Keynotes for fresh impetus and a lot of development drive

Are you looking for a keynote speaker to pep up your organisation and yourself? To help you to make effective use of agile practices in your organisation? Maybe you are facing a merger and wondering how you can handle this situation successfully? Then you have come to the right place!

When I started to get interested in organisational development, one colleague looked at me sympathetically and said: "Patricia, elephants can‘t fly." That is not true! With dedication, enthusiasm and the right tools you are able to make them fly ...

Grab some development drive and get started!

Yours sincerely, Patricia

Neu! Blog und Podcast: (Zwangs-) Agil im Home Office - kontrollieren Sie noch oder chillen Sie schon?

Die aktuelle Situation zwingt viele ins Home Office – auch die Führungskräfte. Kommen die damit klar? Ja, wenn sie Vertrauen in das agile Arbeiten ihrer Teams haben. Lesen und hören Sie mehr in meinem aktuellen DQS-Blogbeitrag und im ersten Podcast!


Außer Rand und Band?! Agil in der virtuellen Welt ( Gone Wild?! Agile at the home office - German)

Sie sitzen im Homeoffice und stellen fest, dass in der virtuellen Welt andere Spielregeln gelten? Sie überlegen, ob das nun agiles Arbeiten ist oder einfach nur Corona-Chaos? Und was machen Sie eigentlich, wenn Ihr Auditor kommt? Diese und weitere Fragen beantwortet mein Vortrag im Rahmen des DQS Digital Quality Space am 29.09.2020 um 17 Uhr.


"Agile practices and agile teams fit perfectly into a quality management system! Process regulation, control and documentation are necessary. But their definition can be far more general, flexible and self-determined than many people realise."
