Claudia Van Valkenhoef is an Application Development and Delivery Manager in the Digital Solutions Delivery group within Red Hat IT organization. She has over 18 years of experience in software development and delivery. She believes that her experience as a software engineer and later as a technical project manager, helps her be a better manager. She is proficient at engaging and keeping the global development teams focused on delivering quality software applications on time, by effectively collaborating, facilitating, leading and coaching.
As an early adopter of agile methodologies, she knows how to adapt the agile principles to each team or project to drive the best outcomes. Her preferred agile method is Kanplan, a combination of Kanban and Scrum; ideal for teams that want the flexibility of Kanban combined with the planning structure of Scrum.
