About

Hi there! We are Christiaan Verwijs and Barry Overeem. Our mission is to liberate individuals and teams from dehumanizing and ineffective ways of organizing work by putting them in control of shaping their future.



How we work on our mission

We do this by giving (Scrum) teams all over the world the products, content, and community they need to make this work. One part of this consists of the free content we create (weekly blog posts, books, weekly podcasts). Another part is the community we’re building through the monthly meetups we host for The Liberators Network. And yet another part is are a series of products to help teams discover what is holding them back, to investigate the root cause, and to ignite real change. This includes exercises such as "52 Cases for Scrum Teams", the Zombie Scrum SurveyTeam Metrics and everything we offer in our webshop


How you can help us
If you appreciate our content and benefit from our materials, you can help us in this mission by becoming a patron. This gives us the much-needed financial support to create more content and more products. But more importantly, we can unleash more teams together with our growing community of patrons. Will you join us?

Who are we?
We have both been active as Scrum Masters for a variety of organizations for a dozen years. With that practical, hands-on experience in our backpacks, we became Professional Scrum Trainers and Stewards at Scrum.org. With Scrum.org, we developed the Professional Scrum Master II Class to help Scrum Masters build a deeper understanding of the purpose of Scrum.
Aside from Scrum, we are active members of the global Liberating Structures community.

We founded the Dutch Liberating Structures User Group (now 2.000+ members), hosted the first Immersion Workshops in the Netherlands. With Liberating Structures, we have facilitated hundreds of small-scale meetups and dozens of large-scale gatherings (up to 200 participants).

Barry lives in Bunschoten with his girlfriend and three kids. He has a background in business administration (B.ba). Christiaan lives in Utrecht, is married to Lisanne Lentink, and has a background in (organizational) psychology (M.sc) and software engineering (B.ec).
