I am a project manager, scrum master and agile coach but more than anything else I am passionate about agile. I see too many companies and teams follow the book, do the ceremonies and follow the rules. Agile frameworks are not a goal, but tools to help deliver value.

I enjoy learning and share what I have learned. This site includes original blogs and blogs that I have published in various locations.

How can we help each other improve? Let’s talk.  For more information on what I am doing now and have done in the past see my Resume Summary.

Why Dutch Houseboat?

After the Second World War, old transport vessels became the answer for the housing shortage in Amsterdam. Living on a boat might have been uncomfortable, but it was still cheap and you’d at least have a detached house which you could place anywhere you liked.*  A houseboat was an out of the box first iteration toward better housing.

Sounds kind of agile.

I grew up in Amsterdam and have always liked houseboats.
