Karl's Bio:
Karl Muenchow is the founder, CEO and President of XoJom Group, Inc, a management consulting firm focused on helping organizations better execute highly complex, high-uncertainty programs via the pragmatic, common-sense adoption of Lean-Agile. Since 2007 Karl has guided XoJom Group's work with clients worldwide, providing invaluable lessons and insights. These, in turn, have allowed organizations to not only accelerate the process of learning and piloting Lean-Agile but also in successfully scaling and expanding Lean-Agile across their organizations. XoJom Group's clients in Europe, India, Brazil, and across the United States have leveraged Lean-Agile to deliver complex systems efforts costing upwards of $150M that often required the coupling of both agile and traditional approaches.

Karl has dedicated his professional life to helping clients create a culture of agility through embracing creative, adaptive, and lean processes and approaches. This vision guides XoJom Group's client's in their pursuit of innovation and meaningful transformative team and organizational change. His passion for spreading the message of agility and flexibility and pragmatic, results-oriented experience have led to the Project Management Institute (PMI) asking XoJom to provide PM training world-wide on Lean / Agile best practices in hybrid environments illustrated through XoJom's real-life implementations.

Besides holding a Dipl.-Ing (FH) Diploma Engineering Degree from the University of Reutlingen, Germany, Karl is a Certified Scrum Master (CSM), Certified Scrum Practitioner (CSP), Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO), and Project Management Professional (PMP)®. He belongs to the Agile Alliance, Scrum Alliance, Project Management Institute (PMI), and the Association of German Engineers (VDI)®, and actively contributes to the advancement of lean-agile on a global basis. Besides actual implementations with clients worldwide, Karl lectures on pragmatic Lean-Agile implementations and his programs have become the lead offering at PMI Congresses and PMI SeminarsWorld® globally.
