From Agile Coach to Manager. And back or did I go back?
In 2021 I went from being an independent agile coach consulting in my own company to being an employee for the first time in 8 years; in a startup becoming a scaleup and the first time as a manager. This is the story of how that turned out. I was not sure, if I would be a good manager; it turned out that I was and that some of my experience as a coach was a huge benefit. I will talk about some of the differences and similarities with the two roles - the obvious ones and the ones I was not expecting. Did I go back? Guess you will have to come to my talk and see 🙂
Key takeaways…
