Andre Du Plessis

Agile Transformation Consultant
“The past 100+ years was all about “exploiting” – the eternal obsession with increased efficiency. This is now being replaced by the need to “explore” – to discover new ways to bring value to our customers. This requires the unrelenting need to innovate and experiment with new ideas. This can only be done by being Agile.”

Throughout his career, Andre has always been guiding organizations in their change endeavors. This has ranged from identifying and shaping the imperative to change, to envisioning the future model, and finally executing the required change, whilst all along ensuring value creation. This has provided Andre with invaluable experience of understanding and realizing the true benefits derived from an Agile approach.

With over 20 years of experience across various industries ranging from FMCG, Pharmaceutical, Financial Services, and Communications, Andre has also gained experience of working across multiple business functions. This has equipped Andre with a deep understanding not only of the important role that each function plays individually, but more importantly, how all the different business functions need to collaborate to create the maximum value for the organization’s customers.

Along with a Masters degree in Commerce, Andre holds the Leading with Agility (ICP-LEA) professional certification through ICAgile as well as the SAFe® Program Consultant (SPC) designation from Scaled Agile.

When not guiding clients along their Agile journey, Andre enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids, most often exploring trails on their mountain bikes or arranging regional DownHill competitions in his home country of South Africa.
