Boost your agility

Is agility part of your business strategy?

The key to increase your agility is to unlock the learning capabilities of your organization. And enable learning to lead to meaningful and sustainable change. But this is easier said than done.

About us

Matthijs de Booij

Trainer, Facilitator, Consultant

My mission: inspiring others to discover new ways of working.

I have provided 100+ training courses and workshops in the fields of Scrum, Agile Product Development, and Kanban.

Over the years, I have advised and coached 15+ different organizations within various industries from banking to healthcare. Before becoming an external consultant, trainer, and coach, I have been 5+ years part of different Scrum Teams. During that time I have been a Development Team member, Product Owner, and Scrum Master.

As an official Scrum.org licensed Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) and Accredited Kanban Trainer (AKT), I am trusted by the creators of Scrum and the Kanban Method to create the best possible foundation you can build on in practice.

Trainer, Scrum, and Product Management enthusiast

Ever since I witnessed the benefits an Agile transformation can bring, I am passionate about inspiring teams and organisations to make the transition and help improve their workspace. Doing so, I have facilitated countless workshops and trainings around Scrum, Agility and Product Management.

Having hands on experience as both a Product Owner, Scrum master and Transformation Consultant, I understand more than anyone that bringing Scrum theory into practice can prove to be very challenging. During my training courses, I draw examples from my experience varying from SME-companies in the Netherlands to corporate multinationals. Operating in fields from IT to Financial Services and Marketing.

In 2019, I felt honored to be admitted to 'The Home of Scrum' as a Scrum.org licensed Professional Scrum Trainer (PST). Acknowledging my passion and efforts as a trainer.

Trainer, facilitator, consultant, coach

I have been working over a decade as a software developer with Microsoft technologies. After that, I worked several years as a project manager with classic waterfall methodologies until I discovered agile as my new favourite approach. I ran my first agile project in 2005 and started using Scrum in 2008.

In 2010 I joined Scrum.org and became a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST). Since then, I’ve helped numerous individuals and companies with introducing or improving Scrum. My current passion is DevOps which brings great benefits for organizations by gaining the ability to deliver software in shorter release cycles.

I am practically my whole career working with Microsoft technologies, with a focus on Microsoft Visual Studio and Azure DevOps. Since 2007 I have been continuously awarded with the Microsoft MVP award.

Director project management - Comscore

"A few years ago I have joined a PSMI course given by Matthijs. The course was given in an extremely professional way both on the material that was taught, the way it was taught and time management. All Scrum principles were explained in a very clear way using multiple examples from the daily routine of a Scrum Master. Matthijs was very knowledgeable in the agile world in general and in the Scrum world in particular and although I already practiced Scrum for a few years as a Scrum Master, the amount of knowledge I gained in those few days is priceless. Furthermore, Matthijs is a great person who teaches the material in a very positive and friendly environment which gave me as a student lots of motivation to explore more in the agile world."

"I participated in Professional Scrum Product Owner Training which was facilitated by Matthijs. This was the best content and facilitated training that I have ever had. Matthijs balanced the complexity of the material with the need to handle questions from the delegates in a flexible and enjoyable way. Far from the normal “dry” training that I have had in the past."

Product Owner AI for employees - ABN Amro

"I've had many trainers during my professional career, but Matthijs was refreshing! In 2018 I followed the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO I) course. The training itself was setup as a Scrum Sprint, all topics were handled as Product Backlog Items, the training schedule was the roadmap, and so on. Not your everyday Powerpoint slide training, there was even no Powerpoint at all. Great! And on top of that, Matthijs is an experienced Product Owner so he knows what he's talking about. Learn Scrum from the best, learn from Matthijs."
