It is the unknown waiting for me around the next corner that drives me
Thorsten supports and accompanies teams and companies on their way to becoming more agile. Inspired by his work as a mountain bike trainer, he focuses on trial and error in a protected space. His guiding principle is: what is learned becomes understood through experience. He works a lot with playful approaches such as Playing Lean, Lego Serious Play and Minecraft Scrum to generate direct experiences that his participants can fall back on again and again in their everyday lives.
Thorsten brings many years of experience as a project and product manager in a wide variety of companies. He has worked in corporations, family-run small businesses and startups in a wide variety of industries. The ability to quickly find his way in ever new contexts and to act pragmatically and undogmatically has been just as helpful as it is now in his work as a trainer and consultant. The agile mindset is particularly important to him. Which tools and methods ultimately suit a team or a company is something Thorsten approaches with an open mind.
As a certified online facilitator, Thorsten has been working with distributed, international teams for many years. In recent months, he has been working intensively on integrating his experiential approach into the virtual space.
Thorsten is an electrical engineer, systemic team coach and mountain bike trainer at the DAV.
Thorsten lives in Hamburg and in his free time he misses the Alps. But mountain biking is also possible in the north, you just get to the top faster ;)
