Dieter Stefanowitz, Profile Agile Coach Scrum Master Product Owner 202007.pdf


I am a seasoned professional with a proven track record of successful
delivered projects. Over the last twenty years, I worked for clients of many
different industries and cultural contexts.
My strengths are strong interdisciplinary thinking and acting, the ability
to connect business, technology, marketing and design with the customer
and her needs. I can guide through ambiguity and complexity and like to
solve problems.
The mission I pursue with empathy every day: intrinsic motivated
individuals aligned by shared values and focused on meaningful goals
