Who we are
We are Andreas and Susanne Bartel, Kanban and agile coaches and trainer based in Hamburg, Germany.
We equip teams, leaders, and organizations with modern management tools to design their work systems single-handedly in a way that maximizes their effectiveness. We teach you how to fish rather than fishing for you!
What inspires us and keeps us going
Wir sind gerne in der Kanban und agilen Community unterwegs und lieben Bücher die unseren Horizont erweitern oder auch mal unser bisheriges Bild auf den Kopf stellen.

- David J. Anderson, Mike Burrows und gesamte Lean Kanban-Community
- Eliyahu M. Goldrat’ Theory of Constraints
- Dave Snowden’s Cynefin Modell
