overall, so I turned my attention to management and leadership. Apart from agile, I work with concepts like the Human Element (R) and Radical Collaboration (R). I am one of five partners in tryZone. We are based in Denmark.
