Olaf has a sharp creative mind and a positive mindset enabling him to find surprising and efficient solutions to challenges. He has a deep toolbox within agile methods, and is a very proficient in training, facilitation and coaching of teams and individuals in agile methods. With his warm and empathic attitude he is approachable, and people around naturally involve him in solving problems they cannot solve on their own. I can highly recommend Olaf as an asset in any team.

Rune HansenAgile Coach and Trainer (SPC, RTE)

With his experience and his good relation to the engineers, he helped us to be more effective and focused on our daily work. His biggest project at Aklamio was to support the process of implementing structural changes in the engineering team, which has been achieved in professional and successful manner. Furthermore, he coached and supported our Product Owners in agile principles and helped to overcome issues that happen from time to time. I highly recommend to work with Olaf, and we will also do so again whenever we have the need for an Agile Coach or Scrum Master.
