Edele in wenigen Worten

Enthusiastic Agile and Lean Coach, with over 7 years experience. Supporting teams to inspect and adapt how they work together and helping them to deliver better products and services is what really drives me.

I use a blended approach, taking inspiration from both Agile and Lean mindsets to support the people I work with in the best way possible. I’m incredibly compassionate and work in a way for teams to realise that agile practices are something valuable for them, and not just something management have decided to do.

I really bring an energy to facilitating workshops, helping them to be as engaging and productive as possible. Some of the workshops I really enjoy facilitating include project kick-offs, value stream mapping, user story mapping and the various Agile and Scrum events.

I started off my career as a programmer before transitioning to a Scrum Master and Agile Coach role. Plus I’ve also worked as a Product Owner, so I completely relate to the challenges they face too.

I have coached many tech teams, but also finance and HR departments, and businesses that you wouldn’t usually expect to find agile - such as real estate agencies, insurance brokerages and even fitness centres! I believe every type of company can enhance their business agility, so if that sounds like you, please reach out to me so we can start our journey together.

August 2018 - Heute

I created my own sole-proprietorship to create short 10-15 minute animated videos to cover the concepts of agile and lean - without the jargon.

Since COVID-19 I have been focussing on freelancing, which has resulted in me shutting down the e-learning site as I simply don’t have time to keep producing new educational videos.
