Maarten Volders BVBA
As an independent software architect and Agile coach I help developers to think
out-of-the-box. Think beyond their traditional developer role as defined within
classical / non-Agile project management methodologies and help them achieve the
status of a real Agile team member, a member that knows the true value of
commitment within a self-organized Agile team. On its lowest level I stimulate
and guide them into the best practices that eXtreme Programming has to offer.
As for project managers with a non-Agile background like RUP, Prince2, PMI... I
guide them from that classical point-of-view towards one that stands for open
communication, commitment, self-improvement ... but most of all towards one that
centralizes the team, continuously stimulating their creativity and unblocking
any constraints they might encounter.
As for myself, I have a strong background in Agile (Scrum, Lean ...) / Non-Agile
(RUP, Prince2 ...) project methodologies combined with a strong believe in
technical methodologies like eXtreme Programming.
As for my technical skills as a developer I adhere fully to a thing Kent Beck,
the creator of XP once said: "I'm not a great programmer; I'm just a good
programmer with great habits".
