After my engineering studies, I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science for research in the field of self-organizing systems. Due to their interactive nature, self-organizing systems are a lot more adaptive to changing environments. I worked several years as a freelance software architect.
So why did I end up in Agile coaching?
Nowadays changing environments push human organizations into becoming more adaptive too. And similar to self-organizing systems, Agile approaches rely heavily on interaction and self-organization as patterns to improve adaptability.
This analogy explains my passion for agile. I've been involved in several large-scale agile transformations where I strive to increase self-organization by fostering openness and interaction among people. This leads to organizations becoming more adaptive. And to interacting people having more fun too.
