Carsten-Hendrik Rasche

Carsten Rasche gained his first experience with user-centered product development, with Scrum and Agile right in Silicon Valley. The organizational psychologist is naturally fascinated by the way in which consistent orientation to customer needs affects the internal organization of a company. Within transformation projects his expertise focuses on organizational learning and coaching of leadership teams. Next to the work with clients Carsten built up the Scrum4Schools initiative, which supports the use of Scrum in the primary and secondary education contexts.

As a trained mediator & facilitator, Carsten contributes with his ability to keep calm and collected even in tense and complex situations, analyzing rationally, thus creating greater clarity. In doing so, it is important for him to approach people in an open and appreciating manner, and to create a sound base for building confidence.
