Dr Islam Choudhury - International Director

Dr Islam Choudhury - International Director

I have been collaborating with DSDM, now Agile Business Consortium, since 1998. I work as an Associate Professor at Kingston University London. Agile deals with the heart of any organisation, which are its empowered and motivated people. These people work effectively in a team to deliver real business benefit continually. I believe in the Agile mindset and I am committed to promote this successful Agile way of working to people all over the world.

Dieter Strasser - Ambassador for Germany and AustriaDieter Strasser - Ambassador for Austria and Germany

I have been a keen supporter for AgilePM since my first contact in 2011. The whole product-family are an expression of my attitude. I´m glad to act as an International Ambassador and be a valuable part in the Ambassador group. This helps me to exchange my ideas and get new inspirations. Outside my enterprise I love sports, animals, culture and beer.

Seit ich über AgilePM gestolpert bin, agiere ich als glühender Verfechter dieser Philosophie. Die ganze Produktfamilie überzeugt mich immer wieder. Es ist schön, einen wertvollen Teil zu liefern. Austausch und Inspiration unterstützen mich laufend. Ausserhalb meiner beruflichen Tätigkeit liebe ich Sport, Tiere, Kultur und Bier.
