Jurgen Appelo

As a serial founder, successful entrepreneur, author, and speaker, I am pioneering in the areas of agility, innovation, leadership, and customer experience. I offer talks, webinars, and concrete games, tools, and practices to help creative organizations survive and thrive in the 21st century.

I call myself a creative networker. But sometimes I am a writer, speaker, trainer, entrepreneur, painter, manager, blogger, reader, dreamer, leader, freethinker, or… Dutch guy. Inc.com has called me a Top 50 Leadership Expert and a Top 100 Great Leadership Speaker. Since 2008, I write a blog at NOOP.NL, offering ideas on the creative economy, agile leadership, organizational change, and personal development. And I work with my teams at Happy Melly, Shiftup, and Mind Settlers on a daily basis.

I am the author of the book Management 3.0, which describes the role of the manager in agile organizations. I wrote the little book How to Change the World, which describes a supermodel for change management. My book Managing for Happiness offers you practical ideas to engage workers, improve work, and delight clients. And finally, Startup Scaleup Screwup offers dozens of practices for teams working on new product development.
