Coming Back to Finland


My adventure in San Francisco is coming to a close. While 12 months here isn’t anywhere enough, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to join Futurice as an Organisational ScrumMaster. Don’t take me wrong, I love my job at CollabNet, training people in Scrum and Agile. And I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see the west coast of US close up. But I’m ready for the next challenge.

I pretty much explained the role in this post on CollabNet’s blog site. Though I’m replacing any notion of Team with the whole organisation. CEO Tuomas Syrjänen has been trailblazing this work in his role, and admittedly, being ranked as #1 place to work in Europe is pretty good recognition for a job well done. With me in my role, we can together put more focus and face the future challenges with more support for cultural growth.

With that in mind, one of the first things I did was to start organizing Lean Startup and Management 3.0 courses :). They are now happening in mid-November. If you want to join the courses, check out this blog for more information.

I will still continue running CSM & CSPO courses and small-scale coaching, but again on eastern side of the Atlantic. If interested, you can still contact me at
