Ralph van Roosmalen

I believe people make all the difference in every project. The people’s skills, how they work together and how they feel. Scrum, Kanban, eXtreme Programming, Management 3.0, these are just tools or frameworks that exist to help people.

I have been working in IT since 1997. I had different roles: from developer, tester, Scrum Master, Agile coach, lead, manager to VP. What I always liked most, however, was working with people to improve the processes and the environments they work in. I am an active member of the Agile community and share my insights and knowledge by speaking at conferences and writing blog posts. I am specialized in recruitment, building (distributed) agile software teams and management 3.0.

In 2015 I decided to start my own company, Agile Strides. Agile Strides helps people and organizations to make a next step and it helps them to become happier in their work. For example, this can be done by improving how the teams work together, by improving the software development process, by helping people to become more engaged or by teaching them how to improve their own environment.

When people make a step and they inspect where they are and adapt before they make a next step, I believe people will constantly improve themselves. This is the Agile mindset.

I help people and organizations with workshops and coaching them in their daily activities on the job. Workshops and coaching are always done in an innovative and fun way, work should be fun!
