I’m an experienced and pragmatic agile practitioner. I take teams beyond “getting agile” to “embracing agile” via training, mentoring, coaching and facilitation.
As I guide them towards the deliberate and joyful pursuit of high performance, my weapons are well-asked questions, insightful retrospectives, and an ability to withstand awkward silences. I’m ready to share ideas, collaborate, argue, and above all promote discourse that moves agile values and principles forward in the company, communities and the world.
I have run the spectrum of software delivery roles over my 17 professional years, from early days as a developer, project manager and CTO that lead me to my agile journey starting about seven years ago. I lead an agile transformation for different teams and small companies. I specialize in empathetic, human leadership built on lean and agile principles.
I am originally from Kyrgyzstan, living in Belarus, and my spare time raising three sons, leading Agile communities in the homeland and helping with the development of local ones here in Minsk.

Since 2009, Valentyn is passionate about creating effective development teams and organisations. Through trial and error he has arrived at a very obvious success recepie for building a great team – you have to give a damn. Caring is such a simple concept, yet this crucial bit is often overlooked. Even more so in an outsourcing environment. Should you get attached to a colleague or a project, given you will part ways in six month’s time? Valentyn believes that it’s imperative to create a culture where “giving a damn” is championed. This concept is the cornerstone of any agile transformatio.
Together, we’ll explore successfull examples of such cultures, analyze cases where things went haywire and share tips on how to build offshore teams that bring added value to their customer by “giving a damn”. We’ll learn about selecting and fostering the team, manage your client while the team learns to care and why you should give a damn about all this.
