Mikael Lundgren

@leanspired
www

Growing up north of the arctic circle, I eventually moved southwards to earn a M.Sc. in Computer Science. During the 90's I slowly became disillusioned over the way product development was conducted and started looking for alternative ways forward, eventually finding lean and agile in 2001. I have since worked as a leader, consultant and trainer in the area, eventually becoming a CST in 2006, and founding my own company Levla in 2011.

My spare time is spent producing videos on music production, socializing with family and friends, reading, writing, photographing (spending inordinate amounts of time sorting and tinkering with the photos afterwards) and occasionally playing Minecraft.
