Bernd Handke

Networks instead of hierarchies, collaboration instead of authority—to live this type of culture in an organization requires courage. Bernd Handke not only has the courage to question the mindset and mode of working, he is also ready to leave his own comfort zone. With several stays abroad focusing on organizational development and consulting, he demonstrated his ability as a generalist for interdisciplinary collaboration, has built up a broad spectrum of knowledge in various industries and a trained competence and sensibility in dealing with other cultures.

Through his enjoyment of collective achievement and a hands-on mentality, Bernd Handke quickly fits in in every new environment. What personally fascinates him about agile methods is that high productivity and an appreciation of interpersonal relationships in an organization are not mutually exclusive, but rather more so correlated to each other.
