Dev Team Leading

I’ve been responsible for vast variety of teams of software developers, creative professionals and industry specialists. My certified project management skills and lean business development experience make projects to achieve goals. My approach is to build self-managing teams that are capable to improve their own performance. It is enabled by transparent processes, regular inspections and constant adaptation. Recent years I’ve been specializing into distributed team management, outsourced teams and agile methodologies.

Agile & Scrum Coaching

Agile development is easy to learn, but difficult to master. That’s why even the best agile teams invest regularly on team coaching. Focused consulting have a measurable impact on software development team’s productivity. It’s not only about processes or workflows. Instead, developers must get a positive attitude towards mutually agreed teamwork practices. This kind of team spirit can be enabled by sharing real life examples and development knowhow.
