SERVICES

CHANGE MANAGEMENT

In order for your organization to get faster and better you need to both change and improve – and by doing this both frequently and constantly. Making change happen and managing change is and will become the key factor to manage for successful organizations.

LEAN

Lean is the set of principles, the attitude and the approach I use in whatever I do. Optimizing the whole, Creating Flow, Eliminating waste, Empowering people and Continuous Improvements is part of the air I breathe.

AGILE

This is the way software should be developed. Deliver the right things, with good quality , continuously and fast.. lightning fast! The mantra is simple; Get the feedback (as fast as you can), learn from it, improve it and tweak it! It’s a virtuous cycle!

VISUALIZATION

I strongly believe in visualization and like to illustrate things in a cool way so that they get playful and easy to digest. An illustration can be so much more powerful and easier to grasp and understand.

TESTIMONIALS

TONY KRSTANOVSKI

TONY KRSTANOVSKI ANDROID DEPARTMENT MANAGER / SONY

Sasa is one of the most skilled and successful agile coaches I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. His experience covers small teams as well as large SW organizations. I would without hesitation hire Sasa again for coaching an organization that needs to develop and deliver in efficient and agile ways. Highly recommended!

FREDRIK APPELBERG

FREDRIK APPELBERG MANAGER ONLINE SERVICES / 3

If you organization needs a boost in its transformation to work Lean and Agile, bring Sasa in!!
I have worked with several Lean Coaches (consultants) they have all been good, but Sasa succeeded to sell the Agile way of working to top management and down.
It is absolutely key to have the whole organization on board the journey if you should succeed.

SLADJAN BOGOJEVIC

SLADJAN BOGOJEVIC SENIOR SOFTWARE PORTFOLIO PLANNER / SONY

When I think of term Agile, I think of Sasa. That’s how skilled this guys is. His experience covers small teams as well as large SW organizations. Very passionate about what he does and extremely professional. I would recommend him any day.

JOHN BURRIS

JOHN BURRIS CEO / BURRIS GROUP AB

Sasa would be an asset for nearly any company! His ability to inspire, motivate, and lead has set him apart from his peers. Through his daily work he has shown that “hard work” and “commitment to success” are more than just a catch phrases. He is quick to understand, and responsible in action. As a team player, Sasa contributes to the dynamics of a group, and acts as a catalyst for for the strengths within the group. It has been a pleasure to work Sasa, and I am pleased to give a positive recommendation.

BJÖRN WESTERLUND

BJÖRN WESTERLUND HEAD OF WEB DEVELOPMENT / HELSINGBORG

To me working with Sasa was a great lesson in how Agile Development can work when it really works. Sasa is extremely dedicated, outgoing and very easy to work with.

When we worked together I was business manger for the service there Sasa was responsible for the development and in this role Sase excelled in both making sure that deliveries exceeded expectations and that everyone around him had a great time working.

I am sure that our paths will cross again in the future an I am looking forward to it.

DILIPKUMAR PATEL

DILIPKUMAR PATEL PROGRAM MANAGER / SONY

Having Sasa as an agile coach was very valuable since he challenged us but at the same time coached us into thinking agile. Agile can remain just a buzz word if treated or understood wrongly but with Sasa’s able guidance and help we gained valuable insight into its understanding and application in our complex development setup. I strongly believe that his competence and humane approach brings a lot of value to people or organizations that want to adopt the agile way of working. Last but not the least I wish him all the very best in his future.
