Statements von Kunden

Bernhard hat uns bei der agilen Transformation der Konzern IT maßgeblich unterstützt. Die Zusammenarbeit war auf persönlicher und fachlicher Ebene sehr gut. Wenn es nötig war, hat er unsere Sichten, Ziele oder Herangehensweise in konstruktiver Form hinterfragt und gemeinsam mit uns an Lösungen gearbeitet. Wir haben sein Verständnis für die Förderung einer agilen Organisationskultur sehr geschätzt und er konnte im Rahmen der Zusammenarbeit, Mitarbeiter und Führungskräfte, gleichermaßen coachen und weiterentwickeln.

I had the pleasure of working together with Bernhard for around a year. During this time he helped me immensely with my journey from a different career path within HR to being one of the main drivers in our transition to a more Agile IT Department at Swarovski. Together we guided multiple teams to their new agile team process and I've seen Bernhard being able to take different approaches and techniques to match the teams needs and thus make them feel comfortable with taking big changes in their team setup.

Bernhard is a highly skilled Agile Coach and his open and collaborative character makes working in a team easy. Due to his experience he is able to combine the traditional Project Management with Agile Ways of Working and is very empathetic with his clients.

During the time he joined us at Swarovski I got to learn a lot from Bernhard which I'm grateful for and I hope that we get to work together again in the future!

Bernhard is a great guy to work with.

I want to point out the two assets that I like most about him: (1) He is a real active listener - when you talk to Bernhard he is really there. (2) He loves visualizing the things he is witnessing - which can be really mindopening (or even mindblowing) when you face challenges.

It was great to work with him and I am happy to have him as sparring partner for current projects!

Bernhard hat es innerhalb sehr kurzer Zeit geschafft, in mein komplexes Thema mehr Klarheit und Transparenz zu bringen. Sein sehr feinfühliges Durchleuchten auch bei heiklen Punkten war äußerst angenehm und ich fühlte mich sehr gut aufgehoben bei ihm. Hierdurch konnte ich gute Fortschritte erreichen.

Gerne wieder!
