Two new directors have been appointed to the board of the Ashford-based Agile Business Consortium, the not-for-profit organisation that pioneered Agile techniques in the workplace and continues to be at the forefront of the field.
Peter Coesmans is a programme and interim manager currently working in hi-tech.
He has run major change programmes in many areas, including food, public transport, energy, research, infrastructure and city development.
He is a senior team lead assessor for the international Project Award, for which he has assessed projects all over the world, and is a jury member for IPMA’s best Project Manager of the World award.
Peter was one of the first to adopt an Agile approach for projects outside of IT, and was lead author of the international competence baseline for programme management published in 2015.
Philip Alexander is a director of People Platform and has consulted for some of the world’s leading brands on Employee Experience and Human Capital Strategy, and is the editor for StartUp Digest on the topic.
Previously, Philip worked as Head of Strategy, Talent and Operations for a VC-backed start-up. He is also a Governor of two schools in London, and a mentor with a leading UK charity.
Philip authored a book published on the future of work, and speaks regularly on how organisations can adapt for the future of work, and on automation in enterprise and HR.
Welcoming the appointments, Geof (corr) Ellingham, Chairman of the Agile Business Consortium, said: “We are always looking to strengthen our board with experience and Agile thinking leadership, both of which Peter and Philip bring in abundance.
“Between them they will add a wealth of knowledge and drive as we continue our work to promote Agile thinking in businesses around the world.”
