Free Agile! Community is an ideation and knowledge space for the growing community of people engaging in agile transformation and how it can be taken beyond the standards defined by agile methodologies.
My name is Harald Dietrich and I’m part of the Business Enablement Leadership Team of an international software company for assisted and autonomous driving solutions with headquarter in Gothenburg, Sweden. I am working at the Munich office, Germany, and my responsibility is to thrive and prosper an agile organization of highly performant teams. I love working with people and teams and enjoy to see them becoming successful based on their own ideas and a mutual goal. Personally I see a strong competitive advantage in working with teams and people from various locations and with different nationalities.
“The stance of a community being agnostic to culture and location is contributing to a particular, agile mindset, which is a guarantee for decent robustness towards any kind of change.”
Valuation of the power of the teams and their skills for me comes in first place today. With a background in software development and architecture as well as product owner, I have tried to create a special sense for the needs of development teams. I am making use of my experiences to break up settled patterns on a regular basis and make change and renewal a source of strength.
An agile mindset is the essential aspects of a learning organization today. While I can see and understand many of the difficulties in setting the foundation for agile teams in learning organizations, from time to time I note down my ideas and experiences, links to essential resources and inspiring quotes on the topic. The Free Agile! Community site is here to share them with you, my colleagues, friends, and other open minded people in the world wide agile web now.
