Ben provided training for our Product Owners and Scrum Masters and it was a great experience for all involved. I was familiar with some of Ben’s publications prior to working with him, but I was still impressed by his vast knowledge, professionalism and genuine interest in understanding our pain points in order to tailor the course to address our specific needs. I would recommended Ben services, to any team that wants to genuinely improve.

As part of the agile transformation my client is in right now, we invited Ben to inspire us with an engaging session. I consider Ben as one of the very best Agile coaches in Holland and he did not disappoint us! He understands his audience and translates the agile/scrum theory with such an ease to a client specific context. His style of presentating is very enjoyable and it doesn’t matter for Ben to talk at big conferences or for smaller audiences (60 people); he connects with the people and shares so much knowledge and experience. After the session a lot of people were discussing and smiling. I would recommend Ben to everybody!

It doesn’t matter if you are starting with Agile or have scaled your enterprise to work in an Agile way; Ben can help you in every stage of your agile journey!

I have known Ben Linders for many years and more recently had the pleasure of working closely with him to organise three co-located conferences in Netherlands focused on software development and process improvement. Ben has been fantastic collaborator in the event – his deep knowledge of the subject matter, latest trends and the marketplace in general is impressive and it is clear he has a genuine passion for better process improvement. Ben is one of the first people we contacted with the idea of holding conferences in mainland Europe – right from the start he was an invaluable source of sound advice; always open and willing to share his thoughts and ideas, culminating in him chairing the Process Improvement conference, presenting and leading the experts panel. Ben is a super guy to work with and I highly recommend him.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Ben for our unit’s quality improvement initiative, and I’m glad to recommend the commendable work Ben has done towards it. Right from the initial kick-off phase till the end and during the follow up phase, Ben’s approach and deliverables are top notch. The way the assignment was handled per the contract and the deliverables were really satisfactory and the PDM method adopted also brought in good results in terms of visualization and also to act on the issues. This also set the base on handling potential future bugs. To summarize, Ben’s work and the PDM are value addition towards the improvement initiative we’ve had towards quality control. Looking forward to work with you again.

From 2004 till 2007 I have already been working with Ben in the Ericsson Software Development Organization. I see him as a very experienced person in the field of process management and quality assurance. For that the reason I was glad to offer him a contract in the organization where I am currently working. Ben is a guy who is able to make complex stuff easy and down-to-earth. Due to his flexible attitude he is able to tailor his ideas to the specific needs of an organization. It has always been a pleasure working with Ben.
