Defeating the Plouf


I am a freelance Agile coach. I help shifting to Agile/Lean practices and handling this change at a larger scale (organisation, management, culture). My background : a coding kid, a professional Java developer, a JEE consultant. In my job as in my life, I try to bring a different perspective, crossing approaches. When it leads me to new discoveries, I share them with my communities through various live talks (USI Conference, Agile tours, Rotary). My talks are usually found offbeat regarding their content or their style ; well, i just try to deliver my messages as best as I can.


Have you ever been in a team, or an organization, where every initiative is just lost? To the point where any change fails before it even starts? There was a team I worked with who went the same path. All of our initiatives went «Plouf» (dixit). Innovators became demotivated, frustrated.  But one day, we felt it : we were not alone. An invisible, hidden force was preventing us from moving on, taking actions, launching our ideas. We named it “The Plouf”. And we fought it. Nowadays, I’m a Plouf hunter, and I can teach you how to defeat it. I will teach you what it is, how to find it, then how to track it down.
