An experienced Lean coach and agile trainer with an extensive background in leadership, management and learning and development. He currently supports the National Police in their agile transformation within the Information Services department where he scaled agile based on LeSS principles. He is passionate about helping people to get the best out of themselves, to learn them how they can generate ideas in line with the strategy and execute them accordingly.

He is an organizer who keeps track of goals, results and the ways to achieve them. Observation, reflection and inspiration are important tools to simplify complex problems, and continuous small improvements are used to quickly adapt to business changes.
