Ben Linders interviewed us on the book on InfoQ.

„[This is] a very important book. My hopes are that it will be the missing link between agile for teams and the flexible, adaptive and humane organisations we want to build. It’s a great book. Thanks for writing it!“

~ Sandy Mamoli, author of Creating Great Teams

The focus of my work is to: Enabling Agile Development on the Organizational Level.

I am an experienced independent coach, consultant, and trainer from Braunschweig, Germany, for agile software development. My know-how in agile processes is based on over twenty years experience in project and product development. I am an experienced agile process coach and trainer. I have worked with teams using agile processes successfully on medium-sized to large mission-critical projects. As a coach I’m focusing on the process as well as on the quality and on soft factors like communication. I work also as a facilitator for retrospectives. With retrospectives I help my clients to improve their way of working.

I have presented work in my main areas at different European and American conferences. I am a member of the AgileAlliance (I have served the board of directors from 2003-2007), a supporter of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development and a member of several Interest Groups. I am a partner of IT communication.

Retrospectives for Organizational Change available on Leanpub and as hard copy!

I published my findings on Retrospectives for Organizational Change. The co-author of Fearless Change, Linda Rising praised it as:

„Of course, there are other books on the protocols and exercises for retrospectives, but these don’t share share the ‚whys’of this important ritual. What Jutta has done for us is provide real experience reports that show how useful retrospectives can be and share her research around using retrospectives to lead change in an organization. Get this book and read it!“

Diving for Hidden Treasures

Together with Johanna Rothman I published Diving for Hidden Treasures.

„Have you ever wondered about how your projects become late? Are you worried that your projects become later and you don’t know why?“

The first book I published is called Agile Software Development in the Large, published by Dorset House (find the ebook here). I published my experiences with global agile teams in Agile Software Development with Distributed Teams: Staying Agile in a Global World, by Dorset House (find the ebook here). There are free sample chapters available – if you are interested in challenges in large or in global settings.
