What experience do you have?
I have experienced several aspects of business life, leadership, teamwork and of war. Before going into the IT world in 2006 I used the same agile/Lean strategies and principles as an F16 fighter pilot. Watch this talk about agile at scale from a fighter pilots perspective.
I have worked as a leader and coached lean and agile in several different business contexts. I’ve worked mostly with medium and large organizations, but also own my own agile startups (the company which builds the next F16 simulators for the Danish Airforce). My strengths are in Agile & Lean leadership, people, and change. I’m a developer as well, so I have empathy for the technical perspectives, opportunities, and constraints of Agile and Lean.
The experiences I treasure the most have in common that they were hard to accomplish, I was part of a great team and we succeeded making a positive difference which we felt was significant.
