I started my career in 1987 as a programmer. In 1994 I entered the world of project management based on the RAD-methodology. Within this method I specialized myself in project management and facilitation.
In 1997 I switched from RAD to DSDM (anno 2011, DSDM is called Atern) as the fundament for my approach. Since then I have been change and project manager on numerous projects, facilitator in hundreds of sessions and coach for project managers and –teams.
I have been on the board of DSDM-Benelux for 3 years and I have been DSDM-assessor since 1997. Because of my level of knowledge and expertise in DSDM, I became one of the original signatories of the Agile Alliance in 2001.
I am also active since 1998 as assessor for professionals in facilitation known as CPF’s (Certified Professional Facilitator) all within the International Association for Facilitators (IAF). In my role, I have been active as assessoron numerous assessments all over the world (Canada, USA, Scandinavia, Slovenia, UK, Germany, etc.). In my role as facilitator, I am specialist on working with teams on their performance. I will handle issues like efficiency, effectiveness and also racism, cultural differences and managing today’s workload. In my work as a facilitator, I work in close relationship with and I am part of Lorensbergs (Gothenburg, Sweden), an organization with strict behavioral scientists.
For both DSDM/Atern and facilitation I have been or will be presenting at conferences on numerous times. Next to my work as consultant in ICT with PMtD, I have been working at the Rotterdam University for Professional Education since 1993 as teacher and coach related to Prince-2, DSDM, Facilitation, team performance and communication skills.
