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 Company-wide Agility and (social, economic & environmental) Sustainability even in Large & Distributed Organizations.

I work as an independent coach, consultant, trainer, speaker, and author from Braunschweig, Germany. My know-how in agile processes is based on over twenty years of 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 the soft factors. I work also as a facilitator for retrospectives and help my clients this way to improve their way of working.

I have recently co-created an assessment for (agile) teams to gauge the environmental, social, and economic impact of their products and services. Besides that, I have published my experience in various books, having pair-written the most recent one with John Buck on Company-wide Agility with Beyond Budgeting, Open Space & Sociocracy (dubbed BOSSA nova).

I am a member of the AgileAlliance (having served the board from 2003 to 2007) and have recently founded the “Agile Sustainability Initiative” which aims at increasing the sustainability awareness of the Agile community’s possibilities to make a difference. I am a member of the program committee of many different American, Asian, and European conferences, where I have presented my work. I hold an M.A. in Business Coaching & Change Management, a Dipl.Eng. (MSc.) in product engineering, and am trained as a pollution control commissioner on ecological environmentalism.

My recent Toots!

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.
