Highlights from a successful 2016

It’s been a great 2016 for agile42

The end of a calendar year is always a moment when we look back to gather new energy for the upcoming months: it’s been a great year and agile42 has been chosen as Winners at Red Herring Top 100 Europe 2016 and listed in the TOP 500 Fastest Growing Companies in Germany in the survey prepared by FOCUS magazine!

We worked with fantastic, inspiring and challenging clients but our greatest delight has been the growth of our team to better accommodate projects at all latitudes and the ever changing environment in the Agile world.

Andrea Tomasini, Bent Myllerup and Peter Hundermark have been approved as Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Educators, new program from Scrum Alliance. Joanne Perold has joined the ranks of CST (Certified Scrum Trainers), while Gregory Keegan and Konrad Pogorzala have been confirmed Certified Team Coaches, first ones in Europe. Gaetano Mazzanti has been approved as Accredited Kanban Trainer (AKT) and Dave Sharrock has attained SPC4 as SAFe Program Consultant.

In Europe we welcomed as new coaches Noel Viehmeyer, Javier Pérez, Russell Hill and Garbrand van der Molen. In North America Sam Lipson, Lukas Klose, Christopher Trudeau, Atul Khanapure, Marius de Beer, together with Client Relationship Manager Burt Hopkins and Office Team Member Suzanne Daly. Stefano Rago from our sister company Agilo Software has joined the group of trainers for specialized technical classes at selected clients.

And from January 2017 we will add to our South African team Mariet Visser, an experienced coach and a keen observer, always looking for new ways to optimise the system and influence both the people & the process. Read more on our blog.

Looking forward to another great year together!
