Biography

I'm an agile enthusiast. I'm interested in seeing how teams can involve the end user in their agile process. In my daily work as a freelance ux researcher, I put this to practice. I believe we can greatly learn from our users and other stakeholders, no matter what project we're in, no matter which stage the product is in, and I think we should be involving them more in the development process. I'm not a developer, and I was trained as a designer, but I chose to do applied user research instead. The agile way of doing things has attracted me for some time and I've started implementing this in my work.

Mini Golf Tactics

Or How Product Vision is Agile’s best friend. As a child I was already partial to Agile Thinking. I remember one of my first mini-golf games, where I – unaware of the goal of using as few strokes as possible – carefully directed the ball towards the putt little by little. I had to be …
