Stephanie Gasche, M.A.

Having been raised and educated internationally in Austria, France, UK, USA and Germany, I started working with agile methods in 2012. Whether it’s working on innovation projects, optimizing existing processes or developing organizations even further, I love supporting teams in a way that increases productivity, creativity and quality as this maximizes the satisfaction of employees and customers alike. Applying agile methods also in my spare time,  I have founded two lean start-ups that focus on having a social impact on society: a service platform for neighbourhood help as well as the first holistic, digital integration platform for migrants and refugees. 

EXPERTISE

Agile Consulting

My specialisation is working with interdisciplinary, agile teams - no matter whether projects, programmes, products or services. With the help of feedback loops, metrics, continuous improvement methods, fun, an exemplary agile mindset and my own approach, I lead teams that work in a VUCA world to success. My work is industry-independent and is relevant for all sizes - be it multinational corporations, SMEs or start-ups.

Organizational Development

Agility is necessary to either become or remain a market leader in these fast-moving times. Using a systems thinking approach, I guide employees, managers, departments (incl. production, HR, marketing, software development, innovation, product development) and entire organizations through their change. This ensures a holistic transition towards higher productivity, quality, adaptability, time-to-market as well as employee and customer satisfaction.

International, intercultural Teams

Having grown up and been educated internationally, I have for many years been working mainly with intercultural and internationally distributed teams. I know that it takes more than just tools to bridge the distance. In recent years, my intercultural experience has expanded through working with refugees and third-country nationals. It is this passion, experience and needs-based work that ensures top quality even in remote coaching, hybrid training or virtual team-building events.

SPEAKER

As an independent consultant, it is not only important to have my finger on the pulse of our times, but also to help shape it. For this reason, I like to share my experiences as a speaker at international conferences – virtually or in person. Selected examples of my presentations can be found on this website. I usually post my next scheduled talks in my Twitter-Feed. You are welcome to contact me for a tailored talk at your conference, meet-up or internal townhall meeting.
