Working together in natur creates a particular intensive team spirit
Focus on the agile essentials
Applying agile principles on a forest challenge requires focussing on agile basic values and principles. Your usual practice has to be transferred to the forest project. Do your practice work her, do they need to be rethought? What can you transfer to your professional challenge?

"After such a long time in the digital world and the associated limited opportunities to continue to grow as a team, it was incredibly important and valuable for us as a team to close the current year with an extraordinary team event and to start planning the new year with a lot of inspiration and joy.
Katharina and her team provided us with a wonderful setting for this. We could work together intensively as a team and learn to act together.
Dear Katharina, thank you for your professionalism, your joy and inspiration, and especially your humor at an event that we will remember for a long time."

"Dr. Katharina Wirtz and my 11-person student team conducted an exciting online Scrum course. My students not only got to know the SCRUM method, but were also able to try out all of the components on a real project. Katharina Wirtz accompanied the students through this online training with a lot of commitment and sensitivity. The participants not only learned a lot, they also have a lot of fun! I can only recommend this online training to every team as an introduction to SCRUM! "

I liked the approach of getting to know the Scrum method through a cooking course and the connection with African cuisine very much and were welcomed by Dr. Katharina Wirtz and Souleymane Ndiaye presented and supported excellently.

"So far I knew Dr. Wirtz as a personal coach. Now, I was very excited about our team workshop, which on the one hand aimed to improve processes, but also collaboration. The result after a very intense workshop was 100% worth it! The cooperation in the team has changed very positively, the team is motivated to tackle topics independently. Solutions have emerged where there were problems before. Dr. Wirtz was able to create trust and thus we worked out the issues in a solution-oriented manner. She helped us with examples and tools to focus on the core processes and interfaces. The team provided great support. The collaboration with Dr. Wirtz was just fun! "

As part of a team event for our female leaders, we decided to do Scrum Cooking at Katharina. The direct application of the Scrum principles in a playful setting - cooking - was a lot of fun for all of us and led to a lasting experience that we will still talk about a year later. Katharina conveyed the theory briefly, concisely and with a lot of fun. You can just tell that she lives the agile principles every day. Afterwards there was a lot of time for trying things out, making mistakes, exchanging ideas and reflecting, laughing together, celebrating small successes and enjoying delicious food. Thank you very much for a great and lasting day, Katharina! "
