I am passionate about helping customers get as much value as possible from IT development. I use experience gained from 23 years of consulting customers in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. I have always based my work on an agile mindset (even if the name agile was not coined when I started). My experience from having held almost every role there is in software development gives me a unique ability to maximize the chances of success in a project. This experience also makes me immune to religious tendencies. I have sometimes removed agile practices in situations where they have not worked. I am a certified PMP (Project management professional) which enables me to work together with people who are not into agile.
I help customers succeed with software development projects. To do that I perform a range of services from mentoring to taking an operational role in a project such as becoming the product owner or project manager. When I work with development teams I prefer to see myself as a catalyst instead of as a manager or scrum master. The important thing is to help people solve problems.
The projects I have been involved with have always been able to deliver working solutions that have successfully been put into production.
Complex replacement projects
I have worked with everything from modern web-based solutions to complex legacy back-end systems in Cobol. An agile approach to replacement projects is one of my specialities. I have worked in a diverse range of business areas: banking, logistics, health care, administration, telecom and more.
Courses and mentoring
I also hold courses and mentor in these areas:
- Agile project management
- Release strategy and replacement projects
- The Product owner role
- Systems thinking in software development
- Procurement with PS2000 or other agile contracts
