Hendrik Esser


Growing up in the 1980s I was a passionate computer game developer and computer club co-chair during my school and study times. I studied Electrical engineering at the Universität des Saarlandes, Germany, focusing on communication protocol software in my diploma thesis.

I am continuously exploring new ways to create better results and greater organizations.

That journey started when I joined Ericsson Germany in 1994 as a SW developer. Soon my passion brougt me to a leadership career from being a Technical Coordinator in 1996 through project management, project office management, portfolio- and technology management towards being the “COO” of one of Ericsson’s large development units. In 2008 I was a key driver to the agile transition of our organization. Through this engagement I became part of not only the Ericsson enterprise transformation, but also a strong contributor to the international agile community, exchanging and expanding knowledge and spreading agile mindset across industries. Part of my time I also work as a trainer for Product Development Leadership within Ericsson.

In parallel to my work at Ericsson, I am – as a volunteer – the Program Director of the Agile Alliance’s initiative “Supporting Agile Adoption”. I am an internationally active speaker at numerous conferences and company events on agile product development, HR and project management since 2012.
