Enterprise IT Transformation Consultant

"Don’t do what everybody else is doing – those things are already being done."
While my title stipulates that I am an Enterprise IT Transformation Consultant, IT is just a part of the agile transformation I facilitate. Guiding organizations towards an agile mindset requires a lot of team and individual training. During coaching sessions, I try to not only give participants practical tools, but also fundamentally change the way they perceive their work, their organization and how it is structured.

Every session with a client requires a different approach based on where they are currently in their transformation and how they can develop further as an agile organization. I spend a large part of my day talking about what agile means and how it can radically improve businesses at every level.
“Sometimes I fee like a priest preaching the gospel when I talk about agile.”
Don’t let anyone take your faith away from you. Having said that, it’s also important to ensure you don’t fall into the trap of becoming stubborn and closed-minded in your approach. Like any other organization, we at Accenture always have to be on the lookout for that.
