Michael May

Management Consultant

What’s useful is right – freely following this motto, Michael May goes about his work with a healthy dose of pragmatism and empowers agile teams to deliver. As a change agent who consistently aligns his actions with agile values, he also sees an opportunity for growth in every change. In the process, uncertainties naturally arise. This makes it all the more important for the management consultant to ensure psychological security and regular reflection. In this way, people can grow step by step from their challenges. “Agility is not an end in itself,” Michael emphasizes again and again. It’s about delivering, and only empowered teams can do that.

The trained banker remembers well the shambles that the financial crisis left behind in Germany as a business location. With the EU taxonomy, he now sees a unique opportunity for banks to regain proximity to their customers and to inspire them with innovative, sustainable solutions. As an industry expert and experienced ScrumMaster, Michael knows how to create the right environment for this. In his private life, the passionate sportsman regularly finds his balance in fitness training or enjoys the occasional change of scenery on short trips to other cities.
