Jurgen De Smet

I help leaders of large organizations deliver on their commitments to high performance.

Before, during and after an Agile adoption like LeSS, SAFe, Scrum at Scale, DAD or any kind of Lean transformation, large organizations often find that they need to de-scale and simplify organizational structures and processes. I function as an Executive-level guide for companies approaching their second growth phase. Industry leaders in banking, insurance, telecommunications, healthcare, utilities, media and agriculture hire me to help remove obstacles in their path to innovation.

We address specific pain points in the system so upper-management can learn to enable emergent solutions. For example:

➸  Horizontal complexity- consolidating functions across the enterprise

➸  Vertical complexity - shedding obsolete roles, layers and reporting structures

➸  Spatial complexity - preparing distributed teams for success

My engagements with clients achieve greater organizational alignment with fewer dependencies left to manage. Transparency with access to good data ensures empirically-sound decision making. As a result, the system becomes leaner, more customer-centric and ready with each successive change wave to build its greatest products yet.

Do you want to unlock strengths inside your organization’s culture to navigate new markets and technologies so you come out ahead of competition?  Commitment to high performance means removing whatever stands in the way.  Reach out to me - I bring intense curiosity to learn about your context and circumstances.

For companies that endure, simplicity brings its own rewards.

I am a Certified LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum) Trainer, Licensed Management 3.0 Trainer and ambassador at Startups.be, the group spearheading the entrepreneurial environment in Belgium. Inside I am still skateboarding, picking up new moves, adapting to ever-changing environments and freestyling with the best, wherever fresh design concepts for improving the world of work are emerging and being perfected.
