Annette has 30 years’ experience with IT project management and line management from Digital, HP, and other large global companies. In 2008 she founded Xvoto, an agile consultancy helping organizations with planning and executing agile transformations with respect for their particular culture, context, and agile readiness. She also helps her clients with scaling agile to the program level and is an experienced Kanban and Scrum coach and trainer.
Annette’s theoretical foundation and knowledge of Scrum and Kanban is widely acknowledged, but she firmly believes that theory cannot stand alone. The real value is created only when you succeed in relating the theory to the practical reality of the organizations that want to transform.
When she is not busy with client work, she is blogging, writing articles, and giving public speeches. Always about agile systems and how to make them work in real life. Her mantra is: “Reality always wins!”.
