Currently working for van Lanschot Kempen, a bank in Amsterdam as a Scrum master. Helping the teams to work smarter and easier together. Also talking and teaching about Agile methods and the mindset that is required.
Currently learning about leading in Agile environments by learning change management skills. Inspired by the book of Shirine Moerkerken
I started working as a physics teacher for 7 years, went freelancing for 7 years as a frontend developer / business analyst / technical consultant and after experiencing Agile in multiple environments, took the process-lead at BlueMango (Eindhoven) in 2013. I’ve been focussing on Agile and mainly Scrum since then. I’ve worked for large (Bol, Alliander, Thieme, Kennisnet, DPG media, Knab, Van Lanschot Kempen) and small (Digischool, Sportcompressiekousen, Feestkleding365, Studiekring) companies in various roles and always on “the front end of things”.
I think the combination of my education as a teacher, experience as a developer and knowledge about Agile adds the value to the company I work for.
Currently building the tool www.tafeljog.nl as a side-project. It’s an advertisement free tool to learn your tables of multiplication, while jogging, bending, turning, shouting. (English version here)
At the moment, I like this quote a lot:
Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
