Christoph Schmiedinger

Complex topics and challenging technologies? Christoph Schmiedinger is especially comfortable in these areas. He developed, among other things, digitalization strategies for large banks in Germany and Austria, and provides hands-on support for the transition from a traditional to an agile company. This native Austrian has worked with agile methods for almost ten years and has gained exceptional expertise in agile transitions and scaled projects, as well as in continued development of ERP and safety-critical systems. He shares his knowledge on these topics in trainings and as a speaker at various conferences.

Christoph Schmiedinger is a great example of how being goal-oriented, open and humorous is the best combination. He also enjoys working with people from various cultures. For Christoph, commitment is one of the most important agile values because he appreciates the trust that is placed in him.
