About Us and How We Do Scrum | Saat Network GmbH

Peter Stevens believes that Agile, Scrum and Lean Startup are transforming the world of work. This transformation is driven by people who are passionate about its potential for their own daily lives. To paraphrase the “Agile Manifesto” for Software Development: “We are uncovering better ways of doing what we do, by doing it and by helping others to do it.”
Peter’s mission is to bring people together who are passionate about this transformation. As a Certified Scrum Trainer, Peter is active in Switzerland, Portugal, Italy and India. His coaching focus is on enabling start-ups to medium-sized organizations to meet the challenges of today’s economy.
Peter has taught Scrum, the Agile mindset, and related practices to thousands of developers, project leaders, product managers, and line managers. His customers include many well known organizations in Switzerland and beyond. In 2012, he co-initiated the Stoos Network to rethink management and in 2015, Peter founded the Scrum Breakfast Club with the objective of establishing a network for learning, networking and deepening understanding of Scrum and related movements.
What can you expect from Peter Stevens?
The Agile Manifesto is an excellent role model, because it emphasizes learning and collaboration, and it provides guidance for those moments “when push comes to shove.” If this statement resonates with you, then you will probably enjoy doing business with us:
We are discovering better ways of running our business, by doing it and helping others to do the same. Through our work, we have come to value:
- Customer relationships over commodity products
- Integrity over short term profits
- Why we do things over what we do
- Collaboration over going it alone
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
