Who are we, if not measured by our impact on others? That’s who we are! We’re not who we say we are, we’re not who we want to be – we are the sum of the influence and impact that we have, in our lives, on others.
— Carl Sagan

Testimonials

Roger Jansson, Senior Manager within Application Development, Sony Mobile

Tom was a key contributor of driving the change in our department. With is excellent ability to analyze and visualize a situation he really made sure that we, as a team, would drive improvements in the right direction. This together with his experience he really supported setting a continuous improvement foundation in my team that really has paid off.

Robert Ruzicka, Senior Manager Platform Development, Sony Mobile

Tom worked primarily with two of my sections, introducing a number of tools and methods to improve the throughput and efficiency in our work. I value Tom really well and can recommend him strongly to anyone interested in agile methodology and would not hesitate to use his services again. The positive energy that Tom brings with him is unbeatable.

Peter Blenessy, Manager at Sony Mobile

Tom coached my team to adopt a more lean/agile approach in the daily work and towards change management in general. It was inspiring to see the passion and genuine interest for improvement that drives Tom, and the aim for clarity and result orientation he contributes with. Seeing the results in my team, I introduced him to my management team and he successfully coached us to defining the wanted position we were lacking. It was an effective and efficient co-operation and I would like to give Tom my very best recommendations.
