Why Agile and Cycling?

I have been an Agile Coach for many years and also a passionate cycling athlete. Cycling is one of the most complex and challenging discipline in sports. In the business world it’s quite the same. A lot of business enterprises struggle to manage complex situations and find it hard to adapt.

To master challenging endeavors, whether in cycling or business, we need a vision, a strategy and motivation. To reach our goals we have to dream, act, measure, inspect, learn and adapt, but also to lead. Agile mindset and methods are predestined to overcome these challenges.

I have a little cycling team. It consists of a rider (it’s me), a coach (it’s me) and a mechanic (it’s also me). In my blog I tell some stories about cycling challenges. My agile mindset helps me to deal with unforeseeable events during preparations (training), but also during the cycling activities (racing or touring). I have had to find ways to adapt to new situations.

I help and support with the challenges of our time: The world is characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA).

Both companies and individuals are looking for solutions to these problems.

With deep and practical experience using Agile Methodologies I design executable strategies to manage risks while securing business value.

I believe that the strengths of every organization lie in its diversity and that dealing effectively and efficiently with complex challenges requires a careful balance between data-driven analysis and interpersonal relationships.

My approach combines evidence-based methods with agile adaptability and a deep understanding of complex systems to ensure sustainable success. I attach great importance to respectful and appreciative interactions because I am convinced that motivated and committed teams are the driving force behind every successful organization.
