About Astrid

Astrid started her Scrum and Agile journey as a frontend developer in several teams. By then she was already most intrigued about the “human” factor in development and high performing teams. She continued her career as an Agile Consultant, mainly focusing on agile in infrastructure and non-IT. Since two years she has taken a deep dive in the wellbeing of humans from different perspectives; leadership, HR, personal agility and of course the perks agile and scrum could give in those areas.

About Martijn

Martijn's mission is to connect people, processes and technology, putting people at the heart of the
business. As an Agile Coach and trainer he helps clients effectively apply agile ways of working to
increase business value, employee happiness and customer satisfaction. He's been passionate about agile product development ever since I was asked to head the
development of a technologically advanced track and trace service used in hospitals. As a Product Owner he learned the benefits Scrum offered in controlling complexity and driving continuous improvement.
