MICHAEL CRAMER

Hi, I am Michael

Hal­lo aus München! Als unab­hängiger Agile Facil­i­ta­tor, Train­er und Coach set­ze ich mich mit Lei­den­schaft dafür ein, Teams und Organ­i­sa­tio­nen erfol­gre­ich zu machen, so dass sie wertvolle Ergeb­nisse aus­liefern und sich auf die Arbeit freuen. Ich begeis­tere mich für Exper­i­mente, Gam­i­fi­ca­tion und Musik.

Hel­lo from Munich! As an inde­pen­dent Agile Facil­i­ta­tor, Train­er, and Coach, I am pas­sion­ate about mak­ing teams and orga­ni­za­tions suc­cess­ful so that they deliv­er valu­able results and look for­ward to their work. I am enthu­si­as­tic about exper­i­ments, gam­i­fi­ca­tion, and music.
