Dr. Boris Kneisel is the co-founder of herontix GmbH - the Agile Innovation Performance Excellence consultancy - we Agilize, Innovate, Defragment & Accelerate.
Prior to founding herontix, Boris served 20 yrs at SAP SE - the German inventor of standardized ERP-software for enterprises, where he ran groups on Research & Breakthrough Innovation finally leading SAP's Global Agile Cloud practice as its Lead Agile Coach since 2012. His responsibilities covered increasing performance-contributions of agility & scale-out into working models of 30.000 SW-developers and related roles incl. adaptation of mgmt structures.
For 15+ yrs Boris collected vast experience applying innovation methods - namely Design Thinking / customer-experience (UX) techniques, Business-Model-Innovation using various canvas-models (e.g. by A.Osterwalder, A.Maurya), and not to forget TRIZ - the ultimate creative problem solving framework for wicked problems. Ramping inventive solution-ideas implementation-wise up to speed, Boris recently experienced all major Agile scaling-frameworks in action - introduced to most of them by their respective co-inventors.
Boris also likes to use case-specific canvases, frameworks & methods beyond mere mainstream for better fit towards customer needs and has therefore also developed some own contributions - namely in the area of innovation mgmt & discovery procedures. However he carefully inspects case-by-case and tries to leverage existing stuff in order not to re-invent the wheel all over. He likes practices that resonate with Agility and align towards Kanban and its sibling Enterprise-Services-Planning (ESP).
