11 Dec #043 – Oliver Bendig – CEO Matrix42
Oliver calls himself an “agilist”. Kindly, he introduced me to Jeff Sutherland who was a guest on this Podcast in the past and is the father of “Scrum”.
And he runs a German software company – Matrix42.
Matrix42 is currently mainly focused on Europe, but also has clients in Australia and the US.
So, how is it to lead a German software company in a US-dominated marketplace?
As a musician at heart, Oliver brings an interesting mix of skills and experiences to the role.
What I like in particular are his suggestions and advice. Listen in for those.
He also suggests being lean, data-driven and agile.
An insightful conversation and look behind the curtain of a leader in the Digital Age.
