Welcome to my blog. My name is Robert van Lieshout, founder and senior consultant at PragmaticAll. I am also a partner at Kompetent, a member of IIBA, and I am a certified Scaled Agile Framework Program Consultant, Scrum Master and Lean Six Sigma green belt. I have more than 25 years working experience, including 10 years as a requirements/business analyst and 20 years as a trainer.
I started PragmaticAll in 2012 to have the freedom to do challenging and fun assignments in a no-nonsense way. I prefer to do a combination of analysis assignments, training courses, coaching and consultancy.
Prior to founding PragmaticAll, I worked as business analyst and consultant with Sogeti Netherlands. I was a key contributor to Sogeti’s Requirements Lifecycle Management (RLcM) approach, and helped develop a variety of services based on RLcM such as training courses, requirements workshops, assessments, requirements inspections and awareness games.
Previous employers include Simbon Innovation Management (now BiCore), Imtech, Alert Automation Services, ICT Automatisering and Krist&Ketel. I started my professional career in 1987 as a software engineer at Software Sciences (later Data Sciences and now part of IBM Global Services).
