About the Author
You could say I’m into IT for three decades – that is, if geek kid pushing BASIC code into his Atari counts.
I struggled when choosing college, so I needed to make a wise choice. I flipped a coin and ended up being programmer. Then manager. Then the Agile began and (following achieving mastery over two days of training) I became the worst Scrum Master I’ve ever seen. Then (hopefully) a somewhat better Product Owner. Then Agile Coach.
Now I run a small strategic consulting agency, focused on actual business outcomes, not means to an end.
I’m an introvert, yet I love to go on stage and boldly challenge all the misconceptions, myths, and legends that arose around Agile on numerous conferences.
I’m a philosopher of stoicism and essentialism. By pure coincidence (or not), these two streams of thought actually combine to create what I mean by Agile.
I lived in seventeen different places, before deciding to settle in Wroclaw, Poland. For now.
As a passionate petrol-head, I believe jogging to be reserved for lunatics only – which explains why you can see me jogging a few early mornings each week.
