About Me

Hi, I’m Mar­cus. I’m con­vinced that ele­phants can dance. And I have a dream.

I have a dream that one day the econ­o­my will serve peo­ple and life and not vice versa.

As an agile coach, cor­po­rate rebel, cul­tur­al engi­neer, con­sul­tant, train­er, and speak­er, I guide com­pa­nies on their jour­ney to more agili­ty and more human(e) liveliness.

Since 2010, I have been writ­ing on my blog about lead­er­ship, new work, agili­ty and many oth­er topics.
