A #LeanThinker on his way to Mastery, Purpose and Autonomy

About me...

My name is Matthias Rüedlinger or Matt for short. I like the lean mindset (kaizen, muda, mura, muri) and think we should use it more often in our daily business. My mission is to help building great software with customer value.

My passion is to enable teams and helping them to reflect and continuously improve. I'm interested in all kind of agile / lean, machine learning and software engineering topics.
