Bas Vodde

Bas Vodde is a coach, consultant, programmer, trainer, and author related to modern agile and lean product development. When he coaches organizations, he works on three levels: organizational, team and individual/technical practices. He has trained thousands of people in software development, Scrum and modern agile practices for over a decade.

Bas is the author of Scaling Agile and Lean Development: Thinking and Organizational Tools for Large-Scale Scrum and of Practices for Large-Scale Agile and Lean Development, both together with Craig Larman. 

He works for Odd-e, a company which supports organizations in improving their product development, mainly in Asia.  

Bas currently lives in Singapore where he ended up after living in Holland (born), China and Finland. He worked in start-ups and in very traditional environments. This last uncomfortable experience convinced him that agile and lean development is a more human way of developing software products – no matter how large your development is. 

He had the opportunity to introduce agile development (particularly scrum) in Nokia Networks (formally NSN), but had to move to Helsinki. There he watched dozens of product groups adopt scrum and other agile practices. The extreme cold in Finland forced Bas to migrate south and back to China where he focused on one large product group and its scrum adoption. 

Bas is interested in scrum with a special focus on large product development. But he also enjoyed working in technical practices, especially test-driven development (especially in embedded environments) and continuous integration. He keeps working as a developer because he strongly believes in lean production and quality management and, of course, programming. 

Bas is also one of the authors of the CppUTest unit test framework for C/C++ and of Osaka a Mac UI automation framework written in Ruby.
