Who is RainFellows

We help companies and their leaders to become more productive and efficient using Agile and Lean methodologies. By engaging people across internal borders, we build a culture of collaboration, openness and better communication. 

We are a team of coaches, consultants and mentors having more than 15 years of experience with introducing Agile and Lean principles and methods in complex and highly evolving environments such as technological and telecommunication companies.

In 2006, following our success at Nordic IT company Tieto and based on a demand for Agile methodologies, we setup team of Agile Couches  and we started to share our own experience  with other teams across Europe. For couple of years we were part of IT Cluster in Finland, we were rolling-out Agile and Lean to companies of different sizes, from start-ups to large enterprise organizations.

In 2013 we have founded own consulting company – RainFellows and we started to introduce Agile and Lean principles also outside of IT industry. As an example we can name Arcelor Mittal, a steel producer, who we teach principles of Lean manufacturing and Kaizen. In 2013 these trainings contributed to double production of local Arcelor Mittal’s division.

We are members of top expert group Red Button. We have co-founded sharing platforms for IT geeks (TechMeetup Ostrava) and entrepreneurs (BusinessCon).
