“We thought we were hiring Michael to teach our staff how to 'do agile' but he
taught us so much more than that.
We started with an intense but stunningly effective Temenos session for the
management team that was crucial to building the trust and connection we
needed to truly function as a team.
He facilitated a series of organizational development workshops that helped us
understand and build towards a cultural and organizational context where
agility can thrive and be sustained.
Using a dynamic and highly engaging 'teach by modeling' style throughout,
Michael helped us examine our team's values, mission and ambitions, adjust
our structure and move us towards an empowered model of decision-making.
When we finally rolled out Scrum and Kanban training, we were well positioned
to support successful adoption.
Michael is a master facilitator who applied expertise, experience, compassion
and courage to navigate complex problems with us and put us on the
path to transformation.”
