What or who inspired you to join this Meetup?

As a startup entrepreneur, business angel I learnt the hard way what it means if you do not follow the lean methodologies ... :(. Therefore after reading Eric Ries' book in summer 20012 (I wished I had done so earlier ..) I pledged to not invest in any venture, who does not apply this methodology :).

How do you currently practice lean methodologies? What industry are you in/do you want to work in?

I got to know scrum in 2007 and apply it more and more together with other methodologies/frameworks like agile, kanban and lean. I am a Scrum Master since 2010 and Product Owner since 2012.

Are you interested in leading discussion groups/workshops/giving talks?

yes, I would like to do that and also to share my experience in community building. I contributed actively to the build up of the Lean Agile Scrum (LAS) Community in Switzerland together with a committed team of enthusiasts. After having started with the first monthly "Scrum Breakfasts" in 2007 in Zürich. Besides Zürich, which organised more than 50 Scrum Breakfasts events, also in Berne, Basel, Lucerne, Lausanne/Geneva organise independent grass root teams monthly Scrum Breakfasts (see: as well as a yearly LAS conference (see: More than 1000 people attend these events every year.
