About Me
About Me
So you want to know more about me? As you wish!
I was born in snowy Siberia in the 20th century. Few interesting facts about this place: temperatures can reach +40 °C (104 °F) in the summer and drop to −45 °C (−49 °F) in the winter; and, on average, there are over 300 sunny days a year.

Now I live in Berlin and work all over the world. This situation gives me a unique opportunity to absorb different cultural aspects not only on professional but on a personal level as well.

I started my career in the 21st century. I have worked in a wide variety of companies holding a wide variety of positions: from garage startups to "bloody" enterprises; from a manual QA to a C-level position. So I got a unique opportunity to observe how value could be differently delivered or NOT delivered.

Agile
My Agile journey started back in 2004 when I did my first Scrum transformation: yet another story of yet another traditional manager with a failing project. I still sometimes see Microsoft Project in my nightmares. Since then I've been continuously getting confirmations that individuals and interactions are definitely more important than processes and tools.

So guess what! In 2010 I realized that I got bored with my career building and new shiny titles obtaining. And that was the point when I started to help people and organizations. I became a trainer, coach, mentor, facilitator and that naughty guy who shakes the status quo.

Since then I've:
- helped many practitioners to sharpen their Agile skills.
- helped many teams to become legendary.
- consulted a wide variety of organizations across all layers.
- trained hundreds of people through public & in-house classes.
