Services

Currently, I provide speaking and consultancy services.

Speaking

Sharing knowledge and experiences about building tech-products, -teams and -culture is something I'm very excited about. That's why I regularly speak at public and private events around the world.

If you have an upcoming meetup, conference, hackathon or a company internal event and would like me to speak, reach out, I would love to know more about it.

For company internal events it is very beneficial to personalize my talks to your unique situation and current challenges. I consider a 2 - 3 day visit prior to the event necessary to get to know product teams and some key people (team leads, tech management, HR, etc) to achieve this. I'm definitely looking forward to meet you and your teams.

For Product/Development Teams

Highly productive and agile development teams are awesome to work in. Getting there is another story. A lot of product teams are distracted by details. Maybe there are detached from their userbase, are stuck on an important technology decision or just introduced a new technology that is temporarily slowing down the teams performance.

I provide on-site consultancy for teams that would like to improve their codebase, performance and culture. Enabling a team to iterate quickly, getting new releases out fast, reliably and securely to exceed the teams success metrics is my goal. We will touch on many topics including:

  • Current stack and deployment pipeline
  • Codebase, best practices and collaboration workflow
  • Product features and user demands
  • team setup, ownership and culture
  • Troubleshooting and maintenance
  • Team performance and purpose
  • and all your teams obstacles

Building a highly motivated and productive software team is exciting and such a teams results will outperform all previous efforts. It is an awesome work environment for all team members and a huge asset for its stackeholders.

Consultancy engagements vary from 2 days of high level discussions to weeks of detailed planning and can also extend to periodic visits to review implementation or assist with tricky roadblocks.

For Tech Managers

Today's corporations usually have some form of digital transformation program with changes to everything from leadership style and culture to processes and corporate IT. It is an especially challenging task to build up an innovative software development team inside a traditional corporate environment. My consulting services aim to help companies achieve exactly that.

Being a software developer myself, I have felt the pain of working at multiple large corporations before moving into management to push the necessary change for software teams to thrive in today's agile and digital world. I interviewed over 200 developers in the past year, hiring well over 60 and helped to shape teams spanning multiple locations and departments.

I provide on-site consultancy for companies that would like to improve existing or build up new modern, agile software development teams. We will look at the existing organization and work out roadmaps and strategies to meet your targets with special attention to topics like:

  • Recruiting tech talent
  • Keeping tech talent
  • Creating a product mindset
  • Cultural impact
  • Bottom-up changes by developers / product teams
  • Team performance and purpose
  • Integration into corporate environment
  • Requirements for corporate IT
  • Processes to watch out for
  • and more

Creating a truly innovative and agile product-creation team requires more than a fancy office with motivational copy on the walls. It's a challenging and exciting process that will finally unlock the huge untapped potential that is sleeping inside your corporations.

Consultancy engagements vary from 2 days of high level discussions to weeks of detailed planning and can also extend to periodic visits to review implementation or assist with tricky roadblocks.
