Formula 1 is one of Sander’s biggest passions, but also a topic that ties in together really well with business agility. Formula 1 teams need to do so much more than just being shown on tv.

Ever since Agile started, different frameworks have emerged. There has been an abundance of training and hyped certificates to get people up to speed. After a few days of following a course, they are now the experts of agility. But does that really support you and your organization in creating the right value? True power comes from empowerment.
