About the Author

Dr. Barbara Schiller
Dr. Barbara Schiller

Dr. Barbara Schiller is Senior Agile Coach and Scrum Master at ERNI Deutschland Consulting Agency.

She worked in the Health Insurance sector, in the Automotive and the Med Tech industry. 

Dr. Schiller graduated in Social Science with a focus on System Theory (Luhmann) and acquired a profound additional education in Systemic Coaching and Organizational Development.

Based on this background she developed a concept of Agile Leadership, which can be regarded as a full program on agile practices to transform a company and to guide it into agile alignment. 

This program is successfully tested with customers who regard it as a very valuable tool for evaluating their agile setup and activities.

The unique value of this program is the ability to analyze and rate an enterprise on its level of agile elignment by 4 Agile Key Success Factors. 

These Key Success Factors point to the role of Management and Leadership within the company and the role of its infrastructure and service functions. 

As a result, customers are provided with OKRs to measure the status of their enterprise - not only by watching the output of agile teams, but also by measuring the ability of the whole company to align itself, to react swiftly on changes, to steer motivation and relationships - and last but not least to communicate the entire process effectively all the way through.
