Since 2000 Private, one person, unsubsidized faculty for optimizing the results of development projects:

1998-now Project Coach: optimizing development management and teams based on a very pragmatic approach. Taught and coached, since 2001, well over 400 projects/teams in 40+ organizations in the Netherlands, Belgium, China, Germany, Ireland, India, Israel, Japan, Poland, Romania, Serbia, South Africa, the UK and the US, which led to a wealth of experience in which approaches work better and which work less well in practice. Within only several weeks, projects coached start delivering better results in some 30% less time by focusing on business results and optimizing teamwork. That's only the beginning. Optimizing QA activities. Coaching management. Helping people with how to better do reviews and how to better design reliable electronics, firmware and software. Working all over the world.

Sometimes I've been asked, and still like to do actual electronic product development (hardware and firmware).
