Rob van Lanen
Having spent over ten years in software development, I have seen many different organizations and teams. When I started reading about Agile, I got hooked. I started implementing Scrum and eXtreme Programming practices in 2005 and I never went back to traditional software development.
I have seen and participated in traditional software development. Waterfall teams sliding through the mud and in the end not delivering at all. I have seen Agile gone wrong and even participated in the demise of these projects. However, I learned a lot from these experiences. I have also participated in successful Scrum teams and loved it. I have seen teams work hard to overcome all impediments that the implementation of Scrum made clear to them.
After several years of experience as Developer, Scrum Master, Product Owner and Development Manager, I want to share my lessons with the community. It is my passion to teach the agile mindset and help teams to build great products that end-users love. Guiding dedicated professionals to reach this goal is what makes me get up in the morning.
